I’m new to the forum. Every breath,
every rep and every set - all for God’s glory! All I really want to do is serve God.
I just turned 52 last month, and I’ve been married for almost 19 years. We have a son who just entered into his teen years. My doctor recently prescribed TRT. They had to teach me how to inject myself, which is something I never thought I’d do.
I absolutely love training! It really helps me feel I’ve accomplished something meaningful. This feeling is enhanced when I help the “kids” in the gym understand how to train properly. I am grateful for any chance to impart wisdom to them.
Even so, I am making the transition from gym membership to a garage gym so I can spend more time with my family… I’m also hopeful that my son will get bit with the irom bug.
With that, my equipment is currently spread out between our basement and a 16x20 shed. At home I can squat, bench (including incline and decline), deadlift and OHP in my small basement. I’m extremely blessed to be able to do that! Hopefully we’ll be able to afford to build a garage in the next two years.
I’ve been trying to focus on my legs for the last three years. I was formally coached at a power lifting gym last year, and my technique definitely improved. I’m my shed I have a plate loaded squat machine, a single and a lying leg curl, plus a leg extension. My legs still suck, but Craigslist has amazing deals if you’re patient.
This is an amazing forum! I actually feel at home here. Based on what I have read, there are some very talented and committed people contributing. I hope to measure up.
