    Middle-aged newbie

    Hello everyone! I've checked the place out and it seems you people have a lot of fun here, plus good advice on training, nutrition, etc...

    Got up this morning and had a 6 oz sirloin with about 3/4 cup of brown rice. 2 hours later did an hour and 45 minute chest workout with a few other things thrown in. Afterwards had a 6 oz. salmon with cottage cheese, then soon after, I strapped 5 lbs around each ankle and mowed the lawn with a push mower... approx 1-1/2 hours of pushing. Now I'm gonna ruin it all with a few ice cold beers!

    A few personal stats:
    Age: 46
    Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 200 lbs
    Waist: 32"
    Years training: 24 years off and on. 4-1/2 years martial arts (Shorinryu Kinshinkan Kabudo) back in the 80s.
    Profession: Computer Programmer for 23 years. Gotta do something to stay in shape. Also do some Web Programming and 3D Graphics.
    Marital Status: Single/Divorced. Looking for low maintenance female with nice a$$.
    Interests: Fitness, Computers, Music, RUSH (the Canadian rock band, not the fat guy).

    I have my own gym at the house which is nice because I can set the pace and the atmosphere... music, action movie, whatever....

    Looking foreward to getting to know you all, swapping ideas on training and nutrition, and just having some fun!

    Welcome. Glad to see a fellow fortysomething member. BTW, the beer was well deserved.

    Thanks for the welcome..!

    No kidding! After taking a cool shower, that first beer didn't last one single minute. I slammed that frosted mug quicker than a whey shake!

    Welcome Vital! Like your name and Avi. Enjoy it here
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...
