    To members... Bodybuilding A hobbie or a future career?

    Ok guys just out of curiosity... How many of you guys on here plan on keeping bodybuilding a healthy recreation? and how many plan on going the distance? i.e. Turning pro or trying your best to get there?

    I'd like to say I hope on going as far as I can go with it... I'd love to someday turn pro... I do believe i have the genetics and will to do it... How about the rest?

    This is pretty much the only form of exercise I like, so I guess I'll stick with it for life, see what happens over the long haul. Don't wanna hassle with the contests, though. Figure I am what I am, a contest ranking won't affect that one way or the other.

    Not anyone can become a pro BB so going in with an attitude like "im going to be a pro and live of the money i make" can be dangerus. Sure let it be your lifestyle but dont quit your job yet

    Itīs a lifestyle, future amateur hobby for me. Nothing else.

    I know what your saying man... I'm not basising my life around it... i'm in my third of college finishing my degree in human kenetics and then hopefully going into teaching... I will pursue my dream though of becoming pro... But I'll make sure i have something to fall back on

    I don't really have any interest to compete at any level. I just want to get into best shape that I can, and maybe become a freak along the way.

    definitely a life-thing for me. i have no ambitions to compete...i like the way i feel about myself, i love seeing the changes i've made, from an overweight kid, to a scrawny ass college student...now bulked up a bit with muscle...i love seeing where i can take my body - and it's a healthy obsession to have -

    here's to life

    I like the feedback i'm getting from you guys... everyone has slight different opinions about bodybuilding and what they want to do with it... But the one thing that you all have in common is your passion for the sport... Keep the thread going fellas... Very interesting to see your thoughts on the subject.

    I have absolutly no assperations to get up on the stage.............I just like challenging myself. I enjoy weight training plain and simple. It's a single person sport imo. You get out of it what you put in.....it's not a team thing.........success and failure is all on you. That's why I like it.

    i just do it to try to get my body to its peak physical condition. our bodies are the best tool that we can use, so why not make it as good as possible.

    I do it because I believe the human body is the most incredible tool on the planet, and I love pushing it to the max and seeing what it is capable of.
