Most of the time the media and the populace in general get BB and working out mixed up with vainity. Lots of people workout only to pick up the ladies and/or to be able to admire themselves in the mirror 24/7. I know most people on this board though concerned with their appearance (it's the nature of the beast) it is not the main driving force to do so. For me though I like looking big (well bigger) I use appearance more as a benchmark of how I'm doing.
