Got into a discussion at work today related to training, weight gain and rage. Here is the story... Do you believe that someone who goes from 200lbs to 250lbs cut, has a significant influence on his behavior? Could this behavior be mistaken for rrage? Guy at my friends martial arts club is 7th degree (whatever) and 6'[email protected] 265lbs. Most of the club recently believe he is becoming a bigger asshole because of hormone use. I've debated the situation by saying, he is probably full of himself (7th degree and all) and his size is making him more comfortable with being an asshole. If you were an asshole at 200lbs, your gonna be a BIGGER asshole at 265lbs because you just added 65lbs of ASSHOLE to someones frame. Here is a similar situation... 2 (200lb) guys are in a heated arguement, both the same size, one being regular computer worker, other being 7th degree shit kicker w/attitude. It goes without saying that if egos come into play, the MA guy will not back down and be more argumentative. BUT, the subject of hormone abuse will never come into play because both are still less than 200lbs. Thoughts?
