    I am a rather hairy individual. I mean, nothing freakish, but definitely above average by most standards.

    I've always shaved my torso area [chest, abs, nips (lol)], but I leave my arm/leg hair alone. I like to wear cutoff tee's to lift, but I have uber hairy pits so it's kind of silly looking when I do DB behind the head tricep lifts.

    QUESTION: How much (if any) of your body hair do you shave? Anyone shave their pits?

    I shave my abs, chest, nips, arms.

    I trim my legs with clippers, no attachments. I'd shave them but they take forever.

    I simply hate bodyhair. I did my pits once and absolutely hated it, so now I trim them with clipppers.

    Yeah, I have that Norelco Bodygroom and use that on my hair. Fucking love it.

    So did it suck having shaved pits? uncomfortable?

    I had a bodygroom, it worked pretty well but I'm back to using a razor.

    The pits were a terrible experience. First, it's a pain in the ass to shave them cleanly. Secondly, the stubble not only itches like crazy, but scratches your arms up too.

    I would never recommend shaving them, but trimming them short works.

    I'm not very hairy though I did regularly shave the calves in the summer. I did have to shave the pits for a photoshoot and that was a weird feeling. I agree with just trimming it.

    well when you walk around regularly in the kind of shape that wins BB competitions I think you have the right to do whatever you want as far as body-upkeep....


    but shaving your LEGS i mean come on.... how soon until you start using tampons in your asscrack to soak up asscrack sweat?


    I wear my ass crack sweat with pride, thanks very much. Of course it's your body though and you have the right to do whatever you want. I'm just foolin.

    I already said I don't shave my arms or legs so thou best check thine self before thee wrecks thine self.

    I'm asian and I have some chest hair and lots of pit hair. I fucking hate it.
    I shave my chest and trim my pit if I'm going to the beach. :o

    So i shaved my arms last night and it was the biggest pain in the ass. I was already commited after the first stroke. It feels kind of weird right now, but I like it. I have really hairy arms and legs :eek3:. Shaving armpits sounds weird and uncomfortable btw.

    I shave them, cuts down on smell like crazy. Stubble sucked the first time I did it, now it doesn't bother me anymore.

    Shave chest, abs, pits
