    What brought you into the Gym?






    We all have something in common-love for BB abd Db- but we may have different reasons/goals to achieve.

    Why do you sweat your butt off in the gym?

    What doyou train for?

    For me it was standing in front of the mirror and seeing my gut. I finally had enough and joined a gym and started eating right. I lost 12 pounds in 9 weeks and have definition where there was none before. Now to just keep building up and staying fit.

    It was a combination of several things. For the most part, I was embarrased to take my shirt off at the beach because I was so skinny. So I started working out in order to look and feel better. Now I can walk around shirtless and STRUT.

    I gained 30 pounds in the two years of college right after high school. The course was very intense and I basically lived at the school eating from the grease pit (cafeteria). Joined a gym as soon as I graduated. Lost the 30 ponds in 12-18 months. Been going fairly steady ever since. Really pouring it on over the last 14-18 months and am in the best shape I've ever been!!!

    I have a 9 to 5 desk job and did not want to see my body deterirate (sp?). I lifted on and off in college but am hooked now and much more dedicated. And like Mule am trying to overcompensate for a small penis.

    I had to check other..........

    It’s a way for me to get rid of aggression!

    If I didn’t beat the Hell out of myself in the gym I would probably kill all the stupid people I am forced to deal with!


    Have a nice day!!!

    To refuse to learn anything that could prove beneficial to yourself is a working definition of stupid!

    High-intensity training is going all-out, not almost all out. It is taking one set to one's absolute limit, not almost to the limit. It is using whatever equipment’s available. It is not the words of two or three men, but a commitment to work as hard as possible while in the gym without socializing, resting excessively between sets, or falling prey to the 'this isn't going to work so I'll copy the star' attitude"

    Back in '85 was commuting 30 miles up and down 101. Coming home was a bitch. Stopping at the gym first was both sane and safe for me as when I got out of the gym after 7pm the commute was so much less stressful. I don't think that would be true today, though.

    Was fat so I looked into loosing weight. Diet and Cardio was my first thoughts. Found a site called FreeTrainers, and reading the forums made me decide I would like to have a huge ripped body and get all the women. That and I have a small penis too.

    Its okay Mule *pats mule on the back*

    We all knew you did

    But hey, its not how long the Mules legs are but how much it can carry, right everyone?

    Oh, began lifting because I wanted to be in good shape - because its fun to be one of the few people around that is in shape, because its a good stress reliever, because its a great form of self discipline, because I dont want to die of a heart attack at age 40 while sitting on a couch letting grease from a bit fat burger drip on my bitch tits... sorry, getting carried away there.

    I was tired of being tired. I was tired of being flabby. I was tired of looking like everyother SOB on the street. There are many thing in life I can not control but, I can control my physique.
    Striving everyday to getting Bigger, Better, and Better Looking. The later is a struggle.

    I saw a full length photo of "The Icon" (Arnold Scwarz.), and I decided that I would devote myself to looking exactly like that. Two years later, I am within inches of his competition size and weight. We just happen to be the same height and have the same body structure. One more year and I will match him!! Believe it or not I have only used Universal's Animal Stak and Lava. And never any juice, although I have been extremely tempted!!

    Well, I think it had to do with me being overweight.. and not feeling happy with my physical appearance. So I started going to the gym at my apartment, then when I was old enough, joined a gym.

    Always wanted to join the gym, but never had the motivation until I decided to apply for the fire dept. When I heard about the CPAT (physical test) I made a bee line for the gym.

    According to this poll most of us are hitting the iron to have a better physical appearance and just to be in shape/happy.

    Still the Pro BB has no votes so far...

    What I like about his BB site is that is not so hard-core from a BB standpoint , compared with others sites which are proned towards hard-core, fanatic BB training or Pro BB...

    Not that I have anything against Pro BB, but this is not my primary goal in life as I see BB as a form of improving one's health ,appearance or personal ego.

    Still surprised that the" get women's attetntion box" didn't score higher.. Maybe if there were two choices this alternative would score higher...
    The more I know , the more my fear augment!

    Life has three roads: one straight, one wrong, and the last which you take!

    You'll LOVE this one....I started working out cuz I ran up some stairs, got to the top, stopped, and my butt kept moving!!!!!! Things were going south FAST, only weighed in at 102lbs, but had 20%BF. Loose arms, ect...Was thirty-nine. Now, I look great, better than most of the 20 yr old girls at the gym and I'm strong, and I love the iron!
