I honestly train for strength only. I'm comfortable enough with my body to accept that I'll never be as sculpted as I might want, but any time I've been strong the looks have come with it. For that matter, I've been letting myself go a little too much and people still assume that I work out continually.

What motivates me to train is Bruce Lee, and to be a great martial artist. Bruce Lee had an amazing physique, yet he was really strong.

I go to the gym three times a week, I train (martial arts)with my daughters every night of the week. My goal is to get back into shape and be competitive on the tourament circut in Texas like I used to be when I was much younger.

That would be cool. I could do it now with a little bit of air brushing and shadowing effects.

Sure, I really need weight training for strength to train Jujutsu effectively. But heck, I gotta look good for the ladies.

a very good topic, lets u see other views to this.

i train to become so strong i won't need to be. I want to be so powerful, that i wont need to worry about my safety or whether or not i can defend my family, friends and myself. It's not really a goal that i can accomplish, but it's something i strive for, because you will never know when you need it, until its too late. There's nothing worse than being strong, but not strong enough.
