In Phase 2, we talked about the importance of exercise to retrain your body memory and elevate your mood, in order to survive the shock you go through when you break away from the gay scene.
Now we are in Phase 3 and exercise also relates to the impression you make on people with your physique. If you get through the "clearance" list and make it out of Phase 3, then you will start asking women out on dates. It is a myth that women don't care about how you look. But it is true that women are a little classier and more sophisticated in the way they size up men. (This is my theory, take it or leave it.) Women do not immediately want to see what your bare torso looks like--that is a tendency that was big in the gay world but not so much when you are seeking women. Rather, women usually want to see how your body fills up your clothes and whether you are a solid, energetic, stable, and formidable physical presence.
I talk through this a bit in this video. I will post more.
