    i wont lie, i do it for the bitches, they love a tall (me 6'5) and hard body jock. i mean yeah its also cool about the fear part from others, liek they are intimidated of you and wont talk shit or do something they would do to someone smaller. part of it is playing college ball too, but i didnt have to get really big for it.

    mainly working out for the hoes.

    1. I do because I used to be the small scrawny kid in hs, now when I see people that I used to know the look of disbelief makes it all worth it.
    2. Its become a hobby and it makes me feel good to see what I enjoy doing has a profound effect on how I look. Im very happy with the way I look.

    I like to be strong as well, I'm not too worried about actual numbers tho, it's just another thing for guys on an internet board to be all gay about :dunno:

    No, it has nothing to do with an internet board or bragging to your friends. It's about setting PR's, whatever they may be. It gives one a feeling of satisfaction and motivation to break them over and over again. It's about challenging yourself to do what you haven't done before. There's no better feeling than taking a bunch of weight and moving it around in the gym. Fuck what other people think, fuck if they lift more than you. Lift more than you yourself did last time or ever have before.

    Self-image... instead of being a big fattay in my youth, I want to be a rock of muscle in my young adulthood.

    I was getting flabby and weak.

    I work out because I want to look better (for myself, not bitches). I work out because I want to be able to run fast and pick up heavy stuff.

    when i started (seems so long ago now), it was because i weighed 340lbs and nfinally decided i was sick of it. I continue to do it because frankly, I'm addicted to it. I love the way I feel after a good workout, and if Idon't worikout, I just feel off.

    At one point, it was solely to get big enough that most people in any room i walked into were intimadated. As I got bigger and stronger I realized that would never happen without "help". As I got older I got less petty and now I do it for the rush I get from having a good work-out. I don't really know how to explain it because I do not compete with anyone, I just lift for me. I do have one other prime motivator, I do it to relieve the frustrations that my co-workers cause so that I don't hurt them and lose my job.
