T Nation

Fake Old Tough Guy's Log

After all these years lurking i thought it may be a good time to start a log.

I was Pro wrestler when i still had cartilige. I’m a 51 year old retired PO. ( I had a heart attack when i was 38. I’m on blood thinners. so they put me out to pasture) I’m now a struggling actor up in Massachusetts.
I act, do stunts, fight choreography, stand in, and do back ground work.
Anything to get by. I also write. One of my screenplays is being produced.

I’m using this log as a tool. I want to get in the best shape I can for
this project. And, with the camaraderie and great input in T Nation I know
it will help. A lot. Accountability is important. And sometimes you get
more help from strangers than friends.

I’m 5’8 and 185. I’m no Ken Patera. But I try.
