Nice perspective Dave
Now I know your name too.
I agree it's amazing what younger kids are doing nowadays, but it is what it is. Guys in the 60's probably thought the same thing when Kazmeir came along. "Holy Crap! How long has this beast been lifting!" HaHa.
Rock on. I'm sure you will get where you want to go.
Oh, and home gyms have their drawbacks too! You don't have to wait for equipment, but you can get interupted by things like the phone, your kids, your wife, whatever. Sometimes I miss the gym as I knew I had that time where no one could find me.
I am Anton Zdravko Martin!

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.
