Why Fitness?

My fitness journey started as an emaciated 18-year college freshman from San Diego, CA who did not like his thin physique. I remember walking through the college gymnasium and into the weight room and being impressed by the sculpted bodies of the athletes working out in the college gym. My...

2004-2021 - Photos of the lifting journey - Spolier - I got older

I have tiny bone structure and that used to wind me up no end, knowing I´d never be the big guy. I´ve been in the gym now for over two decades and, gawd, turned 40 this year; obviously, it has not taken that long to build to where I am. I have stayed natty, clearly, lol, but considered getting a...

How much weight - 17" arms

Just as the title says - and this isn't serious, or meant to be scientific in any way. I just want to know, from all you large arm folked out there (especially those of you who started out skinny like me): how much weight were you lifting when you hit 17" for your arms? I like having goal #s to...

Any nostalgic things that you look to for motivation?

To clear up the title a bit more, is there anything that you remember using to motivate yourself that still stands out to you today or that you maybe even still use for motivation today? For me, I'll always remember a certain video that's a clip of Jocko Willink makes the point to take the things...

Question Strong physically, but not mentally. Wwyd?

For the past few months I've tried to be consistent, sticking to a daily routine of getting up at 6AM for a walk, then heading back home for breakfast/shower/etc, and then to the gym at around 8:30. Through doing this I've dramatically increased my strength, as well as my motivation to get other...

24 y/o male, really needing advice going forward.

Info about me: 24 years old, male, 6 feet tall, ~180 pounds. I’ve been working out since June of 2020. First, I was on a program that either wasn’t good for beginners, or wasn’t good for me, or that I was not aware of the best way to progress on. I’d fail each time I went to the gym after a...
