Hi all

Been lurking around this site for ages so I thought it was about time I joined up.

I'm from Derby, a small city in central England. I've been training for a couple of years now; vegan almost 10 years. Currently weighing in at 225 pounds (recently finished bulking so need to shift a little lard over the next few months!) & was around 160 when I went vegan.

I guess my training is geared more towards strength than bodybuilding. I don't train in true powerlifting style due to a back/hip problem, but do my best.

Welcome James. You are a big strong guy!

Great to have you here. As you know, we have more than just bodybuilders here, in fact, we only have a few bodybuilders in the group.

We have some powerlifting/strength sections as well and we'd love to hear more from you.

Welcome aboard!

-Robert

Welcome James :)

Actually, though I'm one of the few bodybuilders refers to, my training is also very strength oriented - i'm just to weak and skinny to compete in strength contests, so i make the best of my skinny self and put on some tan and hop on stage :D

Great to have you here!

Peace,
Daywalker

Hi guys, thanks for the welcome.

I guess I am rather big now; I come from a 'big' family so putting on weight is quite easy for me! I'm still a bit of a runt compared to my cousins (a couple of whom played pro rugby) so I'll keep training and eating hard.

'Ello James.

Ofence74, perhaps I'm missing something here, but I'm not sure how a picture of kinder eggs and toys can 'help' CG to stop playing around with smileys???

Personally I think she's just being lazy - using emoticons too much in place of words..........

That's quite encouraging. My normal lean weight should be around 170lbs, and now I'm at 175. Your example is very motivating. Even average sized guys like us can get huge, it seems. Can you share your strategy (frequency of workouts and meals, supplements?) I guess genetics would also have an impact. Did this growth from 160 to 225 mostly occur over the last two years?
