Hi community, Since I've gotten so much out of BHW, I wanted to give something back. But since I can't produce nearly as informative posts as you already have here about IM, I decided to go with a route I know. I've been weightlifting on and off since high school, so that would put it at 6 years now or so. During that time I've done good and I've done bad. All the way from injuries in my lower back (was also told I shouldn't ever lift anything heavy anymore after MRI scan) and shoulder to losing 25kg in 6 months and deadlifting over 2x my bodyweight. + also I was in the marines (mandatory 11 months) and got that training. Since I know that a lot of you already do fitness, but there are several of you who still have some questions or just don't know how or where to start. Ask any questions about weightlifting, nutrition or injuries here and I will give my 2 cents from the experience I've had myself + also the knowledge I've gotten from all the people I've worked out with. The advice I'll give won't be any traditional BS "start slow and believe in yourself" but rather straight to the point of what I've seen work for myself and other people. I've seen people go to a gym for 12 months straight and still lift and look the same, and I've seen people 2x all their lifts within 6 months or even less. I encourage those who are well into their fitness life to also help out and answer any questions anyone leaves here so we could all grow stronger together and help each other out.
