I'm probablly the last guy to get going (probablly becuase I'm not great with the computer on these forums) introducing myself.
My name is Mark and I'm 21 years old from the Cleveland, Ohio area. I had a streak of great things happen to me over the last couple years...I met a great group of people and out of it have an amazing job, Bought my first home, I met the woman of my dreams as well as gained a son, and got married this past May and also found out that I was selected to be a part of Team MST 2008 which was awesome!
Not many people know that I was a fat kid growing up and then from ages 16-17 became an anorexic. It was at this point that I turned to bodybuilding to change my understanding of food and thus has changed my life forever!
I have started degrees in both criminal justice and sports nutrition (my specialty/hobby) and though on a hiatus at the moment, hope to finish in the near future!
My sport is Natural bodybuilding. I have been competing for 3 1/2 years now and have done 5 shows in the NGA and NPC. I have (1) NPC Northern USA Teen title & (1) NGA Teen title under my belt. I have placed 2nd in Novice Heavyweights and 3rd in Open Lightheavyweights.
My training style will be unique to this site, becuase I train exclusivley H.I.T on machines origianlly developed my Arthur Jones/Nautilus himself (of course evolved now, but same concept). I work for a exclusive High Intensity Personal Training company in Ohio (Overload Web Site) where we use state-of-the art Nautilus, Superslow, MedX & David equipment. My training will mostly consist of (2) full body workouts a week at ~ 20-25 minutes each. Basically 1-2sets to failure per bodypart peformed safely and correctly with thorough inroad achieved each time.
I will post weekly/biweekly pics of updated progress as well as maybe talk about my diet becuase again I am trying it a little different this season using the Metabolic Diet (for now... we'll see how it goes).
I am glad to be a part of MST, becuase I like the fact that they aren't spinning out a clone of every product out there right now. Just legit, tested supps that deliver! A patient company that I know will be huge in the near future.
