Have Any Hobbies Besides Lifting?


#1

As the title states If I tell you mine will you tell me yours ?

Paintball I used to play at the Div 1 level from 1998-2004. I still play recreationaly.
I read a whole lot-Fantasy mostly
I play a game called Warhammer - Tabletop wargame miniatures- very addicting
I also play a game called Blue Max WW1 fighter pilot game using miniatures

Now with being married with 2 young kids it is hard fitting these in but I try too.

Fischer


#2

Skiing
Watersports (watersking, jet skis, hobie cat)
Coaching soccer and baseball for my 7 yo son

I’ve got 2 kids also, its definitely tough to fit in alot of extra activities.


#3

Reloading and Shooting.
Working on cars.
Reading: mainly crime fiction.

A great rule of thumb is to never reveal your hobbies to anyone. They make you sound weird.


#4

Asside from sports which is just lifting now…
I collect and repair watches, - late 60’s through 80’s Japanese dive watches.
And we just started bee keeping this year

Is this to see who is the geekiest?

This will be a tough one to assess


#13

Reading
Writing
Dogs
Cooking
being a master cocktail maker
chasing two year old


#14

Fishing. Any kind:fly fishing, surf casting, etc.
I used to play a lot of poker. But my wife went and had two kids on me.


#15

None.

Which disturbed me so much that I’m gong to start my sculpting/sketching again after a 20 year hiatus.


#16

Wow, some major geekage going on here. I feel so safe and secure with this group!

Reading: history, sci-fi (er, speculative fiction), alternative history
Guitar
Hiking

and here’s a new new one fer y’all: flight simulators


#17

-Bowling. Yet I can’t find an article of recommended exercises for the bowler-bodybuilder… neither in the bodybuilding nor bowling community. Besides, most bowlers static-stretch before playing. I preffer to dynamic-stretch before a game with some of the drills learned here!

-Playing the recorder.

I used to play video-games a lot, but I had an almost clinical addiction to them. I kicked the habit along with cigarette and booze.


#18

-Reading (scifi, space opera, speculative fiction, alternative history)

-Video games

-Juggling (balls, rings, and clubs)

-On very rare occasions, I toy with knitting. Laugh if you want, but it’s not wise to taunt a large man with sharp metal needles!


#19

Most of my other “hobbies” are in direct conflict with my working out and lifting heavy… things like boozing, whoring, blackjack, etc.

What the fuck, you only live once…
