new and determined
 
Hi forum, thought i'd join up after seeing some good BBOD videos over the last few days and liking the info being spread, specifically about just beating the last workout and how consistency matters most.

I've been training, TRYING to get strong, for about 3 years now. I say trying because injuries really take their toll on any progress i make. Chronic knee pain that comes and goes as it pleases, low back pain that has thankfully been gone for a long time now and lately my shoulder is starting to bitch.

Somehow i have still managed to get to 90kg(200lb) bodyweight, up from about 70(150) when i first started (both at 6'2''). Despite this weight gain, i still look like a skinny noob that has never touched a weight and my numbers suggest the same. Estimated maxes being 70/75/120kg... which is clearly embarassing but thats what a brittle body will do. Although, when i started i could barely, if even, lift have of that weight.

Im determined to finally reach a respectable strength level this year. Hopefully i can learn from the strong people on this forum and progress with consistency at last.

Thanks for reading.

Thanks Lee and Elite.. Hopefully a more serious atmosphere will force me to take my own lifting more seriously.

Thanks. I lift in a small garage that doesnt allow for the best filming angles, but i'll record my squat and deadlift on monday as best i can.
