    What sports did you play prior to???


    What sports did my felloow Anabolic members play prior to bodybuilding?

    I began boxing at the age of 14 and won many amateur golden gloves matches. At that time I almost got a sparring match with Montell "ICE" Griffin ( the former light heavy weight champ). At that time Montell was a top amateur who was prepping for the Olympics.

    Then at 17 I played HS basket ball. At 5'10" I could slam dunk a basket ball with ease.

    So what sports did you guys play prior to bodybuilding?

    Nationally ranked triathlete, state ranked bike racer, ultimate frisbee player on team that finished second in the national collegate championships and professional traper.

    Not sure if that last one is a sport though

    We have some athletic brothers in here. It’s good to hear, as most people believe people who bodybuild or weight lifts like we do cannot do other sports.

    Now middle line backer is a position I'D LOVE. Never played football but if I were a football player I’d want to be a middle line backer. Those guys are cool because they are fast, strong and athletic.

    Signed up for football b/c the coach said I "looked" like I should play...didn't have grades to make it Wrestled and then again didn't have grades once the season started Played baseball and was really good, but hated it and I probably wouln't have had the grades anyway in HS

    Funny....I don't know how I graduated high school atall? And, I graduated early ? What's even more funny is that ever since I've been to college I've been on honor roll and have an open invitation to honors society, etc, deans list, blah, blah, blah....why didn't I just do it in HS?? Anyway, enough of that rant....

    How many of you guys who don't / didn't play ball constantly get asked if you do / did??? I get asked all the time. I've had a few new kids at school come up and ask me where I can find "coach" to try out for the team

    Played football DL (at 5'6" 212 no less ) won district my senior year, Track threw shotput and discus...but mostly discus and did powerlifting all 4 years of high school (did the best here). I would always catch hell from my powerlifting/football buddies because most of them were 5'10" and up and had the hardest time in powerlifting, while I was "built" to powerlift. Gotta love having the mechanical advantage.

    yo. I played in the second row.

    Being a bigger guy, I always prefered more "contact" but sadly, I could also run too so they kept my there to satisfy the craving for brutality

    good man houseman
    i love rugby it probably edges out football as my favorite sport, i loved being in the pack and playing flanker

    even though rugby did leave me with 2 horrible concussions, a 1st degree separated shoulder and a 3rd degree separated shoulder ... wish i still had time to play with a club, law school just takes up too much time

    Track, BB-ball and Soccer in H.S. Went on to run track in college on scholarship; went sub-1:50 in the half mile quite a few times. Ran sub-4:30 miles for fun while training...and somehow, through applied training, I've altered my bodytype now, seven years later.

    Now I primarily play soccer in the summertime, run a few road races a year, and a couple triathlons a year. But since I've taken to heavy lifting and bulking, my times are sucking!

    I never went lower than 1:49 outdoor. Best indoor was around 1:53, which got me some medals. BTW-->at that speed you don't even take a breath for the first 200 meters! And the last 200 are hell on earth. I think it is one of the most painful races. I was competitive in the 400 and 200 in high school, but not college.

    I never thought I could gain much muscle; now that I'm training differently, I've put on over 20 pounds this year, and I'm still 15% BF, so probably a net of 17-18 pounds.

    For guys who don't know this is IMPRESSIVE as HELL!


    Very nice bro.

    BTW, you may know this already but if you get up to 200lbs you can jump in the clydesdale division in triathlons. Then some of them have 225lbs and over. That is where I did my most recent ones but a SERIOUS injury 3 FREAKING years ago is still bothering me so not much action lately.

    However this summer I am going to do a relay team with my nephew and my brother. Should be good but I have to do the swim part since neither of them can swim to save their lives lol, which I am NOT looking forward to.

    I was a natrually strong runner, but I could have never done it without the help of some amazing, inspirational coaches and strong team leaders. They make the difference between pushing yourself 90% and taking your natural talent and dialing it up 125%. Of course I hated them for it at the time! Nothing like running till you puke and then having to do pyramid intervals afterwards b/c you weren't hitting your race pace! Good coaches and a solid program with team leaders everyone looks up to make all the difference...God knows there are a ton of gifted runners.

    I eventually burned out, and took four years off of everything, and I still regret that decision, to an extent. I was 18 when I went 1:52, 19 when I went 1:49. Wonder what I would be running now at 29 (as of today), had I not stopped. People who stick with college athletics the whole way through have dedication I admire and am envious of!

    I'm 210 right now, so it looks like I'll be a Clydesdale from here on out--thanks for the tip!

    5A high school Football I started Defensive Tackle and started at guard half the time. Had a few scholarship offers to division 3 schools for collage, but decided to play a year at a community college and see if I could get a D1 scholarship. Played middle linebacker, got burnt out after a season and stopped playing football altogether. The step from high school to collage for me was a big one, everyone was much bigger, faster and stronger. I still kind of miss playing today though.

    Hehe How do I follow that?

    Anyway- I played football(outside linebacker and fullback) in high school. Went in the Corps for 5 years instead of college, got out and still had the bug so I played semi-pro for a couple of years. God I love football...
