For me, its that glory you get. Im in high school and I always wanted to be the guy that every High School fan knew about. To be on the news in the “Sports Spotlight” (they interview you and your teammates and stuff) I have a little brother and for teachers to say “You are Carsen’s little brother? Wow, he was an athlete.” Just stuff like that gets me running and lifting everyday.

Damn right! Awesome post. Thanks for the link.

I workout because I want to be lean and fast.
In my head I think of myself being able to do 100 one hand push ups at once and do pull ups easily.
I have also had day dreams of things like being trapped in a burning place, and the only escape is a hole in the roof, but I can’t lift my bodyweight up to escape so I die.
Here is another great long term goal to have for appearance, I don’t know if it is possible to achieve and hold or not.


Being able to deadlift 700lbs would be real nice too.
Another dream has always been to be able to run far and fast.
Hot bi-sexual girls that want to have sex with me and their girlfriend’s.

Sorry for being off-topic, but this is incredible man. That guy is a fucking T-dad.

That’s all the motivation I need. Thanks for the link.

Why do I do it??? Because i got sick of being fucking flabby since i was a child. Plus, I can say with all honesty that im addicted.

I’m addicted
And I need to fight against me
And I need to win too :slight_smile:

Your apology isn’t worth much if you haven’t done a search to find out if in fact this topic has been done. Did you search? What did you look for?

Furthermore, why are you asking complete strangers for inspiration? How do you know that the next John Wayne Gacy isn’t waiting out there to plant a seed in that little mind of yours?

As an alternative, I suggest you read. Sound familiar? Read every article that Dan John and Chris Shugart have written on this website. I suggest you start with “Merry Christmas, Bob” for motivation:

I started because i got sick of being a Fat Bastage. Now i want to see how far i can go. I love the looks i get now and cant wait til i reach my goal.

As far as prison movies, if you mean women in prison, check out the classic Pam Grier Trilogy…

The big Doll House
Black mama, White Mama
The Big Bird Cage…

They are Classic

cool. i was bullied at school and the reason i work out is because

1)i want to get big,strong and tough enough to beat the shit out of people who try to walk all over me

2)to protect those i love

3)so that my girlfriend see me as a gorgeous beast and want to have sex with me all the time.

Off your meds are you? Well, when you finish with the tantrum (and are back on the meds) I still suggest you read the article I provided a link to.

Failure motivates me…not being able to do something or lift a weight, meet a certain goal, only fuels my fire and drives me to success for my next workout…
