    You're body do you look at other men's bodies and try and compare theirs with yours.

    Personally I do not like my body when I look at my body i feel so skinny and emasculated. Like I have the body of a 14 year old

    I'm not happy with my body, I was the skinny one in my family when I was a kid.

    Eventually, I'll get the bod that I want, can't just sit around and do nothing. Currently doing the Insanity Max 30 program, it's a good workout.

    Hey guy. Welcome back. Still at Stanley's?

    I think anyone who seriously works out can never be totally happy with their body. I think I'm doing pretty good for my age but I think I can do better yet. I saw a Gold's Gym T-shirt with the slogan "Every Damn Day" on it and that pretty much summarizes it for me.

    I am. Even when I was super skinny I never had a problem with it. So many people complain about hating their body but don't want to get up and do something to change. Its perplexing.

    Also to the OP. Your upper body looks fine. Your problem is the fact that you skip leg day bro.

    I used to be a little self-conscious about being slim, when I was in my 20's. When I see people struggling with weight, I'm thankful. I've been a steady 165 pounds since I can remember.

    No and I never will be. I have body dysmorphia. It's amazing. Motivates me so much.

    I go back and forth. Some days I think I'm doing ok for a guy pushing 50 with no self-control when it comes to my diet. On the other hand, I always look around and compare myself to others and get a bit disappointed in myself. All-in-all, I'm ok with things though.

    The other day, some random called me a Twink.
    Which is probably more or less true. I've decided to be a better "version" of myself by being more active and doing some form of daily routine excercise; something to start me off. (Motivavtion is the hardest part though)

    So I would say, yes; I do get "envious" of other men's bodies (wishing that I had that) but then, knowing the type of person that I am, I know what I'd do with that body. Use once and destroy.

    I am happy with my body now. But I'll be happier when I'm healther and better constructed.

    When I'm in the gym, no.
    When I'm no this site, no.
    When I'm in the club, no.

    When I'm among my HS classmates, yes.
    When I'm with straight friends, yes.
    When I'm on the beach, yes.

    Making good progress but never satisfied. And I lost a lot of ground bc of my eye problems, and getting it back at an erm advanced age is tough. But I see guys on here, my age and older, with amazing bodies and realize I can do it.

    Am I happy with my body? Yes. Very. I'm in far better shape than most guys my age. I work at it. It's attitude, diet, exercise, good genes. I put in the work it takes to still be looking okay as the years pass. Any guy can do what I've done. I started out as a skinny kid. I wanted to play H2o-polo and was lucky to find a great coaching staff who helped me out by putting me to work with a lifting, swimming & diet routine. I've kept working at staying in shape although my playing years are long behind me. The results: I feel great every day, and when a few compliments come my way, well, those are good to hear as well. My partner's one very happy man (me too).

    It's hard not to compare yourself to others.. but it's also unrealistic to compare yourself to someone that's genetically different to yourself. For example, my body type will never be massive, I'll really only ever be well defined and fit.. so I have to keep that in mind when I'm making comparisons.. It might be trite, but you need to be the best 'you' that you can be.. and if you like big guys, just date one.

    I do not I did legs this Tuesday



    "Skip leg day, bro" is typically in reference to a guy's lower body development being outpaced by his upper. Can also refer to programs with higher variations and frequency in upper body movements, or even to weekly workouts. I've seen splits where there is one day of serious leg work with squats and hinges, but then the upper body is hit two or three days.

    Basically, if your lower body isn't being stimulated as much as the upper, then you're skipping leg day... brah.


    As for whether I am happy with my body:

    Overall I am happy with it when I look at how skinny I was back in the past to where I am now. I don't have that Abercrombie model 6 pack but what I have is good enough. Not overweight, not skinny, not perfect, JUST MEicon_cool.gif
