    Re: How do you feel about your own personal physique/figure?

    I like the post topic because I started trying to think back on why I don't give a **** about my physique even when it was actually pretty good, as this is a somewhat unusual view on the issue. Usually people with good physiques have some degree of pride in it, but for me it was just what it was.

    So I was thinking and I figure it goes back to when I was in high school. I had a delayed growth spurt, like seriously delayed. I didn't even hit my growth spurt until 16-17.

    I was about 5' even when I was a freshman, and about 5'4 on my sixteenth birthday. I didn't hit 145 lbs until my senior year in highschool in football, even though I played defensive line (I've always been strong for my size).

    But I didn't hit my full height until I was about 20 (5'10) and then al lof a sudden, after years and years of trying to bulk up for football and never gaining a pound, I magically jumped to about 185 (this was what I weighed when I had a six pack) but nobody could tell that was my weight. They always guessed I was in the 165-175 range.

    So for me, I was just happy not to be a tiny little bastard anymore. I didn't care about what I looked like as much as I cared about not being small (My father is a huge man and always was a huge man. He's only 6' tall, but his frame is massive. So big that there is a picture of him standing next to Dan Hampton of the Bears from back when he was younger and he actually looks broader and wider in the shoulders than Hampton does in it)

    So for me, being small was bad, but being big (not fat) was good. Once I reached a size that could place me as a failry big guy for my height, I was perfectly content. The physique was never a consideration.

    Now I weigh 210, but most people are always shocked when I tell them because I'm not fat. I still wear the "athletic cut" suits even now, so I guess I got nothing to complain about.

    I don't mind people seeing my body wherever. I work pretty hard on my body though so I like showing it off.

    see I work really hard on my clothes so I'd rather people see them then me be shirtless. Actually it'd be an interesting experiment for me to tally how much time I spend shopping versus how much time I spend at the gym.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I go to the gym three times a week but I don't time my routine I just have a set I do...i guess it takes maybe 45 minutes? So that's 2 and a half hours.

    Versus maybe an hour three times a week...so three hours.

    So it's about the same.

    Wow...I go to the gym for about and hour and a half in the morning 3 times a week and for about two hours in the evening 2 times a week. That's just for me.

    Sometimes Josh and I just go to the gym to play raquetball or to run together or we used to do the cycling class before I couldn't anymore. We're usually there 2-3 hours together about 2 times a week, maybe. Sporadically on that though.

    I only go to keep my size and do weights, I actually hate it. I vastly prefer to just ride my bike around, although that's harder during the winter.

    I hate the gym, it's so boring and the music sucks and I don't know anyone. I really hate going.

    The music is so loud it always drowns out my headphones so I have to listen to their inane gym trance music.

    It's so lame. It's such a chore to go. I can't wait until I have a long term partner and I can get fat and not have to go anymore

    Well.

    I think for someone to say that they are not self-aware as far as physique goes, even in the smallest degree, are not telling the truth
    I guess there could be the possibility where self-awareness could just not be there at all, but those are the members whom I'd considered are under an unusual amount of mind altering drugs; I.e. Galenrox. In the culture we have goign on in America we see all these "slamming" bodies, and people who have spent way too much time not only in the gym but also in front of the mirror, and in the supplement section of their grocery store.

    I used to do a bunch of weight lifting, but I finally realized that the human body is just not designed to build muscle whenever one wants to build muscle. It seems the constant struggle of the body to stretch the muscle, tear it, and "replace it" buts too much strain on the body itself. But, I do realize the importance of those who do not have very "healthy" working lives, where they sit in a cubicle all day and they have to exercise in order to stay "in-shape" To suffer torments on their muscle in order for aesthetics.

    I stopped my extreme working out routine when I heard this story of a guy who lived in my home-town, who owned a gym suddenly dying from a heart attack because he was too big. No, not because he was obese, but because his muscles were too developed and they were just putting an extraorindary amount of stress on his heart.

    After that I started running a lot more. Running has always been my supplement to stressful times, and to stay releatively healthy; my dad got me into it, as he's an avid runner and he owns a running-shoe store. This past running season (for me running season are any times when it's not frigidly cold. So mid-spring to mid-Fall, I maxed at a half-marathon. I am going to attempt the marathon this next season, hoping I can get back into a good routine.

    Some numbers? Well. I started off college at 5 feet 10 inches and 230 lbs, but now, as a sophomore, I am about 6 feet and 170 lbs.
