what made you guys finally hit the weights? Posted on February 15, 2023 by Anonymous what made you guys finally hit the weights?
I used to do calisthenics in the park and then a bunch of black guys stabbed me and robbed me of everything including my shoes, in london. decided I shouldn't go back and started paying for an expensive gym to try and keep away from blacks.
That's just part and parcel of living in a city you fucking racist.
So you went in a park, probably late at night, to work out? Sounds kinda like autism lol
Anyway I am so sorry to hear that this happened to you. If you feel like you suffer from this experience mentally you should talk to someone. If therapy is free in the UK get a therapist. And maybe buy a pepper spray
it was actually only around 3:30-4pm, west ham park in east london. it definitely fucked me up pretty bad especially as I had already been mugged once earlier that year, this was 2016. moved to a safer area once I could afford it a few years later, and then in early 2021 left the UK entirely. maybe I'll go back but I don't know.
London is a lost cause mate, the countryside is comfy and free, for now
I used to do jog in the park and then a bunch of joggers stabbed me and robbed me of everything including my shoes, in london. decided I shouldn't go back and started paying for an expensive gym to try and keep away from joggers.
lel, part and parcel.
i got my ass kicked while i was drunk by my friends. I did not retaliate because it was 1v3, and I didn't start lifting weights to get bigger and get revenge on them, but getting my ass kicked was definitely the wake up call to recovering control of my life.
Yeah you should learn myau thai and lift weights to get back at anyone that puts you in that situation, weak pussy!
i was an amateur boxer before that, my gym closed during the pandemic. I was drunk out of my mind and I didn't want to kick my friends ass because of a stupid discussion. I just didn't expect that the other two dudes would jump me too when the first traitor started punching.
what the fuck happened?
>mfw I got memed by this board to hit the gym
t. fighting/calisthenics fag
Get memed on bro
the need of serotonin in my brain, so i can keep up in my studies
also have sex
Tired of being literally the entire package of a good mate except just fat. Bitches will tell you it's okay or even sometimes preferable then not have shit to do with you. Ordering some home equipment now.
just go to the gym bro. no one cares if youre fat and weak
I grew a belly that wouldn't go away by eating just once each day. I had to do something. My sedentary lifestyle wasn't really sustainable in the long term.
Women? I don't even have any hope. I just watch them around with their smartphones and I get mad thinking how they might have around 50 simps behind drooling.
I've lifted in 3 different stages of my life. Well, okay the first two were more calisthenics than lifting but bear with me. I kinda had different reasons for each.
I genuinely enjoyed exercising. Not to mention I liked the ability to win pretty much any fight I would get into...I was a violent prick as a kid so I got into too many.
I could feel my health slipping away. No 14 year old should be 230 lbs...worse when that 230 is DOWN from 242 at age 12. I had to take back control of my life somehow.
By age 15 I had so many mental issues that it was out of some deranged persuit of perfection, whatever the fuck that meant. Almost died of what I presume to have been a heart issue during my 5th 16-mile run of the last week of February 2019.
>This time last year-Present (Age 18-19)
Self-hatred. Disgust at what I saw in the mirror. Sure, I had lost most of the weight I put on from ages 16 to 17, but A LOT of muscle came with it, so I was just a smaller fatass.
I feel the hopelessness with women. I hardly even want one anymore. My libido is on par with that of a pensioner and my oneitis died 3 years ago.
Chronic pain/fatigue. It helps a lot and I look healthy and ripped
I was 21 and had the body of a weak teenager. I was insecure about how people looked at me and didn't feel like an adult man
Now I'm 23 and have the body of a DYEL man but it's an improvement
Realized I’m attractive but was overweight at the time
I saw a picture of myself at a social event, and was embarrassed by how fat and pear shaped I had become
how long into starting strenght were you at the time?
yep, same here
something as boring as i walked up a moderately steep hill(maybe 130meters long) and i only got 30m or so until i had the taste of blood in my mouth and could hardly breathe. the very next day i made a routine which was mainly bw and some additional db exercises with some light dbs my mom had lying around and stuck with that for a year until i had saved up enough money for a squat rack and a bench with plates going up to 120kg and a pullup bar(all of which i eventually sold for drug money) just getting back on the horse now after being clean for 4 years and intend to just stick with rings and kettlebells for the most part
BWC! BWC! BUILT FOR BWC!
they were rude to me, I didn't want to hit them but I had no choice
For cute girls
I have bigger tits than that girl
I hope you are a (biological) woman
Petite girls are the best girls
I was a skinny runner for a long time and then one day I noticed all the hot girls at the gym i wanted to look like spent all their time in the weights section. Now i lift 4-5x a week and kickbox 3-4x and i’ve never looked or felt better
The promise of smashing in the face of pedophiles with dumbbells and kettlebells when the day of the rope finally comes.
