So I took up bowling. I loved it from the beginning and next to golf and powerlifting (of the many sports I've dedicated to) it's the most technical. I put in a buttload of practice and after about 10 years got really competitive. However, I would have rather invested (what became 30 years) on and off in to something more physical and potentially higher paying, much higher. After sponsorship, the best, most flourishing barely live off of a career in Pro Bowling.

Even though having bowled many sanctioned 300 games, 800 series and competing successfully at a regional level, nothing compares to my recent PRs I set last week in Lifting!
Wow, multiple 300's is amazing!

Living in the now and enjoying it is everything! Good perspective!

I think that is still your fitness moment!

You invested 12 years of example to get him there and it reveals a good relationship if he emulates you and is achieving as well.

Awesome contribution!

Awesome stuff in this thread!

First thing that popped in my head was that miracle squat I hit in my first meet. I had no business even trying it, much less expecting to get it, but amazingly it went up. I still expect it to be a miss even when I watch now.

Haha. Probably haven't tried that hard on a squat rep since!

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
