I want to give everyone a brief run down about me. I know I haven't posted on here at all, but I've been following T-Nation for about 5 to 6 years now, always reading the articles everyday. I started with bodybuilding.com but that site is a piece of shit and they seem to be very close minded individuals. I like this site for its variety.
Anyways, It all began in junior high when someone made fun of my pigeon chest and about me being super skinny. I was always the smallest kid in school and probably the lightest as well. I weighed 76 lbs in 6th grade and I came into highschool about 105lbs. It was always hard for me to eat alot, I was the kind of kid that would take a bite of my food and run around the house before the next bite. I went into highschool and joined the waterpolo and swim team. Those built my appetite pretty well and we lifted weights 3 times a week and did many pushups and pullups and ab exercises everyday. I gained 20lbs from fresh to sophmore year. I joined a gym and began lifting. By my junior year I got up to 145 to 150. Then took lifting pretty seriously senior year and got up to 160 to 165.
I continued lifting pretty seriously, got stronger than most kids and then went off to college. I've always had training ADD and never stuck to a workout, did benching alot and everything else whenever i felt like it. Hardly worked my legs because I've always felt a hernia coming in near my lower abs right above my dick. that area. So i could never push it in squats, but in leg presses i could lift over 1000 lbs with proper form, legs going past 90 degrees. Got into college, couldn't eat as well. Dorm food was disgusting. Joined a fraternity and drank every single night. Still had training ADD and i stayed the same weight. The 2nd year in college i couldnt afford a variety of food so i pretty much wheat pasta, fatrty ground beef, and alfredo sauce for every meal. I thought it was healthy but i was greatly mistaken. What i didnt know is that Im gluten intolerant so that wheat fucked me over. anyways the past 2 weeks I did a raw fruit and veggie only diet, lost alot of weight and strength and now im here to stick to one workout plan and kill it. make sure everything is perfect, nutrition, recovery, and training. Im doing the Big Beyond Belief program 6days a week. I will post up my daily diet, workout, and pics asap.
btw my best maxes (not current) were: Bench 295, Pullups w/75lbs 8reps, Squat 315, DL 345, Push press 205 to 225. and i hardly worked out my arms, thats why they're super skinny.
