Hey guys, how about a little respect here…or do you all with the latter posts get off on degrading comments. I respect the first couple of posts, but I think the rest of you are taking this a bit too far.
First of all, I haven’t said that I think I’ve been doing things right. Yes, I have started a new routine recently that I hope will work, but in response to the guy who wants to give me the perseverence award, I haven’t been doing the same thing for the past 8 years.
I don’t want to surprise you guys, but just in case you haven’t noticed, each person is different genetically. When I was in college I was 135lbs and almost 6’. Now that’s thin.
So in the past 8 years I’ve probably gone through 5-10 programs, and my weight has been all across the board, even getting to 200lbs one time. But at that weight I wasn’t very muscular and surely wasn’t strong.
So I keep trying different routines and different diets to acheive what I would like, but it’s frustrating when I’m in the gym and see guys who are big never touch a squat bar but have big legs and have a 6-pack but don’t watch their diet.
In response to the guys who think I have absolutely no motivation, realize that one needs motivation to stick out 8 years but not seeing the gains you want.
Some of you guys out there have worked really hard to acheive your bodies through workouts that leave you sore for days and through rigorous diets, and you guys are the people I look to for the motivation to keep going when I think its just impossible.
Many others of you, though, either looked to drugs for your size or have the genetics to get there without really having to put forth the effort that the others did.
And I can tell you guys this until you’re blue in the face, but unless you could experience someone else’s genetics for a year, you’ll never be able to understand that.
Remember this forum should be for the benefit of all where people learn from others, so if you don’t have anything to say but to make fun of others, then its not worth saying.
