Hi all, I’ve finally decided to kick off my new year with the V-Diet. I guess I should start off with a little background on myself: I’m a 21 y.o. college kid attending school in Hawaii, but originally from WA. I started hitting the weight room at around 15, and noticing the gains that I was making got me really hooked. Ever since then I’ve fiddled with lots of supps and all that other teenage-BS, and after a while (as expected) I started to sort of plateau in my training, but still kept at it nonetheless. I’ve had number of phases when it came to training principles; for the most part, I’ve really been into the whole body training approach with compound lifts and whatnot.
About a year ago, I took up downhill mountain biking, and I’ve found a seemingly everlasting love for careening down a mountain as fast as possible. Because of this my time at the gym has pretty much come to a halt compared to my earlier years. It was only until this past summer that I’ve decided to dust off the training log and re-ignite the old passion for lifting. I’m prepared to set aside the two-wheeled steed for a little while in order to commit to this program. I figure this program will be a good kick in the ass for me in terms of getting my training and ESPECIALLY my nutrition in line, since I have guidance through the diet’s outlines as well as support from awesome coaches and others who are and have been on the V-Diet. All in all, I have a very positive attitude towards completing this. Besides, I’d shoot myself to think that I spent almost $600 just to bitch out.
Anyway, I didn’t take any measurements yet, but I have taken pictures. I currently weigh in at about 185 lbs.
