    If you're at the gym looking like this,

    I hate you. Go home. You're done. Yes, I'm jealous that your genetics allowed you to be naturally thin. And maybe you did have to work for your muscle tone, but you're making me feel bad over here trying to run off my genetics. 😒

    I actually start to feel a little depressed

    and out of balance if I miss more than 3 workouts. Anyone else have that experience?

    Never Used to Be For Me....

    I always hated exercise as a kid and always faked sick days on sports and swimming days at school. I spent most of my life above 90 kilos until I got a job in hospitality where I was putting in up to 14 hours a day and I dropped a heap of weight. All of a sudden...

    I walk into the gym, headphones in,

    music focusing me, I am confident, sweat pouring out, I love this feeling, if I could bottle it up and use it later I would.

    I have recently moved

    and haven't been back in so long because I'm afraid if I do I'll go back to how I used to be being upset when I had to have my rest day but I absolutely love it especially considering the change it made I'm definitely going back tomorrow now

    I love it so much that

    even on the days I was sick, I hit the gym. I should've been more careful because my left shoulder got bigger than my right. I fixed it only to find that my right tricep is bigger than the left only to find that my left side of the chest is much tighter than the right. It took...

    Not to put all of the detail in from my other

    experience in regards to working out, but I mostly stick to heavy compound movements, using high weight and low reps. That being said, I thought I'd throw it out there that I've been trying the 5-3-1 program from T-Nation for the past few weeks and am really liking it. You do...

    So much that I train twice a day.

    The results are addicting and I love the feeling of building muscles. Fitness has given Mr many ups and downs in my life but it's something I could not live without.

    It's such an important part of my life.

    I do it for the endorphins. Sure I could eat better but I'm a foodie! I workout 4-5 times a week. I walk out feeling like a model :)

    I'm not gonna lie. My enthusiasm

    for it waxes and wanes. I don't love it on the first day back after a month or more of not going. I love to go when I've gotten into the habit, I don't dread it, and it's not such a struggle. Exercising is so much more mental than physical. If you think about it, everything is...
