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.
