A busy year and time away, I return.
Cheers ABC! It's been a very hectic year, with my minimum out-of-home time being 50 hours a week, not including errands and entertainment, most of the time being around 70+ hours a week, while working on my own home businesses. Among other things, from this last year, I went to school at the National Personal Training Institute with some seriously impressive players in the industry, and knocked down my NASM cert. I've finally made the switch over from hobbyist to professional tract and am starting my work in large part with diabetics and other clinical and semi-clinical needs clients, while hitting my physiology research hard and working the slow preparation for enrolling in a masters in a couple of years.
I've been too busy to breath let alone visit any of my favorite forums, socialize with friends in my area, or really just about anything else. In that time though I have also dropped from around 32-35% BF (its been a hard few years!) to 20-25% (Going to try to remeasure this next weekend based off calipers), my bulk and strength are getting close to my lifetime max's, and numerous dysfunctions and imbalances have been fixed!
It's been a long enough time away from ABC and a packed enough year that I thought I'd drop in and share, and see how you've all been doing and what you've been up to. I should post some before and after pictures too (I wish I had better before-pics, but life was too busy to remember), and I have a couple of academic articles I'd like to post as well, though I'll admit they're not as angled towards bodybuilding, as much as sports performance and hormone physiology.
Nonetheless though, I'm back, and how have you all been?
