    I was 18 when I started but I did a lot wrong but still made some decent progress until I quit around 23. Just got back into it about a year ago. This time hopefully I'm doing more right than wrong icon_lol.gif

    hard to say. was an athlete as a teenager and young adult in my 20s. weights were only ever used as a compliment to my rowing and swimming. i guess i didn't actually start thinking about lifting weights as its own activity until recently - like the last 3 years. huh!

    I started in high school, but got more serious about lifting in college. I played H20-polo and needed to bulk up, plus lifting was a good part of our work outs. After college and my playing days, I kept lifting with my friends - or even alone about 3 times per week - right up to the present.

    what about you guys ?


    18, but then I did absolutely nothing because I was embarrassed about not having a clue in the gym. When I hit 30 or 31, I said fuck it. Now, I have to be careful to not spend too much time at the gym. A lot of times, being at the gym is the most fun part of my day.

    61; and I'm very sorry I waited so long. I recently sent emails out to a number of guys about the RJ meetup I'm trying to organize in Fort Lauderdale. One fellow responded: "Why are you on this site?" I suggested he look at my profile page...and why was he on this site? His answer was something like "to meet fit men who are in shape, go to the gym and interested in their health and fitness. It doesn't look like you are."

    Because a lot of the gay men here are insecure, vicious faggots :-)

    Haha. Just have pity on someone with such a small soul.
