My first exposure to T-Mag was when a friend of mine sent me a link to Chris Shugart’s “Big Woof - Get Laid the Testosterone Way,” which was published way back in Issue #93 (By the way, that article was one amazing piece of wisdom that helped me and then helped many friends – props to Shugs). After that I started reading, but I was completely overwhelmed by the info, as up until that point my lifting knowledge was derived from the various Weider mags and the “Bigger, Faster, Stronger” program we did for high-school football. I originally posted as 3-L T-Man, but that became a misnomer once I had graduated.
I still would consider myself somewhat of an in-between guy in terms of knowledge – I’ve been lifting since I was 14, but I only started getting really good info from T-Mag a little while ago, and my knowledge pales in comparison to all of these forum-ites who are doing post-grad bio-chem work or are getting masters degrees in human physiology. That’s why I mostly only post in Off-Topic, unless I have a question – I just don’t feel as if I’m the best qualified person to give an answer. However, I love reading the debates that go on, and, to the extent they aren’t completely over my head, I think I learn a lot from the exchanges.
And, of course, I am always entertained by the antics of the resident forum primate – his gift for turning a phrase and unique perspective on things are always a nice break from the stifling confines of normalcy.