2 more weeks?
I've been lifting off and on since I was in my late teens. At the beginning, I would go to the school weight room. I hated team sports but wanted to get credit for doing something, and my gym teacher agreed to it. Usually, I start up again because my body feels like shit, then I'll have a good streak going for a good 3-4 months and then stop going as regularly once I start feeling good results. Then my body feels weaker and the cycle continues.
I have a cushy desk job with good hours so I force myself to workout in my basement for at least one hour every day.
>lost a bunch of weight after I hit 17
>200 to 140
>friend dared me to dance with girl I had a crush on
>did it just to spite him, danced with her
>after that went to bathroom, looked in the mirror
>started lifting the next week
Well anyways, got to 185 natty, then roided up to 220. I dunno bro, still haven't fallen in love with a girl like that. Looked her up on facebook and turned into a cow, oh well.
>Looked her up on facebook and turned into a cow, oh well.
this is the same for all my crushes.
what were your max bench,squat,dl natty?
Friend convinced me to start doing cosplay with her, don't want to be the fat nerd in an ill fitting costume at the conventions.
When I lost weight I looked like a butterface twink and got body dysmorphia as a result. That's why I started lifting.
Got my ass kicked by a moron when I was 18 and I decided I'd never let that happen again.
Decided to kill myself but wanted to hit 405lb bench press first
>tfw at 385
i was always a skinny dude and i wanted to look normal. i now look normal. around fall this year i stop trying to improve at the gym and just train to keep what i have built.
I understood the weakness of my flesh and it disgusted me.
The will to dominate all life
Rejected for a second date. Had to clear my mind.
dumped by my ex and generally being disrespected by females
i figured getting healthier/bigger would solve some confidence issues at least
Realized being a skinny, weak sonofabitch wasn't respectable
My bro fell off the gym wagon and I saw a realistic opportunity to surpass him. My consistency has gotten him back into working out
I used to do lift up to 2020 just for fun, but then the virus lockdowns hit and i got sick, became lazy, gained some weight, then my dad unexpectedly died and then my ex fucked my shit up so i slowly realised i became a shell of the man i used to be.
getting older, never really been in shape for more than a year on end. just tired of avoiding photos.
back pain and shoulder pain in my late 20s
I am now 37 and pain-free. Yoga is the superior workout
lol. i started getting back pain and bad posture in early 20s. started lifting with calisthenics. I think doing back extensions and pull ups really got rid of all my back problems
120lbs previously. Nothing wrong with it, I literally don't give a shit about my body.
I want my gf to feel safe around me and to be able to carry her, also be able to defend her.
Fightingfag just trying to break a plateau
prediabetic, fatty liver diease.
I got cut from the baseball team my sophomore year of high school. I was fat and out of shape. That kind of kick started it and the fact I had never kissed or has a gf by age 16. Looking back, I didn’t really even like it and absolutely hated the other guys on the team (and I’m sure they didn’t like me).
>what made you guys finally hit the weights?
It was probably this one time when I got pats on my head and was told I was a good girl when I was eating out some cutie and made her cum very hard. She was more than a bit surprised when I took out my dick and told her I was a guy and it was now her turn to be a good girl for me. Made escaping the trap mode my first priority after that.
either skinny lanklet(for my age) after that fat asian nerd.
Then around 15 I was tired of being skinny fat at 160lbs 5'8 or so.
Got up to 200lbs at 5'10 in the next couple years.
Still, fat but at leats I gained some muscle.
Now I am 230 and going on a cut, finally doing hypertrophy work and growing some upper body muscle.
Seriously getting tired of shit libido and shit cardio.
Hooked up with a dyke I thought I had turned straight turns out she just wanted to suck my huge perky moobs as she put it. Definitely a low point
how did you not kys genuinely impressed at your will to live?
I will not rest until I have a wife that is this attractive.
be me, weak and extremely skinny, auschwitz mode, turns out growing up i had an eating disorder, decide to stop being weak and skinny, start lifting, life is good now i'm in a much positive place.
Working in a gym (for the second time)
My wife lost her libido. I felt ugly and sad, so I started going to the gym and it stuck.
My wife still has zero libido but at least now I can be objectively sure it's not because I'm disgusting.
My ex cheated on me on New Years night, literally my first relationship; it's been 10 years and I haven't got over my trust issues ever since, nor have I gotten into a relationship afterwards. Lifting and studying philosophy is all I have left now.
Just hit the weights already fag
The weight hit me, so I hit back.
