I am 36yrs old. I have been on this site for over a year now and I want to truely thank Daniel, Travis and the gang for the community they have provided. I have been lifting for quite some time, not always at a high level. But since joining this site, i have absolutely fallen in love with lifting weights again. I might be even more motivated than I have ever been. And i should be the strongest I have ever been within the next calendar year. Let me add that Im not some dormant freak locked in my basement (or at least I dont think I am). I am a successful football coach and also serve as a strength and conditioning coach as well. The beauty of this site is we have varying degrees of lifters, from all walks of life. Aside from the occassional bum, there are no "know-it-all" meatheads on here. Everyone seems to want to see other lifters have success. Its almost as if we all feel we have some amount of accountability to one another and we all share the failures and successes of each other. Anyway, ive rambled enough. And NO, I do not need a hug. Im just excited about how "excited" this site has made me about our lifting community.
