Just a little more about me. I am a father of a very energetic almost 2 year old boy. Something that I bring to the table here is 20 years experience in the weight room. I've trained for bodybuilding, which doesn't go too well when you have the metabolism of a horse. I was in the Marine Corps for 5 years, so I understand how to train unconventionally. And for he last few years I've trained for powerlifting (strength training). While I have not yet competed, I feel that powerlifting has taught me a great deal more than bodybuilding. Don't judge a book by its cover. Don't listen to critics. Do the research and experimentation on your own. Only you can figure out what works for you. My main reason for being here is that I don't want to be unhealthy anymore. I want to ensure the health of my family and get my wife healthy too.
