I cannot find any greater satisfaction in life than building my body that God or whatever life forces out there have given me. There is no greater peace knowing that its all in my hands. Victory or defeat depends on my action. To enjoy the fruits of this labour with my loved ones makes it all the better as I go through the life experience of existence.
Why do you lift?
I got into really solid shape playing sports in high school and college and can't imagine allowing myself to get weaker. It kicks ass to have a body that won't let me down when I throw new challenges at it.
If you're in it to impress people, you're setting yourself up for disappointment.
I lift so I can develop a life of self-mastery and discipline.
After correcting my fashion perspective, it is the latest major thing I did for females, starting to lift. However, I stayed in for endorphines.
Don't worry Elliot, I'm going to score for both of us bruh.
i lift to feel superior to individuals out of shape, to maybe one day get The Poo Tang, and to look good (to others)
and i don't pretend there's a deep meaning to lifting, because there is none
You could always join the military or move to a country like Israel where both men and women serve in the IDF.
to be as strong as my father was when I was 10
Because of it, I'm off all my medications and only visit the doctor once a year now just for a yearly check-up instead of every three months to follow-up on medications. Not to mention, it makes me feel so good. I never felt so good in my entire life.
So I'm not a fat neckbeard getting out of my neckbearded car.
I figured I'd get this response. 0 desire to join the US military, just doesn't seem the same as antiquity. I mean yeah it's all probably overly romanticized but eh let a man dream.
So I can post shitty quotes from dead people on /fit/.
Initially - to bump up my TDEE because I'm a former fatty and love to eat.
Then I realize that I've got a nice body and started to mire myself all the time, so I keep lifting to continue look good.
I wanted to say that I lift for grills but my personal experience showing that no lifting will give you even a kiss, not even a gf, and I got tired of empty mires that end nowhere.
>tfw crooked teeth and small jaw
Why even lift?
it helps with my anxiety
kind of a pain to have to work out every fucking morning so that i dont get anxiety when in class or something, but theres not much i can do. ive been dealt these cards, might as well call each bluff i see since i have nothing to lose.
Had this as my desktop wallpaper for a few months. I cant not lift after reading this.
all my life since i was born till the day i day, i am average. mediocre. i had a mediocre upbringing, went to a mediocre school, a mediocre university, got mediocre grades, ill get a mediocre job, retire at a mediocre age,die at a mediocre age.
i just want one thing. just one thing where i can excel. be great. be aweinspiring
I lift so that I can get a qtpi gf who loves me, loves my body, wants to bang all the time, and looks fantastic and is moderately intelligent.
He also had genius level abilities in leading men, armies, and military tactics. He was also skilled at integrating multiple cultures like Persians and Greeks into one powerful army although he eventually misplayed his hand there
Was driving home from a hard ass fuck final, literally wanted to cry and just give up. As I was driving a cop car passed and I wanted to become a cop but then I thought to myself how can I have a college degree and just be a cop?
When I finally got home it hit me. I want to be in SWAT, then I said I need to be stronger. So I took lifting more seriously and in 2 months of serious measuring my macros Im almost at 2pl8 squat and 3pl8 deadlift.
I fucking want this, I want to be in SWAT. I could care less about what grades I get in class, I just go to school for the gym, never has anything been so clear
And Im going to fucking do it.
I lift because it feels fucking amazing. And I want to push myself beyond my limits and be stronger than I've ever been before.
The aesthetic benefits are definitely pleasing, but I absolutely lI've just overall being stronger. Kinda like in vidya when you feel great when you level up stats, it's the same feeling but times 10 when increasing lifts. Yeah I wanna get big, hopefully that comes once I start lifting heavier, but I really wanna just get strong as a motherfucker.
i lift to forget about my ex who crushed me. i refuse to ever let myself feel emotional pain again i'd rather be in so much pain from lifting i cant move than to be some sad ass clown who cant move on with his life.
Because I wanna do cool shit with my body. I wanna be able to throw someone who wants to fight me, I want to be able to pick up a girl and put her on my shoulders, I want to be able to be a human flag, and I want people to view me as an upstanding and high value individual even though I'm anything but.
>I want to be able to pick up a girl and put her on my shoulders
I've calculated that for my personal preference in women (skinny, bikini bridge minimum) I'll need to be able to OHP 70 something KG, I'm at 40 now, so technically I'm about 6 months to a year from that goal max.
I want to look better, which is the obvious one.
Its something to do as a NEET aside from fap and vidya and I get off on the though of being stronger than most men,
It's a good stress reliever too.
To be at my best when Ragnarok comes desu senpai arigato gozaimus. Also it gets me more pussy and coworkers defer to me when I get rowdy.
>It never fails to cheer me up when I see my body in the mirror
>I have naturally chubby cheeks and keeping my diet in check and working out consistently allow me to minimize the fat in my face.
>Gives me something to do
>Allows me to do better in jiujitsu even though I really shouldn't be relying on my strength
given the current political and socio economic tides i want to be in shape for when Jesus Christ and Imam Mahdi come to fight the anti christ. Not saying it's going to happen in our life time but i want to be fit and prepared in case it does happen and also to survive the economic collapses/wars that will precede such an event.
Both Muslims and Christians agree that we're resurrected in our bodies on Judgement Day.
I want to look juicy as fuark for all eternity.
All I need is someone to kill me before I'm 30.
Lol i guess but the last thing ill be thinking about is my gains as opposed to y'know being judged by the lord. Its a really heavy thought bro, just you, your sins/good deeds, and the creator
I want to feel sexy and good in my body, and get stronger.
Being more muscular, fitter and taller than most women makes me feel superior. I just feel fucking amazing and powerful. Women are usually weak and bitchy and knowing that I've done everything in order to do my best despite my sex and biological limits set by it, gives me such boost in basically everything. I've always been a sort of a tomboy and lifting and doing other masculine shit is what makes me the closest I can get to be a man.
