    Although I'm not a bully;to be honest big strong guys don't get triffled with.Look at the pic in Diesel's avatar,would you honestly try to get in the face of someone that big

    "I like the way it looks and to explore my physical potential"

    Sounds like a sexual innuendo to me... "it" looks good and to expore my physical whatever... hmmm. Canes, you should clean it up a bit.

    My goal is to be a bit above your average Jane, and get looks from everyone everywhere I go! I enjoy being strong, too... I feel more powerful as a woman..... I love the results I get physically and mentally!

    i love it because its so individual. i depend on no one but myself to acheive my goals. i am definately not a team player. i wont fail myself. plus, its a great outlet for all the aggression i seem to have been plagued with all my life. and i love the way it makes me look. i could go on and on, but i will spare you all the drama!

    I love the way I feel. I love the looks I get from other people. Above all, I love the confidence it provides and the outlet it gives me on even the worst of days.....

    I agree with ya BigKev...weight training is completely individual. I like relying on myself to get things done. I feel like I owe it to me to constantly be working to improve, be it physically or mentally.

    I lift because: Love to look above average - where people can tell I push beyond my limits. It brings me complete confidence in myself. (looking good naked counts too!) :-)

    Oh my GOD! I can't believe that nobody has said this yet--so let me be the first to stoop to that level:

    I do it to increase my chances of getting laid!

    Like Freud said, sex is, ultimately, the driving force behind everything!

    1) Look better (refer to above mentioned reason)
    2) Improve confidence
    3) Get respect in social and business environment
    4) Sense of achievement / personal pride in accomplishing goals.

    to achieve the limits the human body can reach, to show all those people who doubted me my whole life that i can stick to something and give it my all, sure theres always the "makes me look good and helps me pick up chicks" factor but when you are as ugly as me you generally lack the latter of the two

    NA even if it is from me, but remember I have a good eye for these things , you are a rather handsome young man, and will one day attract a very pretty wife. Hang in there kid :

    My I be the first to say I dont "enjoy working out", it's nothing but pain sweat and tears.

    No I do enjoy pushing myself, have a major life goal, and one day the physic that comes along with it.

    I BB because I've always had, and a majority of the time still do, a negative self image of myself. I want to improve that image, i want to achieve my biggest life long dreams. I could care less what the girls think, i do it for my own self satisfaction.

    I believe if you do it for any other reason than YOU, then you will never truly be successful.

    I just like the way it feels both physically and mentally. It's also instant gratification - I know I've done something really good for my body after a tough workout. I can literally see it physically and mentally it helps clear the mind, boost self-esteem and well-being!
