Nobody moves the IRON like me, IRON is my bitch

How I Started: i was interested in it since i was about 12, but i didn't start working out until i was 14. i hated basketball, so i talked my school into letting me lift weights instead

Why I Love It: i love the health benefits. sometimes, i can be pretty hard on my body with snowboarding/etc, so having more muscle helps with me getting thrown around. i started taking care of my body at a very young age and i'm sure my body will age a lot better than other people. i also like looking good for my gf.

How I Stay Motivated: it's ingrained in me. i really have no problem with motivation because it's just a part of who i am. that, and i'd feel lazy/unhealthy if were to stop working out.

BB Accomplishments: i went from 133 to 199 in under a year (aprox same body fat). some of that was muscle memory, but about half wasn't (i'm at 172 now). i think just sticking with this for 13 years is possibly the biggest accomplishment. that, and benching 260.

EDIT: I just saw the pics you posted in another thread LOL.  Interesting things you were doing with the figurines from the manger scene there.   Lips sealed

well up in Alaska they dont ever do any, I would realistically place myself in the top 5% of lifters so I know if I walked onto a competition I dont know if I would win 1rst place but I would take one of the top 3 places.

Tell us some of your best lifts. I want to see what a "top 5%" lifter can move.
