    Dude, you're huge.

    I think I was the biggest member until you came along.

    You're name is Erik as well, assuming you're Scandinavian, it must be our viking genetics.

    I ran a 4.95 40 though

    "Yeah man I haven't really ran a 40, I mean I did when I was in shape and played Defensive Tackle for my high school football team. This is the story of my growing weight :'(

    I played Defensive Tackle for my high school and was going to play for the U of M... well my last game of my senior year I had an accident. I was in hot pursuit of the QB when the Center cheap blocked me (I still don't know how it happened) and popped my hip out of my socket. I had to have 2 screws put in and the Surgeon (who was the Surgeon for the Seattle Seahawks) told me exactly, "sorry... but you will most likely never play football again." I cried and cried, i couldn't believe some @$$h0l3 center ruined my free college tuition and maybe even NFL career *rolls eyes* I should find this guy and ask him for my tuition! lol anyways yeah throughout my recovery my weight grew and grew, then i went and got depressed and grew and grew.... here I am 2 1/2 years later and I have been good for a while, but haven't had the motivation to work out. Its hard to work out by urself when your used to working out with a group of guys... anyways yeah

    The quote feature is in the top right of corner of each post, it's extremely useful.


    I know what you mean about needing someone work out with, I hate going by myself.

    None of your friends workout? I know that at my gym, just the local YMCA, everyone pretty much sticks to the same schedule. So when I'm there I know everyone, and that's kind of like having several partners. So if you go consistently and meet some people, it's a big help.

    If you're looking to lose the weight, don't ignore weight training, it helps tremendously.

    Were those numbers you posted before your hip injury? Because a 450lb squat post hip surgery is amazing.

    450lbs pre surgery... I don't do squats anymore, i do more leglifts which i average about 500-700 lbs depending on my mood.

    I work full time go to school full time and write for the school paper on the weekend (50% tuition pay) I dont have a ton of time to go to the gym and don't have much time to socialize. Anyways thanks man.
