>>35520071 Can you really say you have the same excitement and mental pump about the gym? After my first two years lifting, it stopped becoming this big manly battle and became more of what it actually was: something I did out of habit to not look like shit and not age like shit. I rarely talk about the gym unless asked, because I know no one wants to hear the shit. No one cares about your gains except you. Lift for yourself. Dont compare yourself to others. Just do it for you own well-being. And if after lifting for 4 years you do still feel the same mental intensity and passion for the gym, I envy you. For this is long since gone for me.
>>35520224 over 3 years lifting here as well and i know your feel bro. after the 2nd year i didn't really care anymore and now i just lift cause i've put too much time into it to give up at this point. i don't really enjoy it much anymore but i feel like its something i have to do. i'm really humble and don't care much for talking about the gym when people bring it up to me
>>35520289 If you spend your life looking in despair at what others achieve while neglecting what you have achieved, you will live an unhappy life. That's what we're getting at. I'm content with going to the gym just so I dont look like shit and dont age like shit. Im strong enough to toss my gf around in bed, and to carry my sister on my shoulders effortlessly. I'm strong enough for it to be fun for myself and those around me, basically. And I look far better than any normie. Who gives a shit if I cant bench 4 plate or if I dont have visible abs year round? No one except me. So no reason to get hung up on it. In the gym, im nothing special to look at. Outside the gym it's instantly clear that I exercise and take care of myself, and the confidence gained from taking such care of myself does volumes more for me than lifting itself ever can.
>>35520224 Fresh off the boat, from reddit, kid? heh I remember when I was just like you. Braindead. Lemme give you a tip so you can make it in this cyber sanctuary: never make jokes like that. You got no reputation here, you got no name, you got jackshit here. It's survival of the fittest and you ain't gonna survive long on 4chan by saying stupid jokes that your little hugbox cuntsucking reddit friends would upboat. None of that here. You don't upboat. You don't downboat. This ain't reddit, kid. This is 4chan. We have REAL intellectual discussion, something I don't think you're all that familiar with. You don't like it, you can hit the bricks on over to imgur, you daily show watching son of a bitch. I hope you don't tho. I hope you stay here and learn our ways. Things are different here, unlike any other place that the light of internet pop culture reaches. You can be anything here. Me ? heh, I'm a judge.. this place.... this place has a lot to offer... heh you'll see, kid . . . .that is if you can handle it...
I just realized today that I'll never be happy with myself strenght wise. I've been going to the gym for abt 3 years, fucked around the first two not following a proper program or sticking to my diet. Had some issues and got fat and lazy, had a 6 month break from the gym.
A year ago I started to get serious with my training, I cut from 253lbs to 190, been doing modified reg parks 5x5 to get myself comfortable with the big four etc. Focused on form.
Starting to look pretty good since I've lost weight, maybe a bit skinny since I'm a 6'3" lanklet. But all my lifts are absolute shit like super novice tier, and I'm scared I'll always be a weakling faggot.
I've been watching a lot of OLY -guys and mire their strenght but I just can't see me getting there. Tfw you'll never be Klokov.
