    What are you?

    Where is your MAIN focus?

    1.) Power Lifter (srength)
    2.) Bodybuilder (physique)
    3.) Weight Lifter (OLY)
    4.) Strong Man (event)
    5.) Just a Lifter (recreational)

    This could be a fun poll if a MOD wants to add one.

    I see myself more as a bodybuilder. I still want to be strong but my overall goal is to have a overall bigger physique and still be lean.
    age: 21

    height: 6'3

    weight: 175

    short term goal: 200

    Long term goal: Lean 225

    I think I lean towards a Powerlifter! I want to be nasty strong! I don't want to be a fat pig like I am now but i don't care about seeing my abs! I would be really happy about 230 with mid teens body fat and being part of the 300/400/500 club! I think that makes me a powerlifter? I also wanna hit the golf ball further! LOL!

    I am not just a lifter because I do not do this for recreation, I do it for health.

    What I am is a fat weak unhealthy person looking to make a change.

    Mix between PL and BB, although I am leaning towards BB right now. Once I get all this fat chopped off, and am down to a good weight, I'll probably go into PL, since I'd be able to look strong, and be strong, without the worry of building up certain muscles for competition.

    Just a lifter.
    I don't have any desire to compete in any sort competitions.
    I want to be healthy and reduce my risk of injury in other sports.
    I want all the ladies to look at me when I walk by.
    I enjoy lifting as a recreational activity. I would rather lift than watch a crappy TV show or movie.

    I am 100% in it for physique so I guess that would be considered bodybuilder. I don't compete but would like to someday. I seem to be fairly decent at it- the diet thing an all. I'm OCD by nature.

    While I have strength (powerlifting) goals and physique (bodybuilding) goals, I'm not looking to be one or the other. I'm just a lifter.
