    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 6'3@ 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?

    This is the most muddled question Ive ever heard.

    The answer to your question is, there is no answer. If the dude was a peaceful teddy bear at 200 hes likely to be a teddy bear at 265 or whatever.

    Its all about the individuals attitude. Lean muscle does not necassarily = a new mean streak.

    Yeah but the more yoked you get the less inclined you are to take peoples shit. I'm not saying you have to be an dick to people but increased confidence in yourself never hurts.

    Of course some people take it too far and are assholes because they know they can be.

    I know its muddled.
    Essentially, I know guys who are on major amounts of test year round and are the nicest guys out there. Its just unfortunate that once size plays a factor, they assume rrage instead of the fact that the guy is 275 pounds and really doesnt want to take shit from anyone.

    Yeah same here, except drunk morons who I am usually pretty patient with.

    Actually skinny wannabe toughguy douchebags are usually much bigger assholes than jacked niggas I know.

    Im about 55lbs short of 275 but I can attest to this as well. Having been bean pole skinny at 6'3" 155lbs for years its definately true that I dont get nearly as much shit @ 220lbs.

    Maybe its because I'm a bouncer so I can't afford to get punked out like a bitch. Only really ever had one guy seriously try to fight me though, which ended up badly for him.

    I don't ever "rage" on people though.
