It has been a while(2012), but things have calmed down do I hope to post on here more often again and should have a article releasing soon.
Yes I posted the below story here in 2012, but just wanted to update it.
For those of you that do not know I started off training at around 100 pounds body weight with my high school coach. I was chronically sick for 7 years which we finally discovered was due to my esophageal sphincter( stomach cap) not functioning correctly. Because of that I threw up every day/ night and some days every meal.
Like I said I was around 100lbs in highschool so had no possible interest in sports or weightlifting. But I was placed in it do to a scheduling mistake and fell in love.
But I noticed I was getting stronger , but not really any bigger. Especially my chest, I really had no chest (36 inches) but could bench 355 pounds. I prided myself in surprising people when I lifted , never expecting to get any bigger. Then one day it happened , I discovered T-Nation and thus hypertrophy specific training.
Writers like John , Bret, Brad , Chris and Lee captivated my mind , they showed me a option. I studied as much as possible on hypertrophy specific training and wondered if I would ever get 16 inch arms.
Attached above was me right out of the hospital , full grown , 6 feet tall and 100 pounds soaking wet.
