Being a Clydesdale sounds fine with me. 6.3" 220lbs.
Since my late 40's I happen to manage those "love handles" pretty well. So, I like to consider myself an athletic built. It's all about diet, given regular sports activity.
5lbs up or down is rather normal. I can trim down to 210lbs, but then, things get a bit too jumpy. 230lbs is clearly not comfortable on the upper end.
I've always been in the 'heavyweight' category, ever since I did some wrestling as a 13 y/o. Used to be a competetive swimmer throughout my teenage years as well, obtained a Bronze Lifeguard certificate before I was 15 y/o. Spent about 15 years on skiers every Winter (luckily never broke a bone or anything else)
I am a gym person since 27 years, been initiated by a bunch of close friends who were smack-down Arnold fans aka bodybuilders. Much to my frustration, I was the wimpiest of all. I got good schooling, though.
Cycling might even be my oldest love. Starting with a tricycle before I was 2, I quickly advanced to 2 wheels with spokes.
Thanks to my Dad, who one day just took of the support wheels, saying: "Son, you're on your own now".
