thinking of coaching


#1

i have been weightlifting since i was about 14.i was always a little fucker,so at a young age i had the idea of go heavy or go home attitude, since i was so small i knew i would have to become stronger than everyone else to be competative in athletics. as i lifted i found out that i was pretty strong,so i began powerlifting.iwas the only powerlifter at my high school,we never even had a team until i tried it in the 11th. grade.i was the team. i accually did very well nevr placed below 2nd exept my first nationals meet 5th i believe. anyway everything that i have learned about weight training i learned on my own.i have always trained on my own.never really liked to read much i just looked at the pictures of the muscle magz. i only recently realized i need to cram as much knowledge as i can into this 29 year old head, im about to be a dad, and now will have the opertunity to teach. anyhow i recently started working with a couple of younger meetheads in the gym and found that i really like working with them. not only do i push the fuck out of them but myself as well. i still have to be the strongest hee. so now i am contemplating becoming a coach/and or a personal trainer. if anyone read all that shit i am wondering if anyone can sugest some good material yes reading (pictures is still a plus especally of woman... enough,)of strength training/speed/agilaty ect. i already know this is the best place of all, even though im new to t-nation. thanks for your time fuckers. anyextra info is appreciated. oh and sorry for the freaking language the military did it. later
