Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about lifting for contests or lifting for ..... within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: Just curious, there are some jacked guys on here and I was wondering, how many of you are lifting and taking gear for contests and how many are lifting for the ladies ? I am personally lifting for myself and for the ladies. I guess more for myself now than the ladies. I am kinda sad really, I end up looking in the mirror all the time.

    lifting for contests or lifting for .....

    Just curious, there are some jacked guys on here and I was wondering, how many of you are lifting and taking gear for contests and how many are lifting for the ladies ? I am personally lifting for myself and for the ladies. I guess more for myself now than the ladies. I am kinda sad really, I end up looking in the mirror all the time. I keep it warmer in my apt so I can walk around without a shirt and look at myself. I am way to modest to do that in public so I check myself at the house. Wasnt it Arnold that said looking at himself in the mirror was better than having sex ? Well, at least I am not that bad but if I had his body, I would probably say it too. Anyway, I would like to hear some stories about your experiences and why you lift that heavy weight all the time. I get tired of trying to explain it to my beer bellied buddies, I am sure a lot of us can appreciate the stories here. Peace

    Started taking gear to build mass and a better body (I was always skinny) now, 4 years later, I'm taking it to compete in my first bbing comp.
    I spend more time in the mirror now than ever - (posing ect) - the judges are gonna be tough and i want to see exactly what they see. You gotta look and take not of what you need to work on - don't be ashamed of looking in the mirror man. Your trying to build a better body! You beer bellied friends wouldn't understand - you'll learn to tune them out - I have!

    eh, even after putting on size and getting more I dont get that much action. So I lift for myself. And I do check myself out in the mirror a lot.

    In the mirror way too much, and I hear about it from friends. But at the same time, some of the admit that they would be too if they turned they're physique into something like mine. Thing is when I look in the mirror, I enjoy seeing years of hard work, sweat, and dedication.

    I lift for personal protection. Unfortunately, anti-social behaviour seems to be all too common in Britain these days. Felt very vulnerable a few years ago especially walking home at night, so I started lifting. I'm glad I did, because I feel good, safe, and confident all over now.

    I would never put myself through what I do for anyone else but myself. It's too damn hard! Diet for women???? Hell no! They don't like big muscles anyway. I always laugh at guys in the gym that are just trying to get ass from training. Believe me a fat job, phat house, and sadly a phat ride will get you more ass than any 22" biceps ever will.
