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

    I am completely comfortable with myself and how I look.

    I have always been extremely athletic and coordinated, and I was born lucky
    (to my point of view).
    6'2" 195 lbs lean and toned. I was a competitive track runner for over ten years.
    Never really worked out, maybe some crunches or push ups here and there, but generally, I do sports.
    Surfing, martial arts and mountain biking keep me going just fine.

    I am more normal now, I guess. 37 and not quite as studly as I was ten years ago when I was in ridiculous shape. But I can still go for a hike at a moments notice and beat everyone to the top and I surf almost daily. We are gonna hike the local mountain next Sat. It is a good ten hour round trip hike, I have heard...

    I don't mean band t-shirts or crust fashion I mean hipster artsy print shirts, like the Man Epic shirt I posted.

    Yeah crust-fashion, while filthy, is really cool. It's a sort of return to original 80s punk fashion- no more hardcore guys wearing t-shirts and athletic shorts with addidas sneakers.

    I think band t-shirts are acceptable to wear to shows, but otherwise they better be REALLY cool. There's a distressing number of goth girls wandering the world wearing faded ****ty Love Cats ts. I do own some band Ts that I wear around (I have a really bad ass Last Resort shirt I like a whole lot) but wearing nothing but band t-shirts is the realm of metal listening fat beards.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Physically, I'm pretty chill with being reasonably exposed just about anywhere. However, socially... I am something of a old-schooler when it comes to clothing, and I just can't help but feel akward when I'm not at a beach, or something with a similiar mentality, and either am, or see, someone without their shirt.

    It's just akward... I always think Ben Stiller playing ball against that fat sweaty guy and then his face slams right into his sweaty chest. Whoever it is, that's all I can think about... Heh, weird, eh?

    Interesting...I am 6'2" but used to be a very buff 220lbs. Now I am 38yrs and not so buff but still 220lbs. I am not just saying this but I too have always felt very lucky about my being more physically talented than most! I also felt lucky to easily do good in school when I wanted to, when so many others struggle. I grew up playing hockey and would have done more sports but I was more interested in spending my time doing outdoor/nature things.
    I actually went through a phase where I wanted to live off the land in some mountains, but then I reached puberty and realized that is not where the chicks are!

    No, but they set off a blazer and jeans when you get the right wash on them. I consider it fashion when worn right. In and of themselves, they aren't.

    Very bad, although improved the last few years with rigorous exercise, often daily for months, and at least even for slack periods an average of at least a few days a week. All because I didn't feel good in my body. Two years later with much less fat and much more muscles and a much darker tan I still do not feel confident about my body, even though its more fit than 95% of other people.
    I live on a dry tropical island with loads of people walking around without shirts and in rather small shorts, and I do the same without feeling comfortable, yet I want to juice my body much more. Will it ever stop?

    Still, when I started the rigorous diet and exercise program I wasn't very much overweight, just a little. Sometimes I envy the unfit and fat who seems so comfortable going around without shirts and their saggy bellies and man boobs.. Its weird.

    Hmm.. Actually I work hard on my body but I do not like people looking, actually it makes me feel uncomfortable.

    I'm serious...hours of gym time per week is directly proportionate to the number of years younger you look.

    And if you go every day, you meet people and start doing things other than just boring weight routines with them. It becomes a social network after a few months.
    You don't have to go to the gym. I do light workouts at home (dumbells, crunches, push ups) along with running, cycling, and swimming and most people tell me I look ten years younger than I am.

    I do tae bo at home, with resistance bands. Also have a bowflex. Keeps me pretty goddamn sore.

    I ****ing hate going to gyms. The last thing in the world I want to do is 'socialize' with a bunch of sweaty, stinky people.

    I am with you. I hate gyms. I don't mind the pool so much - completely different crowd than the local gyms.
