    Talking My wife asked me to stop lifting?


    More of a rant than anything:
    So i'm going out to celebrate a buddies birthday tonight and I had to go deep in to the closet to find a decent shirt. EVERY single one looked like it would fit on my 12 year old. I'm not a huge guy but it was a little obvious that my recent gains have wrecked my XL wardrobe options. In the last (three weeks in to a Helladrol binge now) month i dropped 2% of my body fat and put on 7 pounds.
    My wife walked in and asked "what is wrong with your shirt" and I tried to accuse her of shrinking it in the laundry. She wasn't hearing any of that and said "you need to quit the weights and just do cardio". What woman doesn't want her hubby to be a little yoked? I asked her if she would prefer to be married to Homer Simpson and she replied "yes".

    I'm not looking forward to the next conversation after four weeks of SD. At the current rate i'll be 6'1" and 265 or 270 by the end of April. That should be perfect timing for pool side in Vegas. She is going to crap herself.

    Maybe she was just kidding around with you?. Maybe she wants you to get more lean. I don't know.

    Ah, yes, the "hunky man" all the other girls stare at, LOL....My old lady likes me being big, and I like it, too. When I go into her work all the coworkers usually have an ooh and an aah, and I hear about it later, so that's always nice. Of course me asking what the hot ones said is never smart

    Maybe she gets a lil jealous?

    And I def. would not take SouthernCharm's advice, LOL

    She can't say anything as far as i'm concerned. She has changed up her physical appearance (.)(.) to keep the eyes on her. Matter of fact.....her clothes didn't fit right either. Then again... I think she may have bought smaller shirts after the upgrades.

    And yes.....Helladrol for the WIN.

    putting wives/gf's in the closet for the duration of any cycle just might be good - you know, for cortisol control. i remember being on H-drol and my fuse just being short with my wife

    That's what I would put my money on. Women tend to offer indirect, subtle hints that as guys, we 95% of the time won't pick up on and in the end it's our fault because she has been "telling" us for a while now. But yeah, anyone can be big and fat. But being big and lean, no that's a hard thing to do. Take it as a personal challenge. Recomp yourself and then she what's up. You want to be able to show her that you have abs, veins and striations, not just tell her.

    Maybe it was an indirect compliment on how well you have been doing in the gym?. You are talking about a female here. They are certainly indirect. Us guys are straight and to the point. Chics get by with "hints" and feelings and girly crap like that. Just remember who you're talking to.

    You got to put those results into the bedroom brother. Maybe I've just been married a lot longer than you have (23 years) but ... during all that time my wife has seen me as a skinny surfer dude, a fat assed couch potato, and a hulking Visigoth ...

    And she would be the first to tell you that the Visigoth is the one that "has it going on".

    Especially as you get older - lifting heavy weights keeps your test levels up - along with your libido. The "cardio only" thing actually helps to erode test levels - I think that is pretty well established. My wife is very outgoing and funny - and she's a helluva lot smarter than I am ... hell, she even makes more money than I do now but in the bedroom - she is the submissive one and it used to get on my nerves when I was skinny surfer dude and fat couch potato.

    But to Visigoth - submissive is PERFECT ... Visigoth knows how to handle that situation and actually prefers it because Visigoth likes to be a hero in the sack and impress his girl.

    And my wife knows that if I don't get into the gym to lifty heavy weight - then Visigoth go "bye-bye" and back comes moody surfer dude or worse ... fat couch potato.
