Training for me started when I was 15, so about 5 years ago. In middle school i was 5’5 and 155lbs of fat. In freshman year I ran across Ross Training, and using those methods I was able to get down to 125lbs. I was about 5’9 at the time.
For two years I trained mostly for boxing, as I trained at a gym and wanted to compete as an amateur. That never happened though, and I eventually left that gym (due to a number of reasons). This was around the end of sophomore year in high school, I was about 5’11 and 145lbs.
During this time I didn’t have a lot of equipment. I had about 130lbs of free weights, a barbell (pipe form home depot), 2 dumbbell handles, a chin-up bar, and a homemade TRX type apparatus. I never truly bulked, but I did get myself to about 200lbs by the middle of senior year in high school. My training went through modded versions of WS4SB, and then later a body part split (sort of, I didn’t have the equip to train legs…)
I just joined a gym in July, and I’ve never looked back!
Currently I’m training for powerlifting. I want to compete sometime soon, after I hit the numbers I want to first.
Age: 18 (I’ll be 19 in February)
Tl;dr: Hi, my name is Steve, and I have a shitty squat, bench and deadlift.
