Jim, that’s a great story. I hope you stick with it this time and in years to come you can look back and be proud.
bobo, by the time you get big enough to punch your old coach out, you won’t even think about doing it.
I started at 28 and puttered around for two years before I found this site and gave up lifting in my livingroom/basement. I used to spend hours a day trying to figure out new exercises with nothing more than a set of free weight and a bench and fondly remembering seeing my grandfather at 5 in the morning lifting weights in his basement at the age of 70. That man is what inspires me every single day. To give up would be to give up on his dream as well. Why did I start? Because I was tired of being useless.
