I randomly came across T-Nation a couple days ago while I was googling stuff about bodybuilding. And hot damn, I looked around the site, read a few articles, and it was like a fire got lit under my ass. I got up and went on over to the gym and got a membership. Tonight was my first night working out, ever, and man I’m fuckin’ beat and sore as hell but it feels great!
It was really kind of intimidating starting out, 'cause I had to use pretty light weights and all. But even then, it just got to the point near the end where I didn’t even care about how little weight I was using, it was all about squeezing out that last one, maybe two reps. I don’t think I’d have pushed myself that hard if it wasn’t for the guy that was there helping me out.
I just wanted to post and let you guys know that this site has motivated me to get off my lazy ass and get out there and fuckin’ bust ass. I love the site and I love the attitude of the members. Besides, if I stay active on the site, I’ll have to stay active in the gym too, or else I’m sure I’ll catch a shitload of hell from all you guys. Nothin’ like good ol’ peer pressure for motivation.
Alright, alright, I’ll wrap up the newb rant. Maybe I can sneak in a newb question, though. I have my workout routine and diet kinda figured out, but I’m clueless when it comes to supplements.
Any recommendations for someone just starting out like me? I haven’t checked out a lot of the site yet, so I guess if there are any supplement articles for beginners you could point me to, I’d greatly appreciate it.
It feels good to be here guys, and I’ll try and stay updated on my progress and stuff. Who knows, I might even gain some confidence and post some before and after pictures later.
Okay okay, I’m really done this time. Later!
