I don't care what others think if I want to go without a shirt on.since I'm in Arizona it's more comfortable that way

Hi Mark..going shirtless is not something only fit guys are entitled to. Any guy can go shirtless. Certainly being/looking fit can boost self confidence but you don't have to be Mr Olympia to walk around shirtless. Do whatever feels comfortable, as long as it's

I have been going shirtless more around the house than I used to.  I'm so self conscious because of my big gut but since I've been going to the gym my chest is looking a little better.  But I'm starting to think that I don't have to be super muscular to go shirtless.  It's just what men like to do.  What do you all think?

Since it got about 95 degrees today, I got to really enjoy spending time with my shirt off again. Don't plan on putting one back on unless I absolutely have to. I'd rather have the permanent shirtless lifestyle starting tonight

I'm readjusting to the shirtless lifestyle very well. Last time I wore a shirt at home was back in January when it was too cold

it's no vbig deal for me to answer the door with no shirt on, and most of the time it is UPS or FedEx with a package.  But even if it's not, I generally don't put a shirt on unless it's a lady or certain family that I know are coming.

Hey Paul - I'll guarantee part of what you're feeling is the release of endorphins after exercising.  Next to the pump, it's the next best thing.  Good luck with your routine!

I'm working on a 3 month bulking programme, followed by a 3 month cutting programme. Look forward to the results. After one week of diet and lifting, I already feel more awake, alive and in control!

Celebrating Change

My childhood past had a definite impact on my adult life:  anxiety with some PTSD and ADD characteristics, communication and relationship challenges and a pervading sense of alienation and disconnect.  But it has also been a gift.  I see beyond what happens and understand the reasons and the emotional impact it can have.  I am learning to step into the role of healer not just directed to my past and self but others around me.  I can do this because I empathize but am no longer willing to carry…See More
