    Just reaching six feet. My standing reach is quite high however, so that tends to help me out with the dunking, but holds me back with hypertrophy gains.

    true, but that's why you need a gym with tellies

    ok most of it is daytime tv crap when I go but occasionally they put on channel 5 and I've caught the odd episode of House through that

    (i HATE gyms when they only play music channels)

    The long and short of it is that I enjoy it. Of course sometimes I don't want to be there and I have to drag myself along but that's necessary in order to be consistent. I'm motivated by increasing my lifts, but if I didn't actually enjoy the time I spent in the gym I wouldn't be doing it.

    Seriously though, these days I just train for fun. Nothing like coming home from a long day and hitting the weights.

    I just want to feel better about myself.
    I mean, I guess I sort of like my thin frame (sort of), but I know the opposite sex doesn't so much, and I'd like to look better in clothes anyway

    I love training. Love the feeling in the gym, on a pump after doing a dropset on your chest or something.

    Started so I would look good though, still my main goal really.

    Mainly to help with sports, more recently for joint stability, but also the sense of achievement (cheesy, but true)
