Hey guys, Been here for about a week and have so far thoroughly enjoyed the forum. Considering putting in the effort to keep a daily log here as I hit an offseason growth period and move in to show season in 2019 covering my diet, training, and gear. This won’t be a how-to guide on how to compete; that’s impossible to write. I’m not a pro but I am competing with what i think, given my progress, is a reasonable goal of becoming one. My training/gear/diet are not by any means extreme, overly interesting, or devised by an evil genius. However, in the YouTube/social media era, I think most info out there is un-backed bullshit anyway. I also think the social media age has ruined true competition with the filtered photos, undeserving sponsored athletes, and everyone telegraphing their next move. This might be a great, more protected place for me to discuss and converse with likeminded folk without the sinkhole that is IG. Hopefully this provides value to some members and hopefully I learn some things from the group we have and their comments here as well.
