I'm looking for a word or phrase in arabic to describe someone who is sturdily built for my story.
Would be grateful for any suggestions. :)

Woo Hoo to LittleLee! You know more than you think!

Shadeed would be the first word I would think of - I'm pretty sure it translates directly to "Sturdy". Can't think of any others at the mo - but may get enthusiastic and check my dictionary later on.
