Introduction

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.

    Ron! Woe brother. I thought life was over at 50. I don't know anyone that looks that good in their 30's. Question though about your motto,"If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything". Were did you get that from? I like it and it could apply in just about everything. P.S. Thanks for giving of yourself to help others.

    Hey Ron <BR> I read a lot of your posts and I think it's great that we have somebody like you to answer some of our questions... there's one that I really would like to know, I really am trying to go to the gym on a regular basis but i never know if I'm doing the right things and/or eating right. I'm 5'9 - 23 yo. and Im looking to gain muscle mass and lose a little body fat such as love handles. So my "calculated daily requirements" said I should eat 400 g of carbs, is that Right??? I really don't know what to eat then... but is it okay to eat all these carbs when i'm also trying to lose some fat????? Thank you so much for your attention!

    Yes Honey you should write a book, I have been telling him that for two years, maybe with hearing it from someone else he might jump in there and start one at least. Love you baby:)
