seriously though if I wouldn't have found weightlifting I probably would have stopped lifting a long time ago. I find the vapidness of bodybuilding and all this shit extremely high.
before you go all apeshit on me, I'm not putting down people who do it, I just personally find little in it to interest me.

I kind of agree with this (if I understand you correctly).
You probably notice by my posts that I read a lot about the technical aspects and theories related to lifting, diet, mobility and that sort of stuff.
I have to keep myself intellectually stimulated (in lack of better explanation) in whatever hobby I have or I'll lose interest. Maybe a reason to why all the russian programs with intensity percentages and specific macro manipulations in my diet interests me.
I have a hard time to just "go and lift" because I simply don't find that approach very engaging.
