This is my way of life. I practice what I preach. and try to help others achieve their best and reach their goals, whatever they may be. I compete in the masters class in bodybuilding contests, and have over the years learned the best and shortest routes to achieving fitness through nutrition and training, and proper supplementation. I do so enjoy this sport/lifestyle, I think it is the greatest, it is a healthy way of life, a complete lifestyle. I enjoy the aspect of learning something new all the time, and helping others achieve their goals.

To note, I am now 64 yrs. old. Though I am obviously no lonnger a bodybuilder, I STILL hit the gym a minimum of 4 times per week. I still love and live the aspect of a strong, healthy life. I believe my exercise and dietary principles have guided me to wonderful health. I would like to help folks reach the goals they aspire to, thus my contributions to this site. Being one who has lived the gamut so to speak, actually competing in bodybuilding to just wanting to live a long and healthy life, I feel I can inject many do's and don'ts. Good luck to all out there trying to reach goals in health, no matter what it is.

Goals and motivation

New fitness and personal goals are to as always maintain health and fitness level, be proactive in my approach as always. My stepdaughter is now married off, and our plans to make the move out of state to Colorado are in full swing. This will negate me doing any contests this year, as the move takes priority. My gym time will not suffer though in any way, just will not be able to compete this year. Have done a nice bulk because of it, and gained a solid amount of lbm.

    Never mind. Just found an article you wrote from '04. It was very helpful, please keep posting your comments!

    Hi, I've been trying to get back into a workout and just signed up for a gym. I was searching through past conversations and came across your views on cardio, from sometime in 2002. I was going to start incorporating a cardio workout in before my weight training, but I have to say, you really changed my mind. I'm looking to loose fat and gain lean muscle (like millions of others). But now I'm not sure if I want a cardio workout at all, realizing it may not help me loose the fat. I was wondering if your oppinions had changed any since '02. I would appriciate it if you could e-mail a response at timea@bellsouth.net. Thanks.

    Hi bb1fit-- <BR> You have given a lot of good advice through the message boards that I have read. One thread was posted by a guy who asked about cutting down after gaining for a time, and two of the moderators recommended that he contact you about diet and lifting. I'm about to finish the 12-week mass building phase here on ft, so I'm gonna cut down as well. All I know about this is to cut calories, and I think I'm supposed to do it by decreasing carbs; is that true? Would you mind filling me in about the right diet for this? Also I'm confused about what training regimen goes with a cutting phase. Could you also take some time to type some info about that? I am SO thankful that you're sharing your knowledge with us at ft; have a great day.
