    Being shite at benching. I will not let it defeat me. I will never give up until I defeat it.

    Thing is you're not shite.
    You're just comparing yourself to elite level and tbh 95% of this forum would be delighted with a 160kg+ bench.

    Training is a way of clicking life's hold switch and clearing my head.

    Routine gives my day clarity and purpose.

    Lots of little short/medium term goals ie holiday, competition etc

    But the underlying drive is health and the fact that our bodies are there to be USED. Additionally I love artistry and flair so the idea of being able to change the look of my physique through training and eating fascinates me.

    Originally I just wanted to get aesthetic and have a six pack. But, since starting work I have let myself go in terms of basic vanity and going to the barbers all the time etc (although I want to change that because I think my responsibilities have taken over my life).

    The main actual drive for me nowadays is the sporting motivation, I just want to get as strong as possible, gain more muscle and hopefully compete in a natural bodybuilding competition one day. I actually love going to the gym and lifting the weights. It's the continuous cooking and eating that I am not so motivated by.
