My workout consists of 3 to 4 days of lifting and 2, but more often than not, 3 days of cardio. I am 30 years old but I eat well and stay in good shape. I did not always understand how to take care of my body, mind, and soul for years, but thankfully I have in the past few years.
My hair seems to be failing me at the moment, but I put a lot of miles on my brain these days so I look at the top of my head is like a well driven road. I have a great job, a wonderful fiance, and I work from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. but after that, that is when my fun begins.
I am a gym rat through and through, I am obsessed with being in a gym, and I will admit I even enjoy the smell.
I started out lifting the typical isometric exercises for years, lifting 3 sets of 10 reps on just about everything I did. My break-through was once I finished college; I received my Exercise Physiology degree, and paid attention in the weight room during strength training.
The best thing I figured out in that time period was 'tricking' my muscles and body to do what I wanted. I was like a sneaky, deceiving man, lying here and there, doing things that only a crazy person would do, but it worked.
I was the guy in the gym that you look at and wonder what the 'H' is wrong with that person and what kind of workout is that. I have said that to myself, quickly realizing people say that about me.

Being a somewhat attention deficient guy, I had to figure out a way to stay motivated and enjoy my workouts, while adding muscle. My routine was a full body workout that ended up giving me some big arms even though I was trying to tone up.
The first time I really realized that my arms were getting bigger is when I reached to the back of the closet and grabbed a shirt I had not worn in a few months. I put said shirt on and got the 'what the...' look from my fiance.
So I looked in the mirror and needless to say I was a man-child. It felt good and made me feel accomplished, and we had a good laugh.
