  1. Welcome To Anabolic Minds! Introduction Thread!


    Hey guys!

    I've noticed quite a few introduction threads popping up recently and thought it would be a good idea to get one thread up for new members to come in and introduce themselves.

    So... if you're a new member and or newish, hell, if you're a veteran here introduce yourself! This should serve as a get-to-know the Anabolic Minds Family thread!

    We all remember what it was like to first start posting on the forum or to lurk for a while before dipping your toe in, hoping to not get flamed, haha!

    We here at Anabolic Minds, want EVERYONE to feel welcome! Just starting out, vets, weekend warriors, even crossfit enthusiasts. Anabolic Minds as a community, aims to make this a place where people aren't excluded but feel welcome to ask a question that they think may be a silly one.

    Come on in guys! Introduce yourselves and see what AM is all about! The members around here, vets or otherwise have a ton to contribute as I'm sure you all do as well!

    Tell us why you're here, your goals, how you started out, aspirations for what you hope to accomplish long term or short etc. Whatever you feel is relevant for us to get to know you!

    I'll go first!

    I go by Spaniard around these parts. I've been a firefighter for ten years now. I've been working on getting my degree for a while but have jumped around to many different majors within this industry to find my niche. I think I've finally settled on biochemistry hahaha

    I got into lifting when I was younger because I was tiny! Then I started to notice the changes that I was able to make with a little dedication and have been hooked ever since. I've been around here for a while and have a decent amount of experience, so if you ever have any q's feel free to hit me up!

    I'm looking forward to meeting all of you and hope that this will be just one small piece that helps you achieve your goals!

    Awesome thread!!!

    Heyyyyy, I go by puccah and it's actually my dog's name! 🐕
    😁 I am from California and I'm 33 years old! 🙊 I am currently getting my degree in Accounting and I'm an Office Manager. 😁😁 I got into fitness because I couldn't roll my fat a** off the couch one day and I told myself that I couldn't live like that anymore. During that time, my 8 year relationship also ended and I wanted a new start. 5 years later, here I am. As many of you know, this "fitness life" is not an easy journey but it is definitely one worth taking!!!! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻😍😍

    5 years ago, who would have thought....

  4. Hi I'm Kat. I am an orthodontic assistant and specialty cake maker on the side. 32, married and have 2 kids. I grew up overweight. It wasn't until I was 27 that working out ever even crossed my mind. So as you can imagine, I was clueless on what to do. I tried every fad/yoyo diet out there with the typical unsuccessful results. After 1-2 years in the gym I slowly started trying actual workouts and investing time/effort into learning about lifting. I fell in love with lifting and learning about it all. Over the years I have lost over 70lbs and 30% bf...but I'm no where near done! Still a work in progress in every aspect of life! ImageUploadedByAnabolicMinds1430352209.529709.jpg

  20. Hi, I'm Anthony, or Phillip on Facebook. I can't let students look me up now! I have been training since I was 18. I am 26 now. I have been apart of this forum for a while now. I just finished student teaching and was offered a sub position for the rest of the year. I was planning on competing in a bodybuilding show in the summer of 2013, but was hospitalized and how to undergo a heart transplant. I still have me eyes set on competing

    Do you have a log going on or anything? If you don't mind me asking why the need for the transplant, if preferred, you can pm me.

    I'd really like to follow along in your log and think that you should def shoot to get on stage again buddy

    I do not have a log. It was a genetic cause. The doctors found 3 mutations when they did a biopsy on the old heart. They ruled out one, but not the other two. They would need bloodwork from my father's side of the family to further determine what happened. I never had contact with that side of the family. They do not want to go for blood work. But the doctors know it is from my father's side and only affects men. My father and his brother passed from heart complications at an early age which is how they came to that conclusion. My mother does not have the defect.

  24. Hey, I'm Brandon. My wife and I are personal trainers and our main goal is to look good naked. We're both striving for big backs, round shoulders and a trim waist. Learning about the science is a big thing for us.

  27. Ok so I've been on here for a week or two, and I've tried searching around and couldn't come up with a conclusive answer or solution.

    Why can't I view signatures, now before you say go to settings, I have went to settings and it is selected that I should be able to view signatures. Still nothing, can't see my own, can't see other peoples. I am on an iPhone 6 with the current os

    Secondly, I see people post links and pictures but when I try it says you must have 5000 posts, yet the people I see posting links and pics do not have 5000 posts.

    In my searching I saw there used to be a pay for premium upgrade feature is this still in effect? I could not find a place to do that.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
