Why do people work out if it hurts?

“The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to . . . conquer”-Arnold Schwarzenegger

Every time I work out, I hurt afterwards. I don’t injure myself because I have good technique, but working out shouldn’t feel good. I am literally tearing down my muscles hoping that they will get stronger. So why do I do it? Some people do it because they want to get jacked, some do it to impress people, others just want to be healthy. I do it because the pain I have to put myself through is worth it when in the end I’m better than the competition. I do it because my team is relying on me and I don’t want to let them down.

No doubt I want to be healthy and I want to look hot for the ladies, but being better than my competition outweighs all it. I want to win. I used to hate working out because it would make me feel like crap, but after I realized everything its done for me I haven’t missed a day.

To answer the question, the reason people still workout  even though it hurts is the drive to get better. I want to be the best at everything I do and I am always trying to achieve that. THAT is why I work out.

I work out so this. . .
