Default figue\'s intro

Hi everybody, I am new here! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
I have been checking out this site and find it quite informative.

I am quite new to fitness training (since April 04) althought I have been fairly active on and off since I was a teen (road biking, skiing, hiking, climbing), but I never got some crucial concepts... For instance, I always thought that I was doomed to be injury prone and unathletic, not realising that the key to staying uninjured was to go gradually + consistantly and with good form, and I also didn't get how important nutrition was to a good physique.

3 years ago, I good a "real job" and since then I have to commute for 45-50 min twice a day. I also gained 23lb in the process [img]/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] Doh!

Now I am 31 years old and realize that I have to get off me b*tt. Since last march, I lost 12 lb, and want to learn more and more about training and nutrition.

I want to reach my goals and wish you great success with your respective goals, lots of learning and fun in the process!

Cheers!

Welcome!!!

You will learn more than you you even need to on this site, and they are so many great articles to check out.

First, I would suggest checking out the 12 or 13 week fat burning diet up in the nutrition tab above. Also dont be afriad to check peoples journals and ask questions!

13 week diet http://www.abcbodybuilding.com/magaz...urningdiet.htm

12 week diet
http://www.abcbodybuilding.com/magazine/fatlossdiet.htm

Best of Luck.

Act by choice, not by habit.

If there is no ememy within, the enemies outside can do no harm.

Fear, real fear shakes you to your foundation; it seeks to rot everything, even the words with which you speak of it. So you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the words upon it. Because if you dont, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, or even forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you.
