Hello to everyone. I have not been posting lately although I do read some of the posts from time to time. Sorry I missed LOLH III, sounds like a great time, say hey to the Springfield bunch. One of the best times of my life was last years LOLH II. I have been busy and obsessed lately. Of course my business always eats up a lot of time and energy, but my latest "hobby" has devoured me entirely. Starting in late July I began training at a hardcore powerlifting/strongman gym and have set a goal to compete in a local strongman competiition as a novice next July. I train 3 days per week doing stuff like lifting stones, carrying yokes, pulling trucks etc. At 52 I am the oldest guy in the place by far and one of the most dedicated. I am really having a great time. I have maintained a body weight of 266 at 6'1", but have lost 6 pounds of fat, gained 6 pounds of muscle, put 1/4" on my upper arms and more then 1" on my thighs. I am routinely sprinting 100' for reps while carrying a couple of hundred pounds in each hand or flipping a 650 pound tire for time. Man, what a blast. I also do a few days of cardio each week. So mostly when I am not training, working or eating I am dog tired. I still smoke a cigar a day, but I rarely feel inclined to write about it. I will make an effort to post more often, especially to relay my drive time reviews.
