I’m nerd skinny. It used to bother me, now it doesn’t. I’m reasonably active, but I don’t work out. I score very well on my annual Air Force fitness test, which is the only time of the year that I lace up my running shoes. That’s not saying much, as the fitness standards are very lax. I eat what I want but I don’t eat much. I’m in my early 30s and I’ve maintained my present weight, give or take 5 pounds, for more than 10 years.
Sometimes I find myself wanting muscles. Since I don’t really have any fat to lose, I’d just need to start lifting weights, which I hate.
Is this a noble goal? I’m not talking about getting ripped, I’m just talking about eliminating the classic nerd sunken chest and maybe having enough bicep to fill out the sleeves on extra small t-shirts.
Good for my health? Worth the effort? Exercise in vanity? I feel like I’m at a point in my life where I could finally will myself to bulk up, if I really wanted to. I’m just not sure I want to.
