new to the site but not the steel
Hello all ,I have to say I have been to alot of sites but this is the best one yet. Well let me start by giveing my stats.
I was 6'2 and 240 with 9 % body fat and was badly injured in a car wreck,I have been on the mend for the last two years.
I am 95 % healthy now and hungry again !!!!! I will say that i am in no way the shape i was in two years ago and it is probely the hardest part to take!
Here is the terable shape i am in right now.
6 '2 200lbs 25 % body fat
34 inch waste,I have kept some of my mass , I guess it is due to my will to keep something of my pre-injury size .
I will be starting more cardio to get the body fat down and wheels back up to snuff.
Will be starting ,cytomel & clen In a few weeks !!!!!
wish me luck and thanks for the time and any advice in the future .

Welcome, one thing you got on your side is muscle memory. I know how frusterating it can be to get huge and then lose it to serious injury or sickness. This is one of the best boards around I think you will find it very useful. Now get to the gym at start !!

Hey bros here are some of the injuries I got from the wreck ,
I was t -boned @ 60 on driverside
tore 3 muscles in neck
pulled all the tendons ,three ligimants wore torn in neck
cracked 3 vert in back and one in neck
tore one muscle in shoulder
broke 3 ribs
broken color bone
I was in a fiberglass neck and shoulder brace for 8 months ,and physical theripy for 1 1/2 years
The doc's say that if it had not been for my muscle size and strength ,that it would have killed me or I would have been in a wheel chair .
I say to antone that thinks body building is just for looks ,it saved my life and maybe more people out there than me !
The only problem is with my neck right now .When i do shruggs or any lift that pulls on my neck it gives me migranes.
If any of you guys know of any neck work outs that I can use to bring it back up to snuff ,shoot them my way .
P.S sorry for the long post ,but it is nice to be on a board where you have a voice and bro's to help!

hey bro..welcome to the board and I know what you're going through.I had a major leg injury that was suppossed to take a year to heal,but due to my determination and drive to excel,it only took me about 5-6 months to heal.I was back at the gym and pushing that weight like I always have.I'm still slightly a little off from where I was but not by much..if you have the drive and determination,you will succeed my brother..take it easy and again,welcome to the fold........

welcome, and wow thats great that you have the drive to get back to where you were in size and strength... about the neck exercises.. have you tried the neck machine that you tilt your head side to side against a resistance bar/pad? that might be a good way to slowly get your stregth back and get used to working the neck.. just a suggestion,

Nightop ,,,,,,,,been on the machine for a month or so ,kinda hurt for a while but it is good now , almost back to a good weight on shrugs and deads ,so I am going to weight till the last of april or first of may to start the cycle !!!! , as you all know if your not 100% gear is a waste of time and money !
