There are several large guys I work with. 2 engineers, a marketing person and a machinest.
My boss is 6', 210lbs. My other boss is 6', 190lbs. One of my co workers is 5'7, 225lbs. Although we do work at a fitness equipment/powerlifting store
6'4, 275-280lbs. I'm a third grade teacher.
Big hiatus, deciding on new goals...

*Bulking till January 1st*
i've seen some big guys at my gym who work ups/dhl and pest control. as for me im 5'10 weighing 190 lbs. and i work in a construction office.
I'm not that huge, but I do economic development for a municipality. I certainly look pretty in shape and big to most people in my usual office attire of khaki's and a polo shirt, though.
Most of my big powerlifter friends are grad students, but I do have some out in the real world. One of them is about 5'8, 270 lbs (a freaking bowling ball) and he teaches pre-school. Another powerlfiter friend is a State Trooper and now works SWAT team (he's about 6'5 and has freakish grip strength). Another (5'9, almost 300lbs) is a professor of English and benches 700 lbs. One is a statistics professor (5'7, 220lbs, squats 700lbs and deadlifts over 660, and benches >415 raw). Another one (~5'9, 240lbs) is a computer programmer who works for Microsoft.
So as you can see, powerlifters are pretty much like anyone else, except bigger and stronger.
Seriously though, I didn't train during law school. I got into it toward the very end. A hard-training friend of mine did go through lawschool in Michigan though, while maintaining his training. He just skipped the drinking and hanging out and got in his 3 or 4 training sessions a week as therapy. It's definitely doable.

Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

I am a utility linemen. Its probably funny seeing a 6'3 300 + pound man climbing utility poles and stuff. Hell at my biggest I was 375 and like a ninja scurring up those things. Hard on the knees though so I mostly use my ladder now or just drive my bucket truck through peoples yards.
