I'm at the point where I'm kinda getting sick of weightlifting. I reached all my goals that I set 6 years ago when I first started out. I used to weight 165 lbs at 5'8'' and I've hit 220 lbs last year. I hit 325 for a max bench, 425 for max squat and 435 for dead lift. I'm questioning why I even do this to myself. Am I ever going to need to throw these kind of numbers around in real life? My job definitely doesn't require it. Also, I don't look physically appealing being this big at my height. For short people, we look like trolls lol. What keeps you motivated? I might just stop lifting and get back down to around 170.
