Hello forums! I'm new to the place and didn't see a section for intros, although it's always kind of nice to know who's joining your forums. So I figured I'd give a little introduction.
I've been lurking around this place for a few months, getting training tips and such and figured I'd join up so I can shoot my mouth off when the feeling strikes me.
I'm 19, I've been lifting weights for just over a year, the past three months of which have been in gyms rather than my basement. I'm pretty proud of my strength gains, going from a 120lb bench press to a bit over 200, 160lb deadlift going to 405 as of today, and I just started with squats a couple weeks ago and am "up" to 205. I weigh 215lbs and my goals are for Christmas to be benching 110lb dumbells, squatting 250, and deadlifting 450. I want to get the squat up to at least 300 before January is out though, it feels a little lame right now.
At present I'm more of a weightlifter than a bodybuilder, and just love lifting the iron, although I'm seriously considering the benefits of getting a little leaner and a little bigger in time for summer.
Anyhow that's my quick little intro, hopefully it doesn't seem self-indulgent or anything it's just that I'm used to having an intro section on various other forums. Cheers!
