List yours. Mine is one thing and one thing only - women!

You would be amazed though I think alot of you, just how many women prefer the avg guy with a bit of a beer belly as opposed to one with 6pk and nice arms/shoulders, etc. You would be surprised, more than you would think.

Not saying it neglects me from working out and tuning up the body though. I appreciate a women who stays in shape and has a nice body, and I do the same for them. It shows that you care about how you look and your overall health.

I do it mainly for myself just to look better. Also, I feel better about myself when you know your becoming more in shape.

I do it more for health reasons. It is a great feeling to stay in shape and wake up each morning fit and healthy!

I do admit I do it for aesthetic appeal as well, I just do it more so for health.

its as satisfying to me as cumming is. Can you believe how much I am in heaven? I'm getting the feeling of cumming in the gym, im getting the feeling of cumming at home so I'm cumming day and night.

It's about women and health. That and the fact that I spent half my life as a fat mutha fucka and the thought of ever being fat again scares me!

You're pretty much bang on there. In my experience girls don't give a rip about gains you make, they really don't want to hear about you eating cans of tuna, protein shakes, and supplements, and they definetely don't want to see you admiring yourself or walking around like you think you're the "shit".

I do it because it takes away stress, and any time I need to clear my mind (which is always), working out is the best way to get me back on top of things.

"It is as satisfying to me as coming is - you know, as having sex with a woman and coming. So can you believe how much I am in heaven?

I am, like, getting the feeling of coming in the gym. I'm getting the feeling of coming at home. I'm getting the feeling of coming backstage when I pump up. When I pose out in front of 5.000 people I get the same feeling. So I'm coming day and night. "

Oh, and to answer the question - lately I have had no motivation so I've definately got to get back on top of that. When I was at the top of my game my motivation was chicks...then when I started doing it for myself I got lazier cause I realized that partying was a bit more rewarding to me! I skidded the ex last month though so hopefull I will get back into things ASAP!

i have noticed alot of times that those who only workout for girls never make it in the longrun, they only end up slacking in the end.

My motivation is for better health, & the satisfying feeling you get afterwards! & when you notice the effects, it gives you this great feeling of accomplishment! lol

I'd say that's true...cause you work out and all the chicks love you and then you have a whole swack of chicks on the line and you're too busy with your women to hit the gym. :thumbsup:

I like working out because it relieves stress and makes me feel better... I mean I feel bad for my friends who loose there breathe after walking up stairs bahaha.

I work out for a couple reasons

first of all it, when i work out during the day it helps me to relieve stress, but it makes me feel like i have accomplished something for the day, like more than just have gone to university and have sat in class

plus, i do it for health and lifestyle, me and my brother run a landscaping company, and its pretty crutial to be in pretty good shape or you just can't keep up with the work

And you know, the girlfriend never complains about the gains made thats for sure

Myself, I started for health/strength. I take self defence courses and you dont need strength to defend yourself but it can only help. More so if you get to the ground game and need to get on your feet fast.
But I used to have a hard time wake boarding because my arms were not strong enough. But now I dont have any trouble in that regards.

My main motivation is both for health and fitness.... but also for my job. You don't wanna be a hypocritical personal trainer, I think that's the worst thing ever!!

k lets be honest....i dont do it to get ladies, i do it because if i ever get a lady, im sure that if there were two of me THE EXACT SAME, but one of me was buff and sexxay and the other was a skinny boy that cudnt even lift a sack off potatoes...she wudnt want the skinnny guy. SINCE Im skinny right now, if i get a girlfriend now, ill just make her happy by her knowing i care about my body and keeping her happy.

and reason 2 is that even tho ud think after working out ud be tired, im really not, i usually feel pumped up.

reason 3. no one will ever wanna start shit with me. not that it has happened yet...seeing as how i have never had to fight anyone ever :D

reason 4. as if u all dont like looking at ur own muscles!

My main motivation is sports, I compete directly with a lot of my friends and it motivates me to beat them. Definitely not for looks, otherwise I would stop trying to gain weight.

My main motivation is vanity. I want to look good. I want the women to get hot and sweaty when I walk by. I couldn't care less about my health, that is why I take every roid you can imagine. What do I care if my children and grandchildren are born with defects. As far as I know, I don't have any children yet....I think not telling the women my name is working quite well- at least its a lot cheaper than condoms - LOL
