This is my motivationThe fact is that we are here to help you, but the majority of us on here are very serious about bodybuilding and training. It's not just a hobby for us, it's a way of life. We don't stop working out for a few weeks "just because". The gym is our iron palace, we live, breath, sleep iron. We are iron warriors who put our bodies through torturous sessions willingly because we love the challenge.
We are sore 24/7.
We are never happy with our bodies, it is never good enough. We desire to be the best we can be. We get nervous before leg day cause that is the most challenging day of the week. 315 lbs on your back will make you nervous. We don't bullcrap with women, we don't care what people think about the latest headlines. We are there for one purpose and one purpose only, to push iron.
For that one hour, nothing else matters, not the mortgage, not the pending layoff, not the problems at work, nothing. It's not a social event for us, it IS US. We are jerks because we don't talk politics with the fat guy on the treadmill next to us. We are perceived as unbalanced because we appear to be nothing more than meatheads.
We are misunderstood.
As Henry Rollins said, 200 lbs will always be 200 lbs. No other activity/sport gives anyone the chance to challenge yourself on a daily basis like bodybuilding. We are accused of not living it up because our diets focuses on fish/chicken/brown rice. We are told to just "live a little".
This is who we are.
