I'm not saying I don't like a guy to have muscles, but I was just wondering, Why do some guys want there muscles so big(like body builder big)? Personally I just don't find muscles that big attractive; like especially if you can see there veins bulging, it just doesn't look good(the same goes for body builder girls, I just don't think that they look feminine when they have muscles that big...not saying I would want a guy to look feminine though. lol).
bodybuilding is like anorexia, the guys starts out to build some muscle, then thinks its not bigger enough, and tries to get bigger and bigger. I and the cycle keeps going. I am doing muscle building, but I am making sure I don't get to big. I don't want to be either. I just want an athletic body really. I want a body like those guys just wearing boxer shorts in adverts. but I don't really care either about my muscles either. I would like to get six pack.
i want to be in the middle, not big, but not skinny. or fat.
1. The guy simply doesn't realize most women don't find this attractive or he figures there are a handful who will, because there are some girls out there who do like the super buff guys.
2. It's an ego thing among men. Men like to be bigger and stronger than their peers. It's an ego boost knowing that when you walk into a room, people are psychically intimidated by you because they all know you could kick there ass at any moment.
3. They just enjoy the sport of body building. Going to the gym, watching themselves get bigger, and betting healthy is fun for them so they have a hard time stopping. Kinda like the guy who loves to play video games. He knows girls hate it, but he doesn't care because he is passionate about it and has fun doing it.
A lot of times it just becomes very addictive to become bigger. Some guys (myself included) can get bored easily when they get to a plateu or a period in their weightlifting experience where they just need to "maintain". I started out at 118 lbs, then two years later got to 147, two years later I'm at 160 lbs and some people have told me that I'm getting a bit too big (5'6) but now I want 175. It's a never ending personal challenge to see how far you can really go.
I have a friend that does body building. I always wondered the same thing. But here's how it works, it starts out as just trying to get nice tone and muscles and whatnot, but then once they get that they need a new goal to go for, so for some, they take up body building. It kind of turns into an obsession. You start thinking to yourself, "Oh, I just want to look like this." But after so long that's not enough, you need to keep pushing to keep the endorphins coming and it really is, a drug-like addiction. I know most of this from personal experience as well. I always used to say I just wanted to be in shape, but now, I want a six pack and to be able to life certain weights and whatnot.
