Hey to all that remember me! Due to injury and medical issues I took a break from lifting. Man I missed your mugs on a daily basis lol! Unfortunately I had to completely break away and focus on getting better. Just looking around I see a lot of new faces and itís good to see the old. Taking time off I lost everything I worked so hard for, self confidence was in the tank.

Injury was tennis elbow in both arms, took almost a year to completely heal due to my job was very Labor Intensive. Pills, shots, only worked when I was at rest. I finally landed a job that did not aggravate my arms. And before I knew it I could pick up a grocery bag with no pain.

Medically I was hit hard when I found out that I had low testosterone, that explains the plateau I was in and also I was getting weaker not stronger. Iím now on HRT and feel great, itís been 6 months now since the introduction of HRT and I feel like Iím ready to start lifting again. Itís going to be fun sharing the progress once again, talk to ya soon.

Man, it is GREAT to hear from you! I've often wondered about you and knew how to get in touch with you, but also knew if you wanted to come back...you knew where we were! I just didn't want to pressure or bug you.

It's good to hear that you are ready to start lifting again! I hope you are able to stick around a bit more too!

Ok I did not go into work today so I took some pics with my cell phone. Now remember itís been a long time since I hit the weights, but at least we all can see a starting point. I am losing some belly weight since I started Hrt so thatís a plus; Mon is a new start for me! I look forward to all of your ideas and constructive criticism. Itís going to be difficult to get back to eating all the meals per dayÖTake care all

p.s. I was 185 in my sig picture, i'm now 210

You've still got some good lean mass size underneath a little fun-eating layer. I'd say that's an awesome starting point! Way better than where many of us started from the very beginning! You'll be back the way you want to be in no time I think!

Great to have you back.


The mind and the body are interrelated: what you do to one necessarily effects the other. There must be a balance between the two. If your body is strong but your mind is weak, you are a powerful instrument with no direction; such an instrument rarely produces good. If your mind is strong but your body is weak, then you may be filled with purpose and good intentions but have no strength necessary to act on your impulses. You must strengthen your mind to control your body; and strengthen your body so you can always follow the good directions of your mind.

Welcome back. Sorry to hear about your injuries but glad to see it is all working out for you. You still have some big arms for not lifting in a while. Good luck!!
