black bodybuilders & musclemen

I know this site is about "bigblkmuscles" and everything, but is there such a thing as TOO big.? Like for example, I feel like bodybuilder type men are nice to look at. However, some of them are WAY too big for my tastes and I know their muscles would be all hard and whatnot. What's your take on this.?

When someone is so large he can no longer move smoothly, when he can't piston his waist or dance, he's too big (for my  taste) . . . Ulisses is NOT too big ;)

Hi Dee. Thanks for posting this. Yes, there's such a thing as "too big" and has nothing to do with aesthetics or health. I wanted to share this quote from a link I found (see below) that addresses some of this: 

For some men muscle development is such a complete preoccupation that they will miss important events, continue training through pain or broken bones, even lose their job rather than interrupt their physical development schedule. Curiously, these same men are not in love with their bodies. Despite a well developed physique they are unlikely to show it off and will shy away from situations that expose their bodies. http://menshealth.about.com/cs/menonly/a/bigorexia.htm

Then you have 'bigorexia' which some refer to as 'reverse anorexia'.....The main characteristic of bigorexia is the thought that no matter how hard you try your body is never muscular enough. We've spent so much time, energy and resources focusing on women's body image issues, we've neglected paying attention to the men who suffer similar maladjustment trying to conform to some arbitrary standard of "masculine" perfection.

For others "too big" can also signal abuse of steroids and an excessive burden on the heart muscles to pump blood to all that excess musculature. People come to the gym with all sorts of "issues" that are never addressed since gyms are basically there to make money, not to counsel or mentor (unless you're a competitive body builder).

i agree....

Well said.

IF A DUDE LOSES THAT V-TAPERED LOOK I AM DONE. THE BODYBUILDERS OF TODAY WILL WALK AROUND AT 300 LBS FOR MOST OF THE YEAR AND CRASH DIET TO GET DOWN TO BE 270 WITH A 40 INCH WAIST ON STAGE!

You have to remember that there are different catagories in body building. Some tall some short some tall & lean.

Like Flex wheeler he was cool but he got a little tubby towards the end. Then there's that guy with the big wang Uyllisses .... I like his shape and body style. but you must remember, the different catagories

You said it, Mos Def.

That's it. You hit the head on the nail.

And from what I read that is a very dangerous thing to do crash diets SMH

I knew who Morris and Ulisses were. Thanks, LegLuver for introducing me to Kenyatta. Whew! Biting my knuckles . . .

I feel you on this man and I gotta agree and say there IS a thing as being too big like Ronnie Coleman. I like the one LIKE Ulisses, Morris Mendez, Kenyatta Wilson(check out the pics in my profile) cause they have size and their abs are great, not that bloated look that some have. The toned, lean, athletic type build is a winner in my book ALWAYS!!

(See the pics, THESE are the kind of bodies that drive me up the WALL!!)

The perfect physique for me is a guy that is toned and have good definition, especially in the ab area. Some bodybuilders get that big because of the use of illegal substances such as HGH and steroids.

Thanks for reminding me [us] that too many of these "huge" men got that way via chemical "intervention." When I have my moments of envy I find comfort in that knowledge....:o)

Yeah, Johnny, and you can usually tell who's using the chemicals by the strange side effects. Not wild about those. Natural is hot.
