Like I said before, you know you’re going somewhere in bodybuilding when you’re getting a lot of compliments on your physique. I’ve been getting a lot of that lately. I’ve been getting compliments from mostly friends, family and acquaintances. I sometimes get compliments from complete strangers as well. I get a lot of people telling me: “Wow, you’re looking good”, “You’re looking really buffed lately”, “You’re getting bigger each time I see you”, etc. I get stuff like that.
You know how I respond to compliments? I try to keep it as humble as possible… when people tell me you’re looking buffed, I simply say something like, “I’m trying” and then I just laugh. When people tell me, “You’re getting bigger”, I just respond with something like, “Thanks, I really work hard and doing the best I can”. That’s how you want to respond to compliments ’cause you don’t want to be an arrogant jerk about it, ya know?
I love getting compliments on my physique. I can’t tell how my physique looks and I just let other people do the judging. I’ve had a lot of people look at me with wide eyes and they’re like, “Wow, look at you”. I’ve gotten a lot of that lately too.
All of this positive feedback of what I’m doing in the gym is what’s motivating me to keep going to the gym. It’s what’s helping push to the limit and go at it 4 days a week non-stop. I don’t know… maybe I should compete in a bodybuilding competition, lol… I’m actually kind of thinking about that but I think I’m too old for that kind of dream, though. I’m too old to be a fitness competitor or a fitness model or whatever. That’s okay… I just want to look great and feel great. I’m at a great time to be doing bodybuilding in my 40’s ’cause I want to try and have a really ripped physique when I’m 50 or 60. Could I look like Sly, Arnold, JCVD and Dolph when I’m 60? That’s pretty much my goal really. You’re never too old to have a muscular physique, though.
I’ve always wanted to have a muscular physique for many years and it’s finally working for me. I’m not gay at all, I’m 100% straight and love women but seeing all these muscular guys helped piqued my interest in bodybuilding and I’m going after that look myself. People didn’t think I could do it but I’m doing it and proving the doubters wrong.
