I am not sure if I have missed more than a week since I started at age 14. Some of that time was spent doing some really unproductive training though. I started lifting for football, and started training with a group of powerlifters when I was 17. I was strong for a high school kid, but needed a lot of form advice. In college our training program wasnt great by any means. Initially my biggest motivation was lifting to get a scholarship to play football. After college I played in the Arena league, so lifting became a way to help me make money. At this point I lift because I have in my mind that one day I will be one of the strongest people to ever compete in powerlifting. Honestly its something I live, breath, eat, sleep, dream about!

So the short answer is this, even after two major surgery I found a way to train the next week. As motivation, I want to be the strongest man on the planet
