Default Introduction

Hey, I'm 22, 6' 1", 216 lbs and I've been lifting again (consistently) for around 5 months now. I actually started in High School, 3 years on the weightlifting team before I came to college (currently finishing my 4th year). I stopped for so long because my coursework became too demanding, and didn't start until I met my best friend, and the woman I love. She wanted to get into weight lifting in order to lose weight and build some muscle. She re-invigorated my love and interest for lifting. I've made significant gains and improvements over the last few months, and I'm motivated to make more.

I'm also very much a nerd, I do a lot of numerical and graphical strength/workout analysis stuff using Python. It's provided some useful insight for me personally, and I hope to expand on it.

My favorite lifts are the power clean (with more emphasis on upper body strength), push press, and bench press of course! I deadlift and squat as well, but less lately because of an ankle injury I suffered a few months ago, so putting too much weight on it still produces some agitation.

Anyway, thanks for reading my long intro!

Welcome. Good to see another lifting couple. Went the other way around for me (and the missus), but it's worked out the same - we train together, and both love it.
