After lurking for months ...

Postby vegansludge » Fri Oct 07, 2011 4:42 am

... finally decided to join. So, hello all!

The run-down: 22 years old, currently living close to Cincinnati, Ohio but relocating to Cleveland sometime in the near future. Weight trained pretty intensely in high school, went to college, got chubby/stopped lifted and realized that wasn't going to cut it. started doing a lot of cardio my sophomore year and continued to do so until the summer before my senior year and became "skinny fat." Started re-incorporating weights but only had dumbbells so it was pretty "bro" with mostly isolation exercises. Somehow I managed to get a decent base going but, after getting back into the habit of lifting regularly, I wanted to get back into lifting heavy like in high school. Finally had enough money to buy a bar and weights and nailed down a routine that I'm happy with.

Oh, and I've been vegan for over a year now - vegetarian for a year before that.

Pretty stoked to finally get approved to post.

Thanks for the welcome!

I am still shedding the habit of lurking since I've been reading posts but not replying to them - probably should break that habit.

Thanks again for the warm welcome, everyone!

And, Talyn, thank you so much! It's still a bit of a mess but I'm working on it.

welcome! There's lots of lifters here.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."
