Mkay, let’s talk srs for a moment. ‘cause every now and then, I get an influx of reblogs, and see #goals in some. It’s flattering, but also weird.
Sitting at around 22% BF, this is either the leanest, or close to the leanest I’ve been in a VERY long time. I don’t give a shit.
I don’t look like this for the aesthetic. I have a strong core and developed abs because I need them for stability in major lifts. My legs and ass look like this because I need to generate power and force. My arms and shoulders have shape so I can lock a barbell out overhead, and pull myself over a pullup bar.
I’m currently in a caloric deficit to cut weight so I can be a 69kg lifter, not a 75kg, because I don’t currently have the muscle mass to fill out 75kg.
I have identifiable and measurable goals I want to meet. I spend a lot of my free time training. Most of the time, it makes me happy. Somedays, it’s dragging myself through more squats sets, more accessory work, and feeling frustrated when what should be easy weights just aren’t moving right. But I’m still in the gym, working, because I want to get better.
My body looks right for what my goals are. Having strength related goals is what really moved me away from negative body image.
But guys and gals, don’t define your goals by someone else’s body. Literally every body develops muscle differently. Look for determination, purpose, happiness. They’re less fleeting that this flesh canoe.
**IN NO WAY do I mean any kind of negativity towards bodybuilding/physique competitors. Y'all are amazing**
