    It seems everyone on this forum wants to squat 500, bench 350 and be 200/210/220. Just overall huge. I'm curious why?

    I'm not really aiming that high, but every time you meet a goal, you set a higher goal. It helps you to stay motivated and to keep working out hard.

    200/210/220 isn't huge unless you are rather short

    Whatever, you guys are getting caught up in the random numbers I spit out. It's a simple question: why do you want to be big? What are the pros? Why do you keep with it once you've reached a point where everyone around you is impressed?

    Because wether anyone here wants to admit it or not this shit is our hobby and we're obsessed with it. Everyone I know gives me shit for going to the gym all the time when they're out drinking or partying or whatever. You see gains, you like it and you keep at it.

    Isn't this common sense? That's like saying why do you want to be rich, or why do you want to be powerful, or why do you want to be intelligent.

    I'm just as obsessed as you. I'm just curious why? I think I'm having a :blackjesus: moment.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating skinny/fat. But why be 250 and huge, instead of 190 and lean?

    i'd be happy getting those numbers at 180 ;o


    I have no intentions of going to 200, at 5'11.5...interested in strength not size.

    everybody got different goals, maybe they like the way they look while at that weight, maybe its more aestheticly pleasing to them then a smaller number. Maybe its their hobby and size just comes with it.

    That's easy. 155 of LBM + 85 lbs fat = success!

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but if you aren't then :)

    I'm dead serious. I typed out this emo-like response that you'd make fun of me for, so instead I deleted it and will say thanks.
