Good for you you have managed to atrophy your muscles and gain the look you were longing for. You have
correctly acknowledged your body type and set this specific strategy to "reduce muscle mass".
Though I know some feel that description is great because it means strength and muscle gain, it wasn't great on my body. I'm 5'1" with short arms (well short everything!) and I felt like one of those short, stocky male weight lifters that walk around with their arms all puffed out.
As to highlighted above, without aiming to disrespect you or anyone else --- without aiming to Criticize or judge anyone perspective on health, fitness and aesthetic.
I disagree with you that most people feel great about this description.
In fact the term "bulk" is used to mean various negative connotations, including the use of enhancing drug to quote the least! I have read many thread and I have not come across a post using "bulk" to mean strength, definition gain or to mean anything benefiting to health!
thread below, now closed, would give anyone an idea of what I am on about!!
I believe many who will read this post are VF users or lurkers. A quick search using the word in question will bring up
enough to support the fact that the word is not used to express positivity. That said we are all free to use whatever word
to describe strength, muscularity, vascularity, congested muscles, definitions, well developped quads, well developped
bulged biceps, well defined/developped triceps, well rounded deltoid you name it ....
To conclude my post I am puzzled reading all these debulk thread and post. There are tons of them posted in various way
I am wondering WHY most of interesting thread requesting tips, rotation, techniques etc.... deviate , 8 out of 10 times, to how us women would feel looking a certain way!!! --- Aesthetic. Who to blame MEDIA or my fellow female gender !!!!
What is more important to anyone embarking on or "maintaining"a healthy and fit lifestyle??? --- LOOK or HEALTH
No judgement intended here!
BTW, I like Jen sinkler picture below. Those legs look strong and beautiful. I also have no doubt that she has gained
many health benefit from various training protocol she has been through.
I would take any training to recruit and gain more muscle at anytime. I am not worried about looking like
hulk the incredible cause it will not happen! I need more and more metabolically active tissues, enough to outweigh
muscle wastage caused by aging process. I am taking action now rather than later so bring on the volume to
congest current muscles or "bulk" or the "fat" whatever anyone want to call it!
