I don't know if anyone saw this story...but I thought it was kind of cool.

In a sense, I could imagine that if I were living in a war zone, I'd like to do bodybuilding because:

 

A) Being big is useful

B) Bodybuilding brings a peace of mind

C) Working out might bring a sense of normalcy

I agree with all those except reasons for the first one. In a war time situation I cant see how being REALLY BIG is useful. I wouldnt be intimidated at all if some guy who was all muscly started running at me if I had a AK-47 on my back.

 

Once again, this is in war time. Getting muscle and being stronger will help in every situation, but being TOO big from weight lifting can hurt if you get shot and wounded, and needed to be taken away with your comrade's dragging you. All of a sudden all that extra muscle becomes a burden

 

Great find by the way

I agree!

 

Here's another part to the story:
