    That's a good question. I really have no idea. I think, in a way, I believed that if I became HUGE, which I am currently working on then this HUGENESS would be all mine. It would be something 100% pure that's mine and can't be taken away. I mean, this sounds weird, but like if you have a very nice car, and it belongs to you, well that can be taken away, same with a house, other phsyical belongings. But your muscle, your hugeness, is all yours!!!



    Sound weird huh? I want something that will be all mine, and something that I can say "I have."

    i think what started me out was back when i was a little skinny kid seeing all the jacked guys at the beach with their huge muscles and thinking that i would love to be big like that. then over the years as i increased the intensity of my workouts and started to see my body transforming and my muscles growing and growing it just became a part of who i am. now i think i am driven by the results i see every day in myself and the realization that i have surpassed my goal and have no intention of stopping any time soon

    haha lol GS... Personally the impression you give off. I don't like to fight if I don't need to. Being big saves you from even having to say a word most times people just walk away. So I guess to intimidate would be one thing. Terinox hit the other on the head. Its a personal goal your tryin to achieve. and GS well... Speak for yourself! haha.

    It started for me when I was a kid ,I was fat and short and got picked on alot , I went from fat ,5' 1 to 6' over the summer when I came back to school no one knew me ,but I still knew them and I got them one by one ,after that no one gave me a hard time . I guess now I want it to just feel good walking down the beach with my shirt off , I dont guess it is to get laid ,I have a very hot girl and will be getting hooked up in the spring !

    very interesting.. I think i may just agree with you on that.
    I was a fairly small kid, not short, but skinny.

    i look at BIG KEV pics and i say dam i wish i could look like that j/k j/k
    what makes me want to be big is for myself and no one else ,i feel being big has its advantages and disadvantages,but i love lifting ,i wish i only started earlier when my hormones were raging,my dad was a lifter he tried getting me into it when i was 13-15 but i was a couch potatoe,video game freak but than i realized shit IM FUCKING FAT and i asked my dad to sign me up and soon after started lifting, my dad was one lean mean mofo and for his height 5'7 or 5'8 he was 100% on his diet but now he's a mess since he got older he has to worry about other things ,he still lifts but more of a 2-3day split,but does eat semi clean,trows in a cheat meal about 2-3x a week ,but for his age he's in good shape compared to others......

    training, dieting and doing gear is a very self serving and personal thing that most dont understand...but you know there are times in our lives where we need not worry about what others think as long as we keep it in check....life is short and for me this is something i enjoy very much...i really look forward to shot day...well thats every day for me

    i will now pass the hat around for your donations,,,amen

    I posted this reply in a similar thread a while back. I think psychologically speaking, it is a control issue. When you reach a plateau, your body is telling you that it won't grow anymore. Our reply is "screw that, I'll make you grow". That is what drives bodybuilders and forces some to get "assistance". We deal with tons of stuff everyday that is out of our control and some of it drives us mad. Our body is something we can control. That, IMO, is why some guys get huge and others lack the desire. Some guys need more control in their life. But of course, there is another theory that I have.......We do it for the PUSSY!!!

    I was an athelete during my younger years, football basketball baseball. I train for the sports. When there was no more competition left. I made avow to myself that I would find another sport, not team related and compete, hence I became invovled in bodybuilding and have not turned back since. I also noticed that everyone seems to respect your more because of the self discipline. People always ask me how I do it. Shit I tell them its a way of life now. I honestly don't think I could ever stop now, unless I had to for my family. Peace

    Because so many people are fat and outta shape and that is down right depressing. And when it comes down to it I wanna marry a girl with an above average body, and a healthy lifestyle, so I'd be doing myself in if I just let myself be outta shape.

    I started lifting originally so I could get stronger. My dad use to push and beat me and my brother around alot. As I started getting stronger I liked the look too. After a while I started watching shows like the Met Rex worlds strongest man competitions. I always used to say to myself in ten years i wanna be there. Dead lifting the back of a beamer and going through all the events. This will sound funny but I wanted to be the next Magnus Samuelson... hahahaha

    Well after three years of lifting on and off i can say i do look alot diff. Instaed of being a lanky kid with a gut I am a beefy guy with a gut.

    As for everything else now.. its for the looks and mypersonal satisfaction... Always picked pn in HS and also by my father and once i get th flab down I'll finally be bale to walk around with out a shirt on down the beach and not be ashamed...

