I'm having a deuce of a time shopping for shirts

I'm having a REAL tough time shopping for shirts these days. And it's not just me saying this - my wife's been complaining as well. She often tells me that it's next to impossible to shop for shirts for me without having me there in person as well. She says that she can buy the right size, the right colors, make, everything - but more often than not, if I'm not actually trying the shirt out before I buy it, I'll complain that it's too tight, and won't be able to wear it.

And by "too tight", I mean that it fits a bit too snugly around the shoulders - so I feel like I'm about to rip the shirt apart when I raise my arms up. That same logic applies for coats and jackets as well. My wife tells me I've gained some mass around the shoulders recently, and I can believe it given the exercises I've been practicing.

Funny thing is, a while back I used to wear size XL shirts - but as of late, I've started to find some of those to be "too tight" as well. Problem is, the next size up fits OK around the shoulders, but ends up looking a bit baggier than it should around the waist - but thats what I have to live with if I choose to buy "off the rack" clothing.

And why am I telling you this?

Well, pretty much to warn you that YOU too may have difficulty purchasing shirts that fit right once you start following an exercise routine similar to what I do. Remember that ALL I do is the exercises I teach you in Fast and Furious Fitness. I do NOT lift weights, play sports professionally  or do manual labor - these are all activities you'd associate with broad and powerful shoulders, but I'm not doing any of them.

So I'll warn you in advance - if you're the type that shops once a year and expects your clothes to fit you correctly the entire year, then you probably don't want to mess around with the exercises that I advocate. If your worried that a constantly expanding shoulder size, or broad, powerful back muscles will make it tougher for you to shop for clothes, well, you've been warned ahead of time.

Of course, if your the rare breed that doesn't mind having a set of broad shoulders that are every bit as strong as they look - and continue to get stronger as you keep training - then you'd be well advised to grab a copy of Fast and Furious Fitness TODAY. But if you do so, expect to have to keep buying new shirts on a regular basis. Yes, the exercises contained within ARE that powerful - do them as I tell you to - and you'll be building muscle on your entire body like you never have before, while also melting off fat at a record rate. 

On another note, we did end up buying an "off the rack" coat which seems to fit ok for the time being. The function's still a few months away though - so all bets on the coat fitting right at that point are off. You could also look upon it as a sort of "goal" to achieve; increase your shoulder width so much that you have to buy new shirts every so often.

Now that's an interesting goal to aim for - aim to outgrow your shirts! My wife doesn't think much of it, but then again, she's the one shopping for me (and the one who gets to have me try on each and everything before she buys; NOT the easiest of tasks) - so I can't say I blame her.

So, thats the wisdom (or warning) for the day. Be back tomorrow with more!

Best regards,
