    new to this forum


    Been around other sites just seeing what else is out there. I am 39 and have been lifting for ever! Since about 15! I have never been happy with my size but everyone around says that I am huge. Don't consider myself to be but I enjoy the compliments. Have a lot of experience with workouts, diet, supplements have experimented with others. Don't know everything but willing to help all.

    Just wanted to chime in here too myself. I too am 35 years old and am currently taking part in the P90X program along with some variations of Billy Blank and weight training. I have to say I remember saying to myself before I was 30 that I was going to be in the best shape of my life by then. Seeing that I missed that mark, I'm back on schedule before I hit 40, haha. I originally started on the Beachbody.com site then found Bodybuilding.com and recently found this site. It looks like you have a really great forum here with some great people! I look forward to communicating with some of you in the future.

    It's going alright so far. I tend to switch it up a bit, so I probably couldn't give all the credit to the P90X program to this point. But things are going pretty good. I've managed to drop over 40 lbs of fat since the middle of October last year. I'm sorta a suppliment fanatic of sorts too. I'm always looking for some new thing to try out. Im going to try this sample I got from bodybuilding.com called "white flood" before I work out. But so far I'm pretty happy with my improvements. The toughest thing sometimes is staying focused.. Damn ADD!! hahaha!!

    Welcome over Jayburd... Definitely take a look around. Some areas are much more visited than others but there's plenty of information as well as helpful members than would be more than happy to lend a hand in reaching your goals or just providing motivation.

    Welcome guys there are some good experienced people around here. I like this place cuz it's easier to learn in a non-hostile environment. People here will disagree but are pretty civil for the most part.

    Hey All,,,figured I'd post here instead of making a new thread....Sorry for the ramble,,just need some advice,,,I'm 40,,5'10 185,,,in the past 8 months I've lost 40 lbs,,light exercise and walking,,,never really was in the gym,,,but for the last 3 months been w/o at home. I joined a local gym,,and take no supps,,,Now I have a younger friend of mine that is kinda trying to steer me towards a tren cycle which I know nothing about. As far a building block starter supp program should it be more of the protein, creatine multi vitamin way?? or should I research this tren issue further,,,it kinda scares me,,,thanks for the advice

    Wow in the gym 3 months and does not do supps and you have a person trying to tell you to do steroids. Yah I would steer clear of your friend. Research natural alternatives, get your diet ready give it some time before you start supps but in the meantime research...
