    And upper body strength helps you to, say, navigate US tax code, install software updates on your computer, work a tv remote, drive a car, etc, etc? Or don't rural people have to do those things?

    Apparently what I just said just completely went over your head. I said, strength training takes commitment and requires habitual qualities that translate into the real world. It doesn't necessarily have to be strictly strength. People who are physically fit fall under this category, and someone who is physically fit is more likely to be stronger then someone who sits on the couch 24/7. Which is why, regular exercisers earn more money then those who do not, even if said exercise isn't required for on the job performance. Regular Exercisers Earn Nine Percent Higher Pay Than Those Who Don

    So, in case you missed it the first two times, I'll repeat it again. Hopefully you'll get it this time. The benefits that one gets from a weight lifting program translate into the better job performance. Not because that weight lifting is required on the job, but because weight lifting has other benefits that translate into the work force.

    Really? You do realize his entire point had nothing to do with the practical use of physical strength in modern society and more about the character, dedication, and discipline to attain said strength right?

    lol @ the tricep. That's emo-muscle for jabroni posers

    Maybe go find a nice aerobics class where you can listen to your fallout boy boots

    you know, strength training and physical fitness doesn't need to be a sole focus in someone's life?

    When I was in my 20's I had a 23" right arm and a 22" left arm. Never wasted my time doing curls.

    Laughed allot at all of the morons spending the majority of their time at the gym doing curls, but never did them.

    right, because people with girly backs can't get the proper swing in their curl form. The Curl is scientifically proven to work every muscle in the body. It's like the instant breakfast of weight training

    Doubtless, you've conveyed to them personally your feelings, regarding what you evidently consider to be their diminutive status.

    Right to their faces, I'll wager.
