Why do you workout/compete?

  1. Why do you workout/compete?


    As an Andro Factory sponsored athlete and a NPC Men's Physique competitor I thought to start a thread with the question:

    Why do you workout/compete?

    I look forward to hearing what you all say. I will post my reason as well. If you want to see my Andro Factory Bulk-Up/Contest Prep log head over to the Andro Factory section.


  2. As a sponsered athlete, what sport do you do?
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

  3. I'm a NPC Men's Physique competitor. My next show is Aug 3rd NPC Tri-State Championships in NJ.

  4. i workout to compete in powerlifting. i won my last 2 meets, one at 220 (competed at 207) the other at the 198 (competed at 193) weight class. im recovering from a knee injury and am thinking of dropping down to 181 to see if i can win in 3 weight classes.

    i used to train and compete in swimming (11yrs), track and road racing (4yrs), sprint triathlons (3yrs), kickboxing (PKA rules, super featherweight, 2 years).
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

  5. I second Ozzie. I train/lift to compete and to better myself. I won my last meet at 220 and will compete Sept at 198. I have a list of goals I want, planned out over the next couple years. That's what drives me. I'm making a better me, in my eyes.

  6. That's awesome guys. Planning ahead is the key to success.

    I compete to prove everyone wrong. I was always the skinnier funny guy who lacked overall muscle size. Now with 2 competitions under my belt I am poised to keep improving. If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything. I work really hard in the gym and make sure every meal I eat is exactly what my coach tells me to. I also take supplements from my sponsor Andro Factory which has given my noticeable improvements over the past month.

  7. Right now I train because I love it, and I want to look and act (move) the part. As an exercise science professor and performance consultant, it helps to be able to "walk the walk".

  8. To be fit as I can in a very competitive sporting environment and also, be more youthful as I get older. I enjoy the competition and it drives me harder to be faster, fitter and healthier.

    I talk the talk, but also walk the walk.

  9. I compete to crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentation of their women.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    This year I had a lecturer position at the University of Kentucky. I'm starting a professor position this fall at Coastal Carolina University in SC.

  13. I used to be a alcoholic and it keeps me sober and happy but i also train to better my self and my life. I some day wish to compete in strong man/crossfit or if nothing else just be strong.
    Go big Or go home!!

    Lol. You realize P's and Q's is an expression meaning Pints and Quarts right? Not giving you a hard time just thought it was a weird choice for that sentence.

  15. it keeps me sane and away from hard drugs used to be quite the heroin addict now just juice, weed and the occasional drink. still working on quitting smoking though.

    Good stuff Jason...!

    I can't even imagine NOT training. I think I have always been rather "physical". I am not really a team player per se. I like to do things, where the effort is from a single person.
    I have trained for 25 years. My biggest competition is always against myself.
