      What said. The grind is unavoidably over when you die, but you can choose to call it good/give up whenever. For me, it's not over until my grandchildren are strong enough that playing/sparring with me and their parents isn't helping them progress anymore.

      The "point" is, to an extent, whatever you want it to be. But if you want the most barebones, universal answer of all, it's about spreading your influence so you continue to "exist" long after you die. Have as many kids as you can afford (you can't afford a kid if you don't have enough money to give them a solid head start in life), spread your ideas to as many people as possible, create things that people will use/see for a long time, win arguments in front of other people, write your thoughts down on a publicly available platform, etc.

    Hopefully never. Point is that the alternative is fucking boring and depressing.
    Everytime my life gets too good, I get depressed

    It's over when you're dead. Simple as.

    >When does the grid end?
    Hopefully never.
    >What's the point?
    I don't need there to be a point.
    I'm alive now, but one day I will die.
    That is reason enough.

    Not IST, this is more like philosophy.

    But to answer your question

    >When does the grind end
    150 kg bench, 200 kg squat, 250 kg deadlift would be an end point for me. But then I would train to maintain it.

    >Whats the point
    1. Getting women
    2. Having security against robbers
    3. Having respect of other men

    The more you grind, the better it gets.
    At some point you're satisfied, but you don't stop grinding, you keep at it so you don't lose the standard .

      If you are at the point where you are questioning the point of the grind then you need to delve into philosophy and read Nietzsche's ( and only Nietzsche's ) books.

      Also it's important to understand that working out itself is not "the grind". Pic related.

      True. You can even see this in your own muscles. As the muscle becomes stronger it grows less because it becomes incredibly resilient to the stress the grind applies.

        This bro hasn't read fitizen isekai if he doesn't think working out is creative.
        Also, creativity is mostly a woman's ambition. Men work with reality, hence why they're hands on and their works tend to concern observation and reason.
        Hence, men created math and science. Women created intersectionality.

          By creative he is referring to actually creating something. Violence creates power, working out does not create power.

          Creativity is Apollonian. While technically feminine in the masculine / feminine dichotomy, it's not exclusively for women, it's a fine pursuit for right brained men. Civilization is feminine in the civilized / barbarian dichotomy, but not every man who lives in civilization is a s8yboy.

        >working out isnt creating the body i desire and the life i want
        Simple case of mischaracterization. Poor guy just got confused, is all.

    Read your bible anon.

    I'm not even religious but this chapter is worth reading, 100%, for anyone who is prone to melancholy. The bible endured for a lot of reasons but at least one of them is because some of the shit in there is actually decent advice.

    >What do people gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun? Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises. The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again. All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing. What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time. No one remembers the former generations, and even those yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow them.

    >What is crooked cannot be straightened; what is lacking cannot be counted.
    >For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.

    I recommend the NIV translation because it's understandable without losing all of the poetry of the writing. Ecclesiastes is a short book, like a 20 minute read if that, but for the people who need it it will stick with you your entire life. It's also the source of like all of the most famous bible quotes so it's worth reading just so you can smugly tell people when popular media includes a cheeky Ecclesiastes quote. Ecclesiastes is a really unique book in the bible.
