My name is Patrick, and while I've lifted unenthusiastically occasionally throughout the years, starting in high school, I've never really made any special commitment to it- that is until now.

I go to school at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, which has an epic gym, recently built. Once winter break ends, I'm going to head back there, although I'm preparing myself for it at home with some dumbbells and a bench.

I'm a disciple of Jesus, so I'm approaching bodybuilding from a spiritual perspective- basically, just loving my body the way I want to love Christ's Body- by caring for it, respecting it, and building it up so it can be strong and powerful, thoroughly useful.

My theme scripture is Ephesians 4:15-16

"Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."

Nice to meet you all- I look up to you guys a lot already!
Welcome to the forum. Richmond is my old stomping ground. Lived and worked there for years.

Looking forward to seeing you have a great 2011 and hitting your goals.
