    I love how "Brad Pitt in Fight Club" is always brought up as a reference.

    90% of girls will pick that body type because Brad Pitt looks good no matter what body type he has.

    That's true, what about him in Troy? He looks like he has a little mass there

    I like a very small amount of muscle. If they stray into any level of bulkiness I'm not interested!

    Don't go by what girls may say on an internet forum. What I would say is that you will get more attention and notice from both men and women if you have muscles. If you can use that to your advantage,if you have the confidence to back it up, then it will help you get laid.

    Girls are turned on by confidence and many guys feel more confident from building their bodies at the gym,which partly explains why many men notice they aren't invisable to girls any more. There is also the primal urge females have towards wanting strong fit healthy looking men.

    However in some ways muscles are like breasts, in that theres a point where it looks over the top and a bit freaky. There are a small pool of men I expect that like women with huge surgically enhanced breasts, and the same goes for women who like freakishly large men who have used large amounts of chemical enhancement to get big.

    But in my view, a good balanced bodybuilding programme will only help the majority of men with women. It won't necesscarily turn you into a stud but it is another string to the bow so to speak. As women aren't quite as visual as men,they appreciate a nice body but there has to be feelings and emotion to really get the juices flowing. Just look at porn, while men vastly outnumber women into buying visual porn, in terms of literotica, that is much more popular with women.

    No pitt is a movie star thats why he gets the girls , I have seen pics of him away from the movie set and in my view he is about an 8. There are many better looking guys than him. You would be amazed what personal trainers and gay male fashion advisors probably do to move someone from an 8 to a 10. Pitt is actually quite an average joe in my opinion.

    A great example of a guy who would be swimming in gash whatever his occupation, is David Beckham. Now that is a handsome man in my opinion. If he was a builder rather than a footballer he'd still be a heart breaker.

    1. Brad pitt in fight club= lean not particulary muscular
    2. Why do so many people bum that zyzz idiot (second pic)
    3. Lou ferrigno is the shizz (last pic)

    I dont know about you but i work out for me not girls if they like it that is a good by-product but otherwise i couldnt care what they think.
    Zyzz is pure aesthetitcs :awesome:

    tbh I couldn't think of a better example of an ecto with about 1-2 years work as that sort of intermediate stage

    but yeah the last point, I was just testing the water of the average frigid TSR user lol, I train for myself and to help with sports and give me greater strength, speed and power, not for girls ffs

    Ooooft. I wouldn't say no to Brad Pitt in Fight Club. Any of those others though are what I'd personally classify as too far. I think it's also about what appearance implies about personality; for instance, I think the second guy looks like he'd be a tad vain, right down to the macho pose, and that's unattractive.
    Yeah because taking pride in your appearance is a bad thing compared to just letting yourself go is it? And as for too far, Pitt had to work hard to keep to 6% bodyfat in fight club and look like a skinny ******* by not eating at all and doing **** loads of cardio so all you've done is display your ignorance, well done :top:

    1 - Lush. Type of guy I'd swoon for.

    2 - Very assymetrical and hisface is grotesque. I have seen him around on the net a fair bit and his arse is MASSIVE. I did see a red haired version of him. Beats him like a drum.

    The rest - Jersey Shore vibes....no thanks


    Don't flame me...those are my honest opinions.

    1. Mmmm i like that bod

    2. Too far

    3 onwards - EW
    Right so basically you three like 9 stone men men who are as about as weak as 13 year olds, nice, Pitt barely has any muscle in fight club and looks borderline anorexic

    Do you like shy guys too?

    Look: some girls like skinny, some like muscly, some like chubby.

    As a general rule, the two most popular looks for guys among girls are:

    a) tall with broad shoulders and strongish looking arms, but without too much definition. Chest hair is a maybe, little bit of a stomach perhaps. Typical alpha male "rugby player" look.

    b) a pretty boy, slim with a 6 pack but no real muscle mass. Like a toned down version of Brad Pitt as seen above. Typical David Beckham style "football player" look.


    Almost all girls will find one of these two options attractive.

    I would imagine that most are offput by bodybuillders in the competative state, primarily becuase they are by deffiniton narrcasistic.

    I'm a muscluar man, and a usually reffered to as manly, gruff sort of thing and never have a shortage of ladies interested. But this may also be down to the fact I have quite a welcoming personality and am confident in myself and wouldn't look to change for anyone.

    I honestly belive as people get older that personality becomes more important than looks to most.

    It isn't about being muscular per-se, but about everything, if your naturally a big athletic bloke you are less inclined to be obsessed with muscle mass and vanity etc which girls seem to like.

    I don't mind guys that are a bit muscular, if a guy likes to go to the gym and keep himself fit and healthy but overly muscular guys are not attractive at all

    Do you know what borderline anorexic actually looks like? Lol, he looks pretty fit to me, not weak at all. Whether you think so or not, that type of body is my preference. Why does it seem to annoy you?