    And as for my father last year his drunk ass trying beating me I grabed his hand and squeezed it sooo hard i broke his thumb..

    I do it for myself, and no one else. You know alot of guys do it for the girls, but alot of girls dont like men that are sooo big and muscular. I really dont care for that. I saw a post where someone said you would get more girls if you had whimpy arms, rather than big buffed up arms that have stretch marks all over them. That upsets me to hear something like that. Bodybuilding and lifting weights is a sport different from any other. And because people dont undestand it they will critisize it. They critisize me all the time. Why do you eat so much, your gonna get fat, why do you eat that. Thats the sh*t i hear everyday. You know what i mean, if the average joe sees a big dude and the first thing he thinks is steriods . He doesnt understand all the hard work and effort that goes into looking that way. They dont understand why we do it and they never will. So why do we do it? I dont know. I even find myself asking myself why do i do it. Why do i squat so heavy that i end up vomitting. I guess the reason is because i love it. Im addicted to it. If i dont do it for a couple of days i wont fell right. Its just like DIESAL said, the hours i spend in the, nothing else matters to me. I feel at home there. And God willing ill be injury free and be able to continue for as long as i can.

    I am not out to be HUGE, just bigger than average and in really good shape.

    Why?

    Well, I was the proverbial scrawny kid in Jr. High. Picked on, teased and harassed. By the time I was in HS, I vowed "never again."

    To be completely honest with you, a big part of what drives me to get huge is my insecurity. I almost always feel small, yet I'm 235 at 5'8" with almost 19" arms. I hate saying this because it makes me sound so shallow, but I'm constantly comparing myself to other guys in the gym and on the street. I feel I have to be bigger and better than everybody else or I'm not satisfied. I constantly obsess about this, and it's something I really don't like about myself. But, it is also one of the things that drives me to be the best-to always improve and never be satisfied. I'm an extreme person. I don't listen to regular music-I listen to death metal. I don't just play the guitar-I play it for hours on end until my fingers bleed. Same with BB. I want to be the biggest baddest strongest mofo on the face of the planet. I want arms so friggen huge I can't find a shirt that fits me. I remember going to the Emerald Cup BB show back in 96', and Ronnie Coleman did a guest pose at this show(before excess GH ruined his physique)and I'll never forget the reaction of the crowd when he came out. Everybody stood up and just stared in awe-he was so huge and inhuman it just blew my mind. I've always wanted to achieve that. It is my destiny.

    lots of interesting posts... i started training/eating/sleeping right cuz i was tired of being small and weak, I also wanted the best body out of my friends to help with the ladies... now i love going out on the boat (...big lake by my town).

    Its also a long term health thing. And in regard to fighting... I try to avoid fights.. most of the time they are for ridiculus reasons and really not worth it, however if one of the rare things should happen that i need to fight for, being big won't hurt.

    lol JJ. My reason is simple, self confidence. I was fat until I turned about 17 and I could not stand it anymore so I took up lifting and running. I gained muscle and lost all my excess fat and ever since then I have been hooked. If I'm not lifting my self confidence goes down and I don't feel healthy, I feel fat. And the bigger I get the more self confidence I have.

    I didnt start out to be huge i started out to get lean from fat and have a nice physique and get stronger .... but my quest now for absolute hugeness is something else ... because i want to be different to everyone else i want to be looked at when i walk down the street or in the shopping centre (mall in u.s.a) i want to be admired and be considered a freak ... i want attention .... but the main reason it i want to be self satisfied ... and i want to be confident enough to wear a singlet when my arms arent pumped ..... and its also a self acomplishment thing too .... but i think mostly now i need to be large to be happy as pathetic and sad as it sounds when i feel small (we all have those days) i feel unhappy and depressed... i buy clothes depending on how big they make me look , if i see a real nice shirt and i try it on and its too tight (and to myself i appear small) i wont buy it.
    So its basically a self satisfaction thing ...

    I'm pretty big already, so says everyone else. But in my eyes you can never be big enough. Don't want to be a freak, but definently want my body to stand out more. Plus I think it's a challange for me, and it doesn't hurt to reach your goals. I guess I just want to see how far I can push myself.

    Definitely SHONUFF-We do it for ourselves, but when it comes down to it, the ULTIMATE motivation is women.

    I just wanted to lose some weight and get in better shape at 1st, then it sorta grew on me and I became addicted to working out. I have heard it may have something to do with a dopamine effect on the brain. You get a good feeling of euphoria after working out and you get addicted to that feeling.
