    Big and shredded is tricky, because you have tobe strict with ur diet. I like to eat big during 4-6 week gymblast. Then after i like to have the odd weekend drink too. I always carry fewextra pounds

    In all seriousness, I don't think there is anything wrong with your body, I've always liked the big, bulky look (i.e carrying a little extra bf but not so much you are actually 'fat').

    But imo the ripped look is better, maybe carry on bulking for another month or two and the cut for Summer. That's what a lot of people on these forums seem to do

    IN fact i prefer to carry size and a bit of extra weight because im doing freestyle wrestling too and it helps.
    I hate cutting for the beach etc because i hate xutting out carbs

    I would say in between actually. Fairly lean but not shredded- doesn't look good on most people, but neither does looking fat. Lean enough to have some ab definition and muscle definition un-tensed but certainly not "shredded" where you can see all the muscle striations and have veins popping out everywhere, that looks terrible IMO.
