I voted for pure strenght/power, but... as long as my weight is below 75! It's related with sport.

I want to be a pure animal in terms of strength.
I mean if I want to compete at MA I need to be in certain categories ect, which will always mean I'll have to cut down to hit certain weight categories.
But compared to my old self, I accepted that I'm gonna lose alot of defination in my process of becoming a beast and accept that I still dont se4e myself as ever being physically unattractive.

lik at the moment im 19 i've been training for ma thing since i was 8 i do all the correct workouts sprints and what not
but i still am kinda on the chubby side i mean i diet to fit my workouts and what i train for, more specifically i train to be fit not buff because i believe to be fit opens the option of buffness so to say. so in all i believe getting FIT is more important than the cosmetic and BUFFness look if you will..

I voted for mix, dude! Look, I wanna be able to kick some ass, but I wanna look good too! Right now, I'm pretty fit, but since I haven't been training in a good while, I'm not as strong or as functional as I used to be. I still have a good physique though, but I don't just wanna look good, I also wanna be able to wreck people! What if I'm sittin there and some dude comes up and wants to mess with me for some reason?! Yeah, I'll look good, but I'll get the crap kicked outta me! And THEN how good am I gonna look, with my face all wrecked and my body all messed up?! You gotta be able to BALANCE that kinda stuff out, man! I vote for the mix! (Cause I STILL wanna look good!)

Meh, i mostly care that im healthy, fit, and able to be able to function decentley during practice and training, but i do want to also look good in a way, if i look decent i dont mind, i dont wanna look "Tough and Buff" as long as im not obese or overweight and can function properley and look decent, i dont really mind, so yea mix, leaning more to health and strength.

I train mainly to become skilled (strenght, coordination, flexibility... etc). The way I look is secondary but I realized that I do care about that when my abs started to stick out as if I was pregnant. Big shock! I thouhgt my belly would become flat! T_T.

Still, I'll go for the superskilled goal.

I started lifting weights last year. Just a few pounds, at home...nothing like you serious trainers. I want to be stronger than I am, and as an older woman my current concern is to minimize bone loss.

Weight training does not only effect the muscles. Resistance work also promotes bone density and strength- something that diminishes rapidly in post-menopausal women. This means that weight training in middle to later life keeps the skeleton, as well as the muscles strong.

Are you turning Canadian on us Cord?

Not sure for myself what I want now. What to get stronger and am finding it as I get older an uphill battle however I also want to look good; also an uphill battle.
