    Why bust your ass to get strong when you can just put on a robot suit. Weight lifting will go the way of swording fighting (fencing) or horse riding (equestrian)... for a bunch of weirdos no one cares about. Discuss

    the reason we will continue to lift weights is presented clearly in that picture. No one wants to look super scrawny like that kid..

    Believe it or not, some people lift for their own health, which a Bionic suit won't help. :hsugh:

    If I wanted to get maintain/improve my health, lifting weights would be at the bottom of that list. I'd spend all week running, cycling, and shuttling.... Which incidentally, is how I wound up being 120 in the first place :o

    wouldn't it be hilarious if it ran out of battery and he was too weak to get out of it?
