    Go. I want to see everyone's motivations. I have stopped working out for a couple months now, I need to get back into it.

    So I don't have to post threads on the internet asking why other people work out so that I can drag my lazy ass to the gym.

    i don't really know why, but ever since HS football training, I've loved lifting. I hadn't lifted for almost 10 years after school, never realized how much I enjoyed it and how much I missed it since starting again 18 months ago.

    I hope to never stop again.

    Being short, you can't be skinny as well, otherwise you will constantly get pushed around

    there was a point in my life my motivation was so strong I woke up 5 am MWF for 2 years straight to go workout, even in the winters. many times i wanted to sleep in but i made myself wake up. it was awesome to see other ppl working out even at 4 am. crazy.

    I used to print and read so many t-mag articles, I used to do the calorie math and macronutrient intake calculations. :rofl: crazy
