    I'm Steve AKA Stamina, I don't know most of you so I'll post my bio

    5' 11

    205lbs

    I fluctuate with my goals. I mainly try to put on mass but if I see my belly is gaining mass as well, then I switch to a light weight routine with alot of reps to trim the fat.

    I want to get up to about 225 of solid mass. At my biggest point I was 218 which was about 3 years ago. My body started rejecting the weight at that point so rather than fight the inevitable, I just gave in and ended up dropping to about 190.

    I am a power lifter and believe in the big Three! My favorite exercises are:

    Deadlifts

    Shoulder Shrugs

    Weighted Dips

    Incline Bench press

    Standing Military Presses

    I train 3-4 times a week depending on my work/life schedule. I also play Softball twice a week and Football once a week.

    What are your favorite quotes for fitness?


    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Pain is your friend, It lets you know you are still alive

    Believe and Achieve

    Big isn't strong. Strong is strong.

    Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.

    When you’re happy and your smiling, haters are frowning. When you have a clear conscious and your mind is free, others are confused. When you can see where you’re going and no longer living in the dark, others are blinded by your light.

    Our own forum! Nice!

    Me:

    Age: 30

    Height: 6'2"

    Weight: 195

    Fitness History: I've been out of shape for a long time. I've always been skinny and even at 195 lbs, I still look pretty skinny. I quit smoking two years ago and started getting serious about working out in November 09.

    Goals: Main goal right now is to add muscle mass. Once I'm happy with the amount of size I put on, I'll focus more on cardio and maybe do P90x -- probably next winter. Would love to do a triathlon some day (half ironman).

    Favorite exercise: The basics... bench, incline bench, squats, dips, and high cable curls.

    My name is Curtis, Im 6'2 1/2-6'3 210 right now. My main goal is to get back up to my weight of 225-230. I lost a lot due to a sickness during my football season. I play football in college so my training is probably different than many of yours.

    My routines usually follow this:

    Monday: Upper Body
    Tuesday: Lower Body
    Wednesday: Heavy Running
    Thursday: Upper Body
    Friday: Lower Body

    Also, on either wednesday or thursday I run at 6:30 in the morning or play an hour of basketball. My "big three" consists of squats, cleans and bench.

    Main goal is get my weight back up. I still need to put on another 15 pounds or so and thats what Im looking to do.

    Haha. It is my favorite. I just mentioned that the bench was in my big three. For my workout, I always superset, and on Friday's I superset cleans with 30 seconds of the jammer. Never felt a burn like that in my life lol.

    Goal: I want to drop my weight below 200 and reduce my bf%.
    Background: I weighed 240 a year ago, so I have lost 28 lbs since then. I did that with a lot of elliptical machine. Now I want to drop my weight a little more and reduce my bf%. My bf% is around 30 right now and I would love to get it down to 20.

    Lately, I have been doing circuit training as my main workout. I've been doing bicep curls, lateral shoulder raises, tri kickbacks, bent over rows, push ups, squats, and lunges with a 45 second cardio move in between each. I've been using jumping jacks for this. One time through takes about 12 minutes and I do two circuits 3-4 times per week.
