    Becuase I am a competative ******* and I will never view a beauty contest as a sporting event.

    I have competed in:

    Boxing - Semi finals of the ABA championships
    Shut Putt - County Finals
    Rugby Union - Played in the 1st Division
    and now Powerlifting - best placing 6th in worlds

    and becuase of this:

    Those pumped-up specimens sincerely believe that they’re admired by the rest of the members and looked upon as supermen by the general public...Since they’re not strong and don’t use their muscles for any reason other than to gratify their own egos they’re no more than physical abominations – facades fakes – for muscles equal strength, and if a person doesn't have sufficient strength to back up those showy muscles, he’s a joke.

    Serotonin balancing? Healthy diet and exercise just make you feel a whole lot better most of the time. Looking good comes as a corollary, I think.

    Not really for power/strength. Purely for having a good torso, for my girlfriend to see during sex and also for when on beaches/swimming pools.

    Like the feeling of being healthy, and for the obvious appearance factor.
    This, and also being able to compete in marathons, etc.
    Plus, somebody mentioned being able to eat more..
