I agree. At times like this I tend to think we (as in all of us lifters) are in the minority with the way we train and want to look. At around 200-220lbs I'm on the light side on this forum but amongst my co-workers I'm by far and away the largest guy there. So I tend to think it's one of things we have to take for granted seeing as we're not just fitness enthusiasts, but actually strength and mass lovers

Perhaps a more nuanced way of looking at things, such as the bodyfat level, may be a better form of looking at things. Perhaps to not penalise those who are naturally robust or those who work out moreso than the average gym rat.
