3 jobs. More then 30 developers and i have not been able to find one that is even slightly interested in lifting weights. What’s up with that?

    I worked in 3 projects in same company.

    150+ people.

    Not a single one interested in my kind of music.

    What's up with that?!

    In my experience, developers tend to choose something more fun and requiring less effort like football, running, cycling, skying, swimming... Also met someone who does boxing (I guess it qualifies as weight lifting too?). Anyway, at least in my eyes weight lifting is boring - you finish your day at the office, and then you go to another “office” to lift weights that require hell an effort and still it doesn’t feel “refreshing”.

    @gintko Its a mental stability for me, that and seeing progress feels good. I've got some insane compulsions and twitches which hard exercise is the only thing that settles them. But yeah weights can be boring at times. Honestly I have not had many athletic people in any of my offices. Its been really disappointing cause I hate the stereotype that developers get for not being active or going out or pushing physical limits.

    @BashouT dude climbing is an incredibly hard workout! I’d love to get into it more. Weights are great when your making progress but boring as hell compared to climbing
