I got into sports in high school, starting lifting to increase my strength in wrestling and track, and have not looked back since. I love to work out, if I don't do some type of lifting every day I feel horrible. Lifting weights and working out is one of the best improvements to my life that I have ever made.
Why I Love it
The pump, the feeling of accomplishment after a tough workout, thinking of new ways to punish a muscle group, the look, respect from others-especially women. There's just something about lifting weights, so basic, so primal. I don't know what I would do if I could not lift weights anymore. There is really nothing like it. I'm kind of a dork: I'm the kind of guy that gets excited over a new Muscle and Fitness, or deciding/creating a new workout routine...I mean I get pretty psyched just thinking about Leg Day. You really don't understand how awesome or hard bodybuilding is, until you actually do it...and I'm hooked. Now I will probably never become an IFBB Pro, but doesn't mean I can't bust my ass to look like Frank Zane or Bob Paris.
