Why I Got Started
dot

Nearly 3 years ago I was (bucked off) my 1700 Yamaha and landed at about 35 mph on my left shoulder with all that inertia and all my body weight. The result? A broken shoulder. I drove the bike 40 miles into town, got in my truck and went to the ER for X-rays. At that time I was, for lack of a better description, skinny fat. I had muscles that had very little tone and a belly that was heading in the wrong direction.

Not believing in paying a doctor for something I can do on my own, I began to hit the weight room at the college where I am employed. I could barely manage 95 pounds on a flat bench between the injury and just plain being out of shape.

My training is very intense, I push hard each and every time. As a result, my blood pressure that used to be 145/95 is now averaging 110/75 with a resting HR in the low 50s. I tend to do very little cardio so I can only attribute these changes to pushing hard in the weight room!

How I Did It
dot

At first I just did a circuit routine. I started reading, and then a co-worker turned me on to Team Scivation. Scivation helped with my initial routine and diet plan. Between books, Team Scivation, Bodybuilding.com, the college students and my motivation, I am completely hooked.

I have gone from that out of shape 170-pound old guy with a bigger than wanted belly to 190lbs bulky, and now 183 pounds of fit and trim. Working on diet, cardio and lifting nearly every day, I now routinely bench 225 pounds and have a goal to hit 300 pounds by the end of the summer! I feel and look younger than I have in years and challenge the twenty something college kids to keep up with me every day.

Throughout the years I have been a Deputy Sheriff in Ft. Lauderdale, spent a total of 13 years in the military and have been a competitive martial artist. I have broken, torqued, twisted and fractured everything in my body but my spine and hips. As a result, my knees and shoulders are difficult to work. I just work through it by doing medium weight and a lot of reps. I WILL get through it and have big legs!

Suggestions For Others
dot

Surround yourself with active, enthusiastic people and avoid all negativity. Never say "I can't," replace it with "I will." As said before, I have been into martial arts, the military and the law enforcement mentality. I tend to think of training of any sort as a "What if?" What if ... I need to protect my family or myself and I am unable to do so because I was not is shape to handle the situation? I truly believe that being healthy and in shape also helps my mind function well, not only in crisis but in everyday situations. So ... Train Hard or Go Home! Bodybuilding has given me my life back and I don't see any reason to ever stop.
