Overall health mostly, I just enjoy being fit.
Also checked the one for attention. Not inside the gym itself, but who doesn't like to look good for the opposite sex?
Also checked the one for "see how hard i can push my physique". I'm always looking to improve!

How far I can push myself is always what I look for whether it be cutting or bulking it always amazes me at how much one can lose/gain during a period of time and the discipline thats involved in such a change.

I am motivated by many reasons.
1. To be healthy and teach my kids by example on how to eat right, lift weights and push yourself because sometimes good things don't come easy.
2. To be a company representitive that lives the lifestyle and walks the walk and represents to the best of my ability.
3. Stress relief and of course vanity.

To see how far I can push my physique / Overall health
I also do enjoy the attention I get while working out

for me, it's multiple reasons:
i get the high postworkout - at times, it's intense...feels so good...wish i could get it on a regular basis
attention - i may look better now than i've ever before.
pushing my body - 1st time i deadlifted 315, or when i benched 225x6...it's just an awesome feeling.
health - both mental (great stress relief) and physical benefits are tremendous.

Over all health, but mostly to push myself to see how far I can go. It feels great to set goals and then crush them. The gym is my release. It is the only positive way I have to let go of negative energy, anger, and stress from my day.

Couldn't vote above because it wasn't listed. I workout to let the demons out so to speak. Nothing is better (except sex) for getting rid of all your frustrations than grunting and groaning and pushing the most weight you can. Oh yeah and I love the adrenaline rush during the workout.

I do it for a couple reasons
1- overall health
2- preventative measures for when I'm older
3- post workout "high"
4- enhanced sex life because my lady loves that I take control and can toss her around because of my strength and libido

I would have to say without doubt, all the above! Can change and sway a bit depending on life circumstances. I also like that its the one area of my life I have complete an utter control of. Economy can affect your job, Women can break ya heart, people can die, all kinds of bad things can happen in life. but the condition of your body....is COMPLETELY in your hands. Its the one thing i truly control.
but you left out the nice feeling when a chick you like digs your bod!:bruce3:

Good catch...not too many people know what the quote is from. I get a chill down my spine everytime I watch the movie and hear him say that.
And love the "the weights never lie" Cause to me, they don't make themselves lighter just to make you feel better, they are what they are, and if you can't lift them it just means you need to try harder.
My fait is in my hands...it is up to me to determine my end game.
