Monday's aren't so bad after the home team wins! Next stop...Green Bay!
Anyway...Steve here...from the Seattle area obviously! I'm new to the board here and I look forward to seeing if I can absorb any good info!
I've turned 47 recently...been lifting consistently for nearly 11 years now...I got a bit of a late start.
A lifelong skinny guy, I started lifting in Feb of 97 and haven't stopped since! At that time I was 5'10" and about 165 with a bit of grey hair....and now I'm same height, but weigh in at 185 lbs with completely white hair!
I'm a real hard gainer, and don't have any desire to be a bodybuilder...but I get off on being strong and bein' a freak!
I've had 1RM of 415 in the squat, 260 bench, and 315 in my deadlift. As well as 115 straight bar curl, and 16 wide grip pull ups. I also do all kinds of weighted dips and pull ups...plyometrics, and play racquetball. I don't much care for being a cardio monkey.
So...yay for me. I'm proud of my accomplishments, but don't really get off on telling all about em...but...it's a weightlifting forum eh??
Anyway, I like to lurk, read posts, etc...so that's pretty much why I'm here.
