Oh right, an introduction

#1 Postby Thulpa » Tue Jan 17, 2012 1:21 am

Yeah, so It may help if I do an introduction post.

Hi, I am Steve, a power lifter from Chicago, and long time animal rights advocate. I have been a super supporter of this site and Rob over the years, though I never started a journal. I liked all the 12 days of VBB, and since I was finally cleared from a medical issue, joined a couple gyms, and finally started to get myself back on track in the fitness world. I had a MSRA infection, pretty severe one, and I was told not to sweat in the fear that it might spread. If you love the summer, and are told to sit in front of a fan for the entirety of it, it can lead to all kinds of issues.

Now, I have been hitting the gym strong, and I am almost back to where I was before I came down with my infection. I am still pretty big in the wrong places, though I am sure that it is only a matter of time before I am back to normal on that front.

I am training to get back into fighting shape, I used to be a tournament fighter, and I would love to get back to it. I may never compete professionally, though It is better than any of the alternatives of not being in the industry.

Check out my training journal called Back to fighting form.
Thanks for reading

Great to have you here, Steve!

I have to personally thank you so much for all your incredible support over the years! You're one of the people who has helped us keep going during tough times and moving forward during rough times.

Thank you so much. Great to finally meet you in person as well! That is one of my true joys running this website, the opportunity to meet so many members in person.

Thansk for creating a training journal here as well and for your encouraging comments in mine.

All the best and, officially, welcome aboard!
