Why did you start lifting?

I started for girls but I realized what it's really for. Myself.
>>
Same

I started lifting to get a better body so the average person would be impressed, especially girls.
It started well and made nice progress until I reached a point where I simply couldn't improve because of my body morphology, my poor genes and my low T.

I also realised along the way that lifting didn't change my awkwardness and social phobia.

So I gave up as I will never reach the body I want and that it wouldn't change the situation I'm in anyway.

>Why did you start lifting?

because you can't really avoid mirrors forever

Same, but then I just wasn't flexible enough and caused back pain. So back to doing it for girls.

>>35667579
You started for vain reasons so it's no surprise you out down the barbell so easily

Don't lift because you want status, lift because it's something every able bodied man down the ages has done, lift because it's traditional and in your blood and heritage. Lifting won't necessarily solve your problems, but not lifting will definitely create ones.

I started for men and it worked.

Sometimes I wish I was gay because it would make romance a much easier affair

I lifted at first to make up for my shyness

now I do it cause I want to look better, for myself. the more defined I get, the more confident I get. so it isn't quite for girls, it's more of a way for me to improve myself socially with the added benefit of getting stronger.

A little advice, you may think you are totally anonymous online, but there's always someone who can find you, and it could effect you in real life. In no way is that a threat or anything but, not thinking before posting stuff online can hurt you in real life. I've been online since I dialed into bbs. I've watched it grown and flex and change. I've seen bad things happen to good people because they thought they where safe. So I guess what I'm saying is, don't believe just because you think you have anonymity online that there can be no repercussions in real life.

Because there can.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

There's approximately 5% of the gay and bi male population that have an interest in romance.

I've had issues with low-energy and I'm using a few avenues to address it - one of which is eating more.

I started eating more and realised quickly that if I wanted the mass I added to be muscle I'd have to lift weight or exercise somehow.
>>
I started lifting because I was tired of being lazy and out of shape.

I now realize I lift because I am selfish and narcissistic.

I love seeing how much stronger and ain better shape I am than everyone else around me. I love seeing people drop out of the gym after a few weeks.

I love to see myself improve. Fuck everyone else, though.

I was bored in Afghanistan, then I did it for girls, then I stopped and got fat, now I lift out of hatred and habbit.

Like everyone else, for girls. And it worked too, gained more confidence and had sex with more women than I did before I lifted.

Now I do it for the strength gains and the ability to be the biggest/best looking guy in the room.

Been in a depression for what feels like a decade. My grandmother passed away last year and that made me reevaluate my life. I feel like I finally may be coming out of it. I've made a lot progress and since I've been feeling better about myself, I just naturally wanted to start eating better, and exercising. It surprised even me.
