People need to build their brains. Too much focus on the physical, makes people dull. Dullness is antiattraction.
 

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

Ok I don't compete but weightlifting is not a waste of time in my opinion. It's an incredible stress reliever. As far as bodybuilding goes, I really don't feel anyways about it. Guys do it and it's their thing. i got respect for them. If they want to do it, do it.

Yeah I figured but guys think sometimes and I'm not saying it was him that lifting weights is a waste of time. Or they may think it's boring. Me I get a rush and a great pump and feel great when I'm leaving the gym.

I think it is. I like being low body fat and I enjoy my abs. It makes me feel good and look good.

Compound movements vs isolated movements. I don’t even work core outside of deadlifts. That’s more than enough. Deadlifts are the perfect lift.

I’m in and out. I only lift heavy one day a week. It’s a stagger away from the bar intensity.
Diet keeps fat off better than workouts. Once you get there.

I’m already 6’2” and 215 pounds. I have no intention of getting bigger. I think it’s not very functional to excessively bulk your muscles. I rely on agility in most of my activities and it’s more functional.

Size can be good to a certain level,some people work out and more often than not you cant tell because lack of bulk.
Im not talking about getting huge but i think a little bigger is not bad.
However when you lose flexibility, agility or explosiveness its not worth it.

I agree deadlift best exercise work more body part than anything else.
It will help with almost every body part except the chest. Id recomend a little bit of bench too, unless your chest is already developed

You have a grasp on what I’m trying to achieve. I do wind sprints I. The summer and dead mill sprints when it’s cold out.
I have one day of interval cardio breathing only through my nose.

Bodybuilding has saved my life if I'm being totally honest. If I didn't see Ronnie Coleman on the cover of flex magazine at publix when I was 13 I would have never started early like I did, which helped me so much with my lung disease that over time has worsened my quality of life. I've been on both sides of the coin; as a normal gym goer, & as a competitor onstage. My comp days are behind me as my priorities & desires have changed, & I don't regret ever committing to the extremes of dieting for months on end, living like a monk & aiming for a goal. It taught me about working hard & seeing something through to a finish line.
That being said, I'd never compete again for the extreme reasons I would commit to; isolation, not hang with friends, can't go to eat with family/friends, putting girls so far in the back of your mind that they almost don't exist, etc.
these days I still train 4-5x a week & I still kill myself in there to train hard, but really not even for physical appearance reasons...I just love to train, I love to challenge myself. It's my active meditation time. I put a hoodie on, crank music & turn off the world. Conor Mcgregor would always say that when he would get into the octagon for a fight that it felt like chains would be released from him & he would be set free. I get that same emotion before I train; for an hour or two I can turn the world off, or use bad things in my life as fire to push myself & exhaust myself to the point that those bad vibes go away. The impact bodybuilding has made on centering my mind & keeping me relaxed is something I'm forever grateful for.

It's all about finding the balance that works for you. If your heart is in to competing & you're willing to sacrifice a lot, it's worth doing a show one good time. If you're s genetic God & can make something out of it, then I say go further.
But the average dude can have a great body with 3 days a week in the gym as long as they train hard & eat well.

Didn’t watch the video but I have been eating healthy and working out religiously since 1997. At 38 years old I feel exactly the same if not better than I did in my early 20’s. I do not think working out and keeping yourself in shape is a waste of time. Nothing motivates me more than seeing the 60 and 70 year olds at my gym that still maintain an active life! One 70 something just went on a 14 day moose hunt in Russia... where he logged over 100 Miles of hiking over brutal terrain. That’s the reason I workout and keep myself in amazing shape... quality of life and longevity.

No way buddy, bodybuilding needs focus, courage, endurance, self motivation, hard work & dedication and pays u back a strong blend of less disease prone body, toned figure, attractive personality, self confidence , positive approach and infact loads of money if u enters into the fitness industry.

Bodybuilding is not fr losers.

As we all have heard that phrase ‘ A healthy mind resides in a healthy body’.

As far as waste of money is concerned, use of steroids and over the top use of protein supplements definitely leads to money waste.

The point of the video is men don't need to bodybuild and waste hours in the gym 5 6 times a week if they are not doing it competitively. The reason why is how hard it is on the joints, and a few other reasons

Havent watched the video so take my comment with caution but I am going to answer the question based on the title.

Bodybuilding or working out has been the single biggest catalyst in my life next to my mom dieing and reading the book of pook.

It taught me that hard work prevails all and that anything good in life takes consistent action everyday and that the smallest decisions can have the biggest impact down the road. The health and looks are the side effects.
+1

I've watchee guys transform thrir life from no baeeees to getting them all. Granted, these are outliers not the norm. Lifting should be about self care not necessarily bodybuilding unless that's your dream.

I truly believe that most people can look like Bradley Martin look him up on YouTube naturally. In fact, I believe he’s natural. Look at his mindset and you can accomplish ANYTHING. This isn’t witty fairy nullshir. This world is YOURS if you put in the work.

Agreed but the 4'9 incel is ****ed. No boot camp or tren will fix that. Guys need to play the hand tgey werr dealt.

I notice women reciprocate be it me shredded or me on a abulk cycle. Its funny how its a lot about mentality.
