"It looks to me like the traits we admire in young can be summed up in the words virtue.  The root word of virtue is the Latin word "Vir", which means manliness.  interestingly, to me at least, I discovered this site while doing…"

Ivan S replied to Liam Hirst's discussion Turning 16 tomorrow... any advice?
"Hi Liam,   Turning 16 is a pivotal moment in a young man’s life, at least it was in mine. You’re at a moment in which you’re trying to discover who you are. I believe you should cut yourself some slack, though; you’re…"

"There a many great traits listed here to take into ones character. All I can really add is a healthy dose of humility. The ability to say, "I don't know everything and believe you have something worth while to teach me," goes a very…"

"Conviction-Stick to your guns, whether it be your beliefs, values, personal style, or what have you. Trends, politics, what is "cool" are constantly in flux, and younger men are especially vulnerable to this, having perhaps not found their…"

"Well said. Like you said, height is not something we can control, but there are other more meaningful aspects we can change that ultimately make us a better person."

"To me, cussing when you bang your head or get cut off by another driver is healthy. But walking along in a public place, loudly dropping the f bomb when all I really mean is "gee", is not manly, it's coarse."

To skip the point, I'm not certain on how to have a decent workout and what defines someone as physically strong. Though I'm not entirely sure of what I can do (or what my max is), the last amount of weight I've squatted was 205 lbs. which doesn't seem to be a lot since I believe most people can squat twice their weight (I weight 234 lbs. or so). I did 10 reps of…See More
