Body Builder Shape = no cycling clothes for Dion
I've been lifting weights and cross training for nearly 16 years. I was a competetive body builder at one point, trained in MMA - but my love for cycling, BMX and on/off road motorcycles has always been my passion. I'm built like a body builder and nothing is right.
Baggy shorts are huge in the waist, but tight in the butt (I have a bubble butt).
3XL jerseys are tight up top and loose on the bottom; short sleeved jerseys nearly cut off circulation around my biceps. Oh, and in the real world, I wear XL. Try a XL jersey and I might as well be taking my blood pressure with that jersey!
It's like the thigh-to-waist/shoulder-to-waist ratio doesn't work with cycling clothing for people of my shape. I don't know if I'm alone in this... I doubt it.
I like training and my body is just this way... I look at a weight and I grow. I don't like loose fitting cycling wear because I don't like flapping in the wind - but at this point I just don't know anymore.
