Hey guys, I'm Chris. I've been lurking on the forums and through the articles for a while now, but just now decided to make a profile. I read the stickies for the "Beginner" section, and didn't think that I completely fit in there, so decided to do this here instead since hypertrophy is my main goal in weight training.
Not sure if anyone cares enough for an intro, but it's an online forum, which usually accompanies an open social environment, right?
So, a little bit on me I guess: I went through high school being a lazy kid who did nothing but play video games and go out at night and engage in activities that aren't conducive to good health or size. When I graduated and got into college, I joined the ROTC unit at my school, and picked up a Marine Corps contract. That's when I got more into working out, but that first year all that I really did is typical calisthenics involved in the training you see in military organizations, and run.
The summer after my freshman year, at 18 years old, I got tired of being the typical small runner type, so I joined up with a gym and started lifting weights. That was almost a year ago now, and I think that I've made some decent progress since then. My only real issue has been gaining size at an acceptable rate while still being able to do the 3 mile in a good time.
