DYEL? I used to shake my head at the "meatheads" that had this as their mantra. DYEL, bro? I thought it was stupid and unnecessary. Some of you do, too.
It's not. Lifting is by far the best thing you can do for yourself.
Why is picking up heavy things and putting them back down so important?
Lifting gives you a body that is attractive to the vast majority of women out there. Would you rather be attractive or unattractive?
Would you rather date/fuck an attractive woman or an unattractive one? Two twin girls - one is average, the other looks toned and fit. Otherwise identical. Who do you pick?
So not only do you get more sex, the sex itself is better due to more stamina and harder erections.
I love the physical presence of usually being the biggest baddest motherfucker in the room. Instant alpha status without saying a word. You rather try to amog a 120lb longhair stoner or a 240 lb MMA dude with cauliflower ears?
Being in a gym with other huge beasts gives you a sense of humility and brotherhood.
Being around other males with the same outlook, drive, and desires leads to male spaces and friendships, a category sorely missed in the culture of today. (Everybody knows about "Curves", right? Woman only gym. Every wonder what would happen if you started a "male only" gym?)
Strive to be a better man than you were yesterday. Then tomorrow strive to be better. "The only easy day was yesterday". Having a concrete goal and striving toward it gives you the power to believe in yourself. Seeing those lift numbers go up, the belly fat disappear, the increase in girls that literally have to touch your arms/shoulders/abs (swolestation) all allow you to view progress.
Lifting is not just about getting jacked. Lifting is a discipline.
Getting up early, going to the gym when you really would rather lie in bed next to a naked sweaty girl takes discipline. Putting the donut down takes discipline. Gutting out those last reps to failure takes discipline.
If you're jacked, you can't help but show that you have complete control over at least one aspect of your life. This control and discipline bleeds into your personality. You actually become a more confident, self-assured person. That's the kind of guy women want.
Lifting using large muscle groups increases testosterone.
Losing fat increases testosterone.
Losing the FUPA (Fat Upper Pubic Area) will give you a bigger dick.
There are virtually no fat fuck 70 year olds waddling around. Why? They're dead of heart disease/diabeetus/liver failure from abusing their bodies for 40 years. Keeping your body in great shape pays dividends in the future. There are multiple older guys at my gym that are still vital and loving life, not cruising down the aisle in Walmart on a sad scooter leaving a trail of Dorito crumbs. I want to be that horny vital 70 year old that still has a twinkle in his eye. Lifting reduces bone density loss and improves balance,,, or you can topple over one day and break a hip. Also reduces the risk of other joint injuries.
New studies show weight training slows cognitive decline. Increases BNDF and hippocampus size.
Going to the gym is my pilgrimage. It's not home, it's not work. Nobody has any control on my time but me. The iron church.
Pushing yourself to add another 5lbs and having the drive and desire to do it for yourself, because you've made lifting for life a goal, gives you the fortitude that your validation is internal.. you're not pushing yourself for anything other than reaching your goal.
If you're stressing about something, I guarantee you won't even be thinking about it during a non-fuckarounditis workout.
It increases your sexual stamina. Want to pound a girl until she can't take anymore? Good luck if you're an out-of-shape neckbeard.
Want to throw a girl over your shoulder and carry her upstairs to the bedroom, her squirming as you slap her ass? You need to be strong.
I have no issues with body image. I love the way I look. I MADE this. I like pulling off my shirt at the beach with pride, not self-loathing and fear someone will point out my enormous moobs.
Angry? Use it as fuel. Burn it.
Can't sleep - exhaust yourself against the iron.
Feel the need to masturbate for the 3rd time today? Go lift something. A Shakeweight does not count.
Lifting releases endorphins. I feel AMAZING after a good workout.
