If your job requires you to be strong ( i.e. construction, landscaping, farm work, etc.), just working that job will get you in the shape you need to be.
There's a difference between looking like a Greek God statue, and being strong. Take the example of the barrel-chested farmer, with no muscle definition, who can throw around any gym buff. The opposite can also be true. I know a guy who is average height, thin, but is basically muscle and bones. He doesn't lift weights, just uses his body weight for exercise. Well, he's one of the strongest people I know, pound for pound.
The key is understanding your body type, and exercising accordingly. That, and staying active ( this includes Yoga, as it has been called "exercising while being still").
@Stormblood - Here's our long-awaited thread on working out, I guess BTW, I like your new avatar pic. I've always been a fan of all cats, big or small...lions especially.
Nothing for your legs? Maybe you do stairs a lot or walk while carrying some weight like in your backpack? That alone strengthens the legs anyway.
Yes, we finally got a thread. And about the picture... I found amusing how this is a representation of Gilgamesh in a Japanese show. The Lion is awesome, yes.

I saw a documentary with a woman who starved herself and lived in a sweat suit for several days before her fight. Guess what, she lost. She was obviously feeling miserable.That's just insane. Martial arts, bodybuilding or whatever - it should be done for the sake of physical and spiritual health, nothing else. Name is Enochian BTW!
Go figure what's mental hang-ups they might have. It takes nothing more than common sense to understand how dehydration is bad. Not to mention that it weakens performances. When you are subject to an increased physical stress, you should drink more not drain yourself of water hahaha Name is awesome, eagle of blood. The closest translation of mine would probably be constcnila.
