Ya, I am 31 years old. I have always been a competitive athlete, (D1 college f-ball player), but now I am married got a kid on the way, I play in a few hockey leagues and one b-ball league, but I can feel age getting a hold of my body. The aches and pains don't go away that fast and I am having real difficulty with my mid-section (beer taste so good when it hits your lips). I use to be 225lbs at about 9%bf till I hit 28 years old. I started to get fat, b/c I started a marketing company and was busting my butt to make the cash, now three years later, I am loafed. My body aches (four knee surgeries, torn rotator cuff, bone spurs (getting those yanked though)) , I remember when I had less BF I felt great energized, was actually quick. Now when I play b-ball or hockey and these young bucks are zipping past me, its tough to hang. This may sound stupid, but as dumb as adult sport leagues may be, it allows me to get those competitive juices going. So to make a long winded post shorter,

- lower bf%
- maintain strength while losing BF
- get back the speed and quickness I use to have
- get back to dunking a b-ball
- I'd like to bench 405 again, but would rather lose BF, and my rotator cuff really makes it difficult to bench BB flat.
