    What keeps you guys going?

    Whats your motivation?Not everyone here is a Pro BB,and many don't compete.So I was wondering what pushes you guys.I've always been a small guy graduated at 5'6 135pds.I finally grew some and now at 189 5ft.11 but I still see that little guy when I look in the mirror.Weird huh!But I do like it because I'm doing what most are to lazy to do(eat right and exercise).Kinda in a weird mood tonight,anyways could be a cool thread.

    When you eat right and execcise for years it becomes your rutine. IMO we all are a little bit narcissoide.

    at first for me lifting was a way to relieve stress, improve my body, and organize my life. what started as goals to 1.) lose some fat 2.) put on some mass and 3.) look good has now evolved into a more of an awareness for me. sure going to the gym is part of my routine, and juice is also present, but i feel so at ease and content after a great workout nowadays. almost equivalent to walking up the 18th hole and only needing par to break even (if you're pickin up what im puttin down). working out and the benefits it carries certainly help me regain focus at times when i really don't feel motivated, but there is more to it than that for me. maybe i read too many books about zen, but i feel like i understand myself better in the gym than any place else because of the great introspective nature that lifting carries.

    Well, coming from being overweight - my motivation lies in EVERY picture taken of me over the past 5yrs considering how over-weight I was.

    Another thing, of course, which helps is when friends who haven't seen ya in a while comment on how good ya look - or how ripped - or how in shape... it really helps to give me an extra bump for the day.

    Then there's juice - ya really CAN'T stop while running a cycle...Must..go...to...gym... but it'll be interesting to see how I react once the cycle is over. Maybe lesson my intensity/weight/reps/etc and get back in to a toning phase.

    So I just keep on keep'n on...

    hate to admit it, but for all my purported logical thought, intelligence and rational thinking that i'd like to think i possess, most every rep is for a girl....she was there for my 135 bench, 185, 225, 275, 315 and have every reason to believe she'll be there for 365. Pathetic, I know, but with the anonymity of the net comes either pure honesty or pure bullshit, I've chosen the former here at AR, so laugh away.
