    Methinks 80% of the male population are average/fat in build throughout the world. Was reading on this comments thing that "most of those workout guys are fags...name me one that isn't."

    I was reading this and it sounded like the words of a fat/outta shape straight guy angry cause his girl/wife likely left him for another.

    Thing is, why would you not like working out? Sex is 100% better, you can do so much more! And that's for both men and women, gay or straight! Why would you want to be fat, unhealthy, bad posture, low energy, impotent, and have to take countless medications?

    While most people walk to the office, I jog/run. At my desk, I sit on an exercise ball and I do situps/pushups all day..they all walk by looking weird at me...lolicon_lol.gif needless to say I couldn't give a fuck less.

    Thoughts?

    If you were more humble about it.. you'd probably get people at the office on board with you.

    Sitting on an exercise ball at work is one thing because it could be considered a means of creating a more ergonomic workstation, but if you're doing pushups and situps in an office environment of course you're going to be looked at funny, and people will think you're either a fanatic, can't manage your time, or both - and work is the one place you should care about what people think of you. Here? Not so much.

    Lots of straight guys who are serial daters are also big gym goers.

    Also, lots of people in developing countries have good bodies because they have to engage in back-breaking physical labour every day. Unfortunately they don't have smartphones so there is no way to see their n00dz icon_sad.gif

    I agree with you post.

    I occasionally go straight clubs with a good (male) friend. I'm not there to cruise guys but you can't help but notice how few guys you would look at and think "f_ck he's hot". When I have a night out at a gay club, there is invariably at least 5 or 6 guys in the club who are beyond hot. And aside from those guys, there's a whole lot more in the club who are still very good looking.

    Gay men are way more focused on how other guys look than women are focused on how straight men look. Gay men respond to that by working out to look good.

    Try this (I have) - take a really good looking friend with you to a gay club and watch how many guys turn and look at him. Take the same friend to a straight club and see how many female heads turn. Women are far less interested in physique. Women are more worried about other stuff - would he be a good father? has he got a college degree? how much does he earn? would my folks and friends like him?

    IMO, if you don't work out, you're probably not gonna get lots of attention from gay men. Sounds harsh but I think that is a reality.

    Doubtful. I've tried to get people to workout with me, and you can't force people into it, no matter how much you encourage them. It's like trying to make an alcoholic stop drinking. They have to want to stop.

    I think in-shape people have just as much a right to talk about their lifestyle as a writer who goes on the radio and discusses their writing process.

    You'd have to be jealous to want to silence people who are trying to share their advise and experience.icon_idea.gif

    I don't think he meant to never talk about it. I think he meant stop being a douche about it.

    They're typically jealous of your accomplishments and unmotivated to achieve their own

    Well think about it...the majority of gay men aren't married with children. That's usually when straight men start letting themselves go because they have a family and kids to take care of - their priorities change.

    RJ is really the only place I ever talk about fitness and skincare, because it's such a prickly subject for most people. No one likes to hear about someone else's workout routine, unless they are workout partners, because it sounds like bragging.

    Working out is a lifestyle, and it takes dedication. I'm guessing that fitness is on the OP's mind at all times, and it's hard not to talk about it. He probably can't help but workout while at the office, just like smokers HAVE to go on smoke breaks in order to be productive. It would probably torture him to be prohibited from his habit.

    I can understand that. If something is at the top of your mind 24/7 and everyone around you resents you for talking about it, it's easy to become defensive and/or preachy and start acting a like douche about it, especially if you think you're trying to help others.

    Very true, I have seen men coming from their plantation who I know are in their mid 70s with ripped bodies, you swear they were 25 if you did a headless picture. Problem is, you can see the age and rough life in their faces though and they are hard drinkers too. Its understandable, farm work here is hard.

    Generally among people that are fit, a bigger percentage of them tend to be single than do people who are not fit, which might explain why a bigger percentage of gay men are fit than are straight men. Among the adult population, more gay men are single than are straight men, and gay men tend to become coupled later in life compared to straight people, which also explains why gay men tend to be fit later in life. A lot of people seem to give up on fitness once they become attached.

    Talking about what you do is not douchy.
    Urging others to follow your example, or shaming them for not doing it, is douchy.

    I've heard straight people say that a woman will pick a man hoping she can change him, and a man will pick a woman hoping she'll never change. By that logic, letting yourself go is not the way to keep a man.

    agree. I personally think that diet, sleep, and stress management is more determinant than exercise/going to the gym. Sorry, it's my pet peeve when people equates the act of "going to the gym" equates healthy. Health has a lot more factors into that, and gym certainly isn't majority. It is recommended to workout at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes, where, there's other 23 hours and 30 minutes in a day that can affect an individual's health too.

    Um, what is this "really good looking friend" you're talking about? What criteria fits into this description. Im going to assume that there's a very attractive version for every body build.

    I think guys work out for the wrong reasons, and most of the time they are still unhappy and alone at the end of the day. Do it for you, not so you can get guys.

    Often, I'll walk into the gym,
    mosey my way over to the free weights,
    marvel at how ripped everyone is,
    look at my own body in the reflection,
    get motivated to get results,
    pick up a dumbbell,
    do one curl if its a good day then two,
    pussy out at the first sign of fatigue,
    get ice cream.

    This.

    I personally don't find working out to be particularly fun. At least not the "sit ups, going to the gym, weights, etc" type working out. I do it because if I don't, I drop weight, and I'm already skinny enough.

    But, get me talking about going out on the trails either hiking or biking? I could talk for hours and would drag my best friend or my worst enemy out, just to share it with them.... and neither one would be interested. icon_lol.gif

    I go to the gym purely to look better and catch hotter guys. It's a chore. I couldn't give a rat's ass about my health and fitness. Most people who claim otherwise are lying.
