So First off i wanna Thank You for stopping by my Log on the way to my Life Changes, Goals, Dreams and anything else that i believe to come my way in life!
So now its story time!
Name is Donald G. Sams(I go by DG) born almost 27yrs ago, and im what would be classified as a Ectomorph! Standing at 6'1 and SKINNY! I have been lifting for 5yrs in total! First 2yrs were on and off due to being sick which ill mention more about in min, and the last 3yrs have been soild training and trying to get my muscles to grow and "POP" lol
So back to why i was on and off for the first 2 yrs of lifting. Well as i stated i was "sick". Not your normal sick tho, i have Crohns Colitis, and its very sever which means its been hard to control and keep me somewhat "stable"! Crohns complicates many things, and is part of why its SOOO hard for me to gain mass not to mention already being an ecto. I have had it, or well diagnosed since i was 10years old. Many Trips in and outta the hospital here in Idaho and in Utahs Primary Childerens, couple times close to deaths door, poked and prodded more times then anyone would want to imagine, used as a test baby for a couple drugs one of which im still on(remicade), and many many other things. Sooo you can say, ive grown up being a hell of a fighter to say the least! My attitude is nothing less then amazing and i know this. Anyone who knows me will tell ya as well! I live min to min, hr to hr, day to day, month to month and year to year with this and have overcome things that not many can imagine, let alone do! If you would like to know more about my "condition" or Crohns/Colitis PM me. A couple guys on here know what it is since they are in the medical field and a couple have family or friends with it!
So now im on my own adventure of lifting, and trying to build mass the best way i know how, and thats to learn as much as i can and apply it to myself with the understanding that i will come out on top one way or another!
That said, i love to learn about everything and anything that will help myself and others which in turn will help me to teach others! So if you have any type of advise you would like to give, pls, i invite you to give it, but i ask, give it in a respectful manner!
Not a bad intro, no? Ok then.... Lets start this journey off with a
