    i think pretty much everyone started with benching and curling
    Throughout my lifetime, I've left pieces of my heart here and there. And now, there's almost not enough to stay alive. But I force a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent

    By strength routine do you mean training in a low (3-5) rep range?
    I've always trained for hypertrophy since the beginning and for most people, including myself, thats the 6-12 rep range.
    I do like doing some heavy sets for strength on squats and deads though

    Started on Jay Cutler routine I found online, because I wanted to be like him. Did similar 5 day splits for ~1.5 years, then ~6 months powerlifting, which leads to now. See avi.

    EDIT: Just looked at avi. 19lbs leaner now. :s
    9.54 second Rubik's Cube single solve. ~15 second average. Reppin' back any Cube brahs.

    no, but I should have.

    it wasn't until 1 1/2 years after I started "lifting" that I did starting strength.

    put at least 50lbs on all my lifts and gained 20lbs in a few months. then I cut and was lookin juicy. that was 1 1/2 years ago.

    I was super fat prior to discovering BB but just went ahead on a cut and the 4-5 day split programs that the Scivation guys made. Worked in a sense that I lost weight but I could barely bench 95lbs. Several years later I'm now just chubby and slightly built. I'm on starting strength and I've been plateauing at a 1 plate bench now. Meh, atleast my deadlift is at 275lbs..
    Greatness from small beginnings.
