Well I've been reading this site for quite som time now, so I decided it was kinda time for me to register.

First of all my name is Kevin. I'm a 24 year old kid from Belgium. I recently graduated from college and got a Masters degree in Graphic design. I'm on kung fu, I paint and draw ALOT. But I also play bass guitar in a few bands and I'm a straight edge kid as well.

Well I've been vegetarian/straight edge for over 10 years now and I kept feeling better and better after I decided to keep meat out of my diet. the main reason I went vegetarian was because it was really hard to see how animals had to live and how they were treated by the so called "industry".

Well in my upbrining my parents always told me to always respect people no matter what their skincolor, income, gender, ... etc was. Well around the time I was 13 I realised that it was the most important to respect the beings that were the weakest. The ones that can't really defend themselves or the ones that have no voice to state their opinion. I figured out for myself that the words "respect" and "ethical awareness" wouldn't mean much if I left the animals unheard.

Well I joined a gym a few months ago. And I love it! My goal is to get as big as possible in a clean and positive way.


My training after 3 months looks like this:

I'm 5 foot 9 and weigh 72 kg
