Greetings to all. im Arthritisboy . and im here to share my story.
i started traing weights as a eary pre teen. 10-13 age group. for years throught my teens i would train on and off. i got fat as a 16 year old" actually i was fat many times and lost weight on my own. but at sixteen i was severely depressed. so what does a 5'11 inch 260 lb
kid do. i started running. i ran every day. soon i could run really far . i started taking weightr loss drugs a freind introduced to me,"ripped feul''... and sadly abused it. and that led to massive hairloss."another story. anyhow.
durring this time i developed a love for running, from age 18 to 23 i would run like the wind. i mean far. 28 miles at the most. but i started gaining weight for lifting. i got up to a 325 lb bench press, by not knowing proper periodization or lifting technique, and my best deadlift was 405 for a set of 10. of course i weighed around 300 from all the junk food i ate.
anyways i tore my meniscus squating 300 somthing and now have arthritis and not medial meniscus in my right knee. and in my left i have a thin meniscus medialy and since then have gone through many phases. first i had to walk daily to loos weight, with the help of more stacker 2 and 3 pills. and then i started riding my bike again. i also forgot to mention that around the same time i got knee shit i fucked my shoulders by powercleaning 225... pathetic i know.
so ive also dealt with ac joint bullshit since. but ive been able to almost but cure it through gaining the knowledge over the years that i have about the anatomy and studying the articles here for 3 uears thouroghly. i also went through a massage therapy course. so i had to learn human anatomy and how to realese and care for tissues. so im not a nube on the body.
but im getting to point where i need to seriously asses my exercize and how ill maintain my body for the future and not have to be a fucking cripple when im 40. so i thought id go to the begginers section. since their may be many who i guess would consider me that.
take care all
