Anyone else into it?


I've posted about it once or twice but I used to be very heavy.  As in 5'8 305 pounds heavy.  A few years ago I decided to make some changes and throughout the last two years lost over 150 pounds.  Once I got down to a certain point I started to go to the gym and in the last year I've become fascinated with bodybuilding.  I'm in my "bulking" stage for the winter and have gained 22 pounds so far.  I'm considering competing in a competition if I can get my body where I would like it to.  Either later this year or next would be the timeframe I'm thinking.  It's not something I have to do and not a big goal of mine but something I've considered.


Have any of you ever done a bodybuilding competition before?  


I lift regularly these days and eat like a mad man trying to gain weight.  It's a far cry from where I was a few years ago trying to get myself fit and lose the fat. I lost the weight without going to the gym, it was done at home with my own workout equipment and P90X.  Since I began lifting at the gym I've become addicted to it.  It's definitely a permanent part of my life now.


Congrats on the results.


After finishing school, getting a desk job and having kids I gained weight.


I am 6'3. At my heaviest I was around 240. That was in spring 2010. Over the next year or so , I lost around 60 pounds. All through eating good and exercise.


Now I struggle to gain weight. I go to the gym 4 or 5 days a week. I run and cycle regularly. I have been doing the Joe Manganiello Evolution workout from his book. My goal is to gain about 10 pounds of muscle.

Justin Forsett did not exactly excel under our previous staff yet when he leaves here he is one of the best in the league in Baltimore.  So I don't think the new guys can be too much worse.


He was hurt nearly the entire time he was here.

Surprised it took this long. He came from Miami with Fisch.

50 Million Americans literally can not afford to feed themselves yeah I'd say the American Dream is in a little trouble. 


The percentage of people in this country living at, or below, the poverty line has been at 15% or less for 50 years. Prior to that the number was much higher.

I've been wondering the same thing. It would be awesome if he did.


Agree. I think that would be great.
