    Ok bro's...no laughing now...

    Just started a fina cycle today, thought I would post the before pic and maybe a couple more at intervals to show whatever progress may come of it...for the record: 38 yrs old, 6ft, 200 pounds. Have lifted since 14, but lost EVERYTHING in a bike accident that gave me that cool looking ball and chain you see there...trying to get back in the saddle if ya know what I mean....later.

    The only humor I found in the pic was that upon first glance of you flexing i saw the white car in the background and it has 2 gray blocks on the roof.. I thought it was a cop car for a second and I got to thinking "better hide the AS" haha

    Anyways bro, go tear it up... like everyone said you've got lots of heart. And your traps look awesome already. Best of luck!!

    yea, I got some time on the bench...started lifting at 14 yrs old...through junior/senior high and on into my time with the Marines...got out in 89, about 200 pounds, could run for MILES and was a very physical animal...april 14 1997 I had my accident...went from 230 to 151 in two f***ing weeks...lost everything I ever worked for JUST THAT QUICK..so let that be a lesson...dont be stupid on your motorcycle...it really CAN happen to you....(but so can the GOOD things in life....)

    Dude, you look good, got some good size specially the traps and delts...also I sense a bit of whimsicalness in your pose as well as strength. I wish you the best of luck in all your lifting endeavors and find your story motivating.

    I just started riding so this is sobering to see. A buck twenty? You must have been on a crotch rocket...my buddies all got these this summer, I opted for the Harley. More my style...big and loud, not too fast though. Sorry to hear about this bro.

    But you are really an inspiration. The fact that you're in the weight room working with what you've got anyway is great. Good luck with the cycle! Looks like you've got some muscle to start with already.

    I laughed alright, I was laughing to myself thinking of all these f*cks who make up lame as excuses of why they can't get in shape, then I run into a guy like yourself with an unfortunate accident but it doesn't get you down... Much respect bro, looking forward to seeing the after pics

    Peace

    Hey man:

    Congrats on the dedication to get back into this journey of lifting.

    I also teach motorcycle class. I always tell my students, "it is not if you will drop your bike, it is when". Can you still ride. I have seen people with amputations do some amazing things.

    You are an insperation and some motivation for me.
    just a couple of questions. How does it feel to work out one leg? I know its akward when I do single legs but how about the squats? Shit it'll be cool for you to talk "Ya I put up 400 on squats" someone who doesnt know you will be all that aint nothing. Then bust in in a pair of shorts and watch his jaw drop 8). And I bet your stabalizers will BLOW up quick and your abductors. Good luck and keep posting.

    thanks for the wordz bro...i dont do squats, for obvious reasons...i just dont have the leverage with whats left of the right leg, above the knee...if i DID do them, sooner or later my "residual limb" or stump, would bust through the bottom of the 5000 dollar socket for the leg (the camoflage part you see in the pic)...with no health insurance, i sure cant afford that....one legged leg press and calf raise are about it...I dont want to risk blowin out the knee either....i hate walkin on crutches...chicks dont like crutches......lol

    Bro,

    I'm definitely not laughing but applauding. Hell, I'll give you a standing ovation. After my car accident a couple of years ago where my sternum became very friendly with my steering wheel I gave up all hope of being in decent shape. In fact I became a helpless fat slob.
    I just recently decided to get off my ass and get back into the game. You have definitely inspired me to stop procrastinating and take care of business.

    Thanks for showing us that nothing should stand in our ways.
