If anything I avoid people who's whole life seems to circulate around lifting.

    As far as my general social life, not much has changed I feel more secure about myself than I did before but I now realise that it was really nothing to do with my physique and more of a reluctancy to take risks. Lifting if anything has made me more self reliant , self confident and self aware.
    This^ not much has changed in my social life. I'm naturally an introvert and don't have many friends. The few I do have are close though. Lifting has given my life direction and purpose more than anything

    My friends don't know I lift as much as I do, they just wonder how I have been getting bigger. I can keep myself happy just being alone, working, working the dogs, fishing, hunting, running, lifting, studying, going on trips. I have a lot of acquaintances but I bounce around a lot. I'm the guy that will go to 8 parties in 1 night by myself, because every party is a "Clique" but I get along with them all.

    i'm naturally very extroverted so it's made me a lot of new friends from meeting people at the gym. it seems like more people want to be friends with me and lift with me since i first started going to the gym as well

    For a little while it was cutting in to my social life a lot and it took me a while to realize but once I saw what was happening I just started going to the gym before school and I'm back to going out pretty much every night but Wednesday, don't party though as that's just not me.

    Super strong bump and idgaf. Sorry.

    My question is how you guys went about cutting the drinking and partying and crap out to focus on your goals, because it's shoved in my face constantly. I'm not the type to be hostile to friends and tell em to **** off either.

    I imagine cutting your social life sucks big time

    I took weight training at my old school and it changed the way people perceived me a lot. I was the scrawniest kid at school and i had no friends, but a lot of the football players got to know me through the class and people stopped seeing me as a scrawny bitch. It gave me a lot of confidence and i ended up getting a huge rep at school for being the craziest person there. Not really related to lifting, but i feel like it helped me build the confidence to earn that title. No joke, the dean called me into the office and told me that i was getting too crazy and causing too many problems at school. They spent the past few years bitching at me for being a loner and then all the sudden they were literally telling me that i was too social

    I left that school a few weeks later and im so much happier than i used to be. Ive actually muscle in the past month due to the reduced stress

    Well, I share stuff here…does that count?


    I discuss lifting with a few friends that still toss iron.

    Really, lifting in a home gym is nothing like the brotherhood of nights at the gym used to be back in the 80s-90s.

    Back then we would all go out to eat, have cookouts, play football or beach volleyball or wiffle ball ….friends became tight….people got married and best man or brides maids from the gym was fairly common.

    Haven’t been in a gym since the late 90s.
