I started probably at age 14-15 with a concrete weight set and a bench press.

I inhaled way too much concrete dust, I am sure.

15yrs old, the year was 1977. I owned two books on lifting. Arnold's, Education of a Bodybuilder, and Pumping Iron. I bought a concrete weight set, and a bench.

The movie, Pumping Iron had come out about that time. I wanted to look like those guys.

I had thought I was going to tell another story by the thread title.

25. I had just lost 150 pounds and decided I didn't like being small and weak.
