    my former powerlifting buddy (6ft 275lb) was a parole officer and then technician for a chemical company. I'm a little guy (205lb) but huge compared to my co-workers and work in an office as an Environmental, Health, and Safety Specialist for a manufacturing company.

    I work for a drinking water company, lugging big 5 gallon jugs of water around all day. Most of the time you'll find me parked at a gas station getting in my meals.

    I'm starting college in the middle of January for Exercise Science, after a brief stay at a community college, I plan on going to Ohio State. After that, Physical Therapy school.

    At that point I'll be a SHW champion powerlifter rehabbing old ladies with bad hips.

    it seems that anyone who works on a farm has crazy strength...i know some kids that would be all state in football if they would play and train for it..but they work on the farm because their family needs them too...the one buddy of mine said "oh today wasn't too bad, i just had to pull the transmission out of the truck because it was broken again." I was like you did what??!!
