Why do you do it?
Hey, everyone. I have been wanting to ask this for some time. Why do you all bodybuild? Looks, job performance, strength, competition-on any level, personal satisfaction, health? I'm not asking this in a negative way, but I am curious. I do it for all of them, except for competition-I don't plan to. Are there any other reasons why you are in the BB lifestyle?

i used to be a bully magnet as a kid. this changed everything. but then coupled with some martial arts i picked up = me being a better person since it enforced self-restraint and self-control.
ps: i don't bodybuild :D

Are you serious, Anuj? What do you do, then, in terms of weightlifting? Way to go, dave!! Did you work out at 17?

I'm serious...I used to be picked on....because I was big and fat...usually kids who are big and fat are the real bullies but I was too "soft" as a person to bully anyone....nothing much has changed...I just know how to go about things differently now :)
As for what I do in the gym....I'm into Powerlifting / Strongman Training / Strength Training....in short: I hate to label what I do..so I'll keep it simple: I train for myself :)

^^agreed about not calling it BB'ing as that is a different animal...
I strength train (I like it as a nice umbrella term anyway) partially for wrestling and for overall health... I used to be a fat kid too but lifting/wrestling has really improved my self-confidence, and from that I've just become a healthier person in general (more friends, happier, etc.)

i lift because i want to be able to roof a feather........................................... ......... take a feather and try to throw it on a roof and you will see what i mean :)

Several reasons I guess, but the most important being the sense of satisfaction I get from achieving a goal. Plus, changing the way I look is a definite bonus.

True, Widdoes. I remember in my "When/how did it start for you?" thread where you tell of your start in BBing. What a transformation!!!
