Do you lift? What do you lift? What do you lift?  When do you lift? Where do you lift? How do you lift? Why do you lift?

Yes
Kettlebells
Weights
When I'm awake
In my bedroom
With my arms
Want to pretend atrophy can be stymied

More seriously though, should I lift something? What do you get from it other than being able to lift women and 24 packs of magners a bit more impressively? Loads of people seem mad into it, is it good for cardio or summat? Or is it just that it's an easy thing to set goals for?

Endorphins!

Anyone who says they do exercise for any other reason is a filthy liar. It's drugs without the drugs!

You'll get admiring looks and lingering glances from other men, which is nice.

It’s given me something to talk to the fit men in my office about. One young student placement guy (must be about 20 years old ffs) is very strong, saw him overhead pressing 75kgs on Saturday.

Lifting heavy weights in the office can be quite dangerous, and a breach of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. I hope he moved any obstructions out of the way and bent his knees first.

Squat, push, pull, hinge and a bit of cardio. Job done. At the very least that should go some way to preventing you being a liability in later life.

I don’t have a liftrig at home so most days it’s office for me followed by hitting up the gym for a few reps of squatface and twenty nine, thirty sets of compound chupa chups and finishing it all off with some intense knees knees knees knees knees, always cranking my Zune to Lighthouse Fam’s Lifted mixes.

Liftin's good. No gym required. Set of adjustable dumbbells and a simple bench -that's all you need.

I like lifting, it gives me something to do of an evening. Focuses the mind, work/life stress is replaced with 'will I shit myself with the strain?'  And you get all sweaty, which makes you feel like you've achieved something. Sometimes I can't lift the thing I'm meant to, and I think 'well, I'll try again next time'.

Can't say I feel healthier at all, but then I don't do any cardiovascular things, apart from cycling to and from work but that only takes about 15 minutes each way.

Why is it just called lifting now, and assumed that people are talking about tailor made exercise equipment rather than reams of printer paper or whatever? Do you lift? Yes, when something low needs to be less low.

We used to call it throwing weights in my day, and we never shortened it to just “throwing”, because we understood that if you weren’t specific people might have assumed you were talking about kitten hurling.

Was once "pwnt" on the old NeoGAF when I tried to encourage someone who wanted to go to the gym and intended to use the machines as he didn't have anyone to spot him and felt a bit intimidated. I told him to just go have fun. Sure, you won't get 100% out of it, but as long as you're doing something positive, you'll feel a lot better for it.

But, no. I was told that the machines shouldn't be used UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, that he wouldn't get properly strong and that free weights are the only way and that if you aren't maximising your workouts, you might as well not even bother going at all The lad then posted that maybe he'd not bother then. Not worth the hassle.

WELL DONE WEIGHTS NAZIS. GOD FORBID SOMEONE EXERCISE FOR FUN.

Main issue with most machines is that your dominant side tends to take over and do most of the work. I'm seriously not joking when I say this but my right arm got huge from wanking so dumbbells mean I can even things up a bit.
