Started when I was 15 at the begining of freshman year. Started benching 89 pounds at was at 175 by the end of the year. Just started getting serious with diet, supps, ect the last 8 months or so. I was involved with boxing and then MMA for many years but due to a couple of major injuries I dont think Ill be able to fight anymore. Ive switched my attention to weights now

I started hitting the weights seriously about 8 months ago. 27 and FFFFFAAAAATTTT, I was 250 lbs at 5'10". Let's just say I was stretching 38 pants.
Anyway, I'm down to 180 and about 18% BF, that is more than enough motivation to keep doing this for the rest of my life.

Lemme preface by saying I was never active, I hated sports of all kinds and somehow managed not to fail PE in high school. That being said, I started lifting 9 months ago when I was 41.

Started in Feb of this year, at the age of 46. I've always been into sports and fitness, but weights are now obsessive passion for me. I'm still learning, but finding the payback is so motivating.
