After years and years of injuries due to contact sports (Basketball, Football, Boxing, etc.) and after four concussions in as little as 4 months I have decided it's time for a change. After reading several posts and articles I have been heavely thinking of BB. I am 17 years old, 6'4", 177 lbs. I am not skinny, but my weights really low for the amount of workouts I do. I am not new to the weight room.
I have actually been training for 5 years, but not for size. More for athletic benifits. I need to think long and hard about what my goals are going to be, but I am determinded to do this. I have somewhat size and I'm one of the strongest kids in my Junior class, and my freshman year I placed 3rd in state in Georgia for a football weightlifting competition amung every 170-180. I am strong, just not big.
For four months I have been eating my butt off, and I have a somewhat knowledge of nutrition. I don't eat fastfood, boxed frozen foods, canned anything, basically the only thing i get from the grocery store is fruit and meat, but thats going to change as my mom has her own garden full of vegetables and is now experementing with fruit and she is also joining a co-op for the grass fed meat.
I have been drinking whey protein and creatine for some years now and have a sensible knowledge of it. So I guess basically I have the basic knowledge of what needs to be done in order to get in the sport of BB. I always thought it was an interesting class of men and women that pushes their body to the absolute limits and I would love to become one of those select few.
