Ive been doing some bodybuilding since I was 16 (24 now) and got my weight from 140 to 195 at 5'8", but ive also been religous with it until the past month. I do some powerlifting during the winter when my bf% is higher.. but mostly focus on hypertrophy.

I use to then I realized that I don't care much about how "built" I am. Now, I'm just concerned about staying in shape for health reasons. I find that a lot of people body build to appease their ego more than their health - especially when you get to the point when you're taking supplements.

Just restarted.

Focus is more on weight loss and getting healthy than buffing up.

i used to lift weights like CRAZZZY 5'7 and 175 lbs

I kinda stopped as I started working full time while in Nursing school.

Im down to 165 now, but i feel great!

I agree with the ego thing. I really dont care to be big anymore, just naturally healthy, with of course a little bit of muscle on me... buit no longer take Supplements or anything like that

Lifting keeps me sane! I couldn't imagine not having a "lifting lifestyle"... Tronix304, those are some really sick numbers especially at your size. Your deads and bench are stellar, and your squat is still over 2x bodyweight, which is solid. Are those numbers for raw lifts? You must compete in powerlifting? Do you do any olympic lifting?

My max deadlift is 440 and at the time I was 5'8" - 167. I really want a 3 x bodyweight deadlift raw. I know it will take me many more years, but I hope to get there one day. For now I really wanna get to 500 on deads.

Good to see some active guys on this board!

I agree its an ego thing for some people, but for me its like working on a piece of art (a piece of art that needs a lot of work!) :chuckle

I've lifted on and off for about 10 years now. Went from decent build, to skinny Marine outta boot, and worked my way back up a couple times since Iraq doesn't have a weightlifting facility.

But after being out a few years and having time w/ school im at:

Bench- 375

Squat- I just do 315 for sets now to save my knees.

DL- I do about 350 for sets of 10 most of the time.

My stuff has mostly switched to making sure I work things evenly and stretch a great deal everyday. Spend alot of time strengthing rotator cuffs in my shoulders, and doing various/odd back exercises. I try to change it up and also enjoy grappling/ground fighting, running distance/ sprints.

Oh ya, and I'm 5'9" and weigh in around 190.
