Over 20 Years

Over 2o years ago I was an avid martial arts competitor and power lifter, weighing 135 pounds. I had a goal of becoming a doctor with a degree in biochemistry. Obviously sports medicine was my dream, but something changed this: I became a bodybuilder. I read every magazine (between studies) available concerning bodybuilding and trained exactly as outlined. I ate what the magazines said I should; I used the supplements they promised would "add 20 pounds of muscle in only 10 days" and gained about 10 LBS... eventually. Something was really wrong. First, I began my quest for mass by researching every known available paper on training, nutrition, and yes.anabolic/androgenic steroids (AAS). Next I did a survey of a profound number of bodybuilders and athletes. 30 months later I weighed 230LBS with 9 % body fat and had not yet administered a single AAS. Not bad, I suppose, for 5'7'. But genetics are merely "accepted" (unnecessarily) limitations. Science has answers for all those who will learn. There is unlimited scientific research available. But putting the complete maximum-results-puzzle together took time.

My next project was to learn the growth mechanisms beginning at the cellular level, and yes, anabolic chemistry. Next stop 270 LBS at 10% body fat. However, this took far too much time in my opinion. To cut the story short, I can now manipulate my body weight 30 LBS in 60 days, or less. I am not claiming that this was the healthiest approach, nor am I endorsing the use of any drug by any stretch of the imagination. I am merely reporting upon the facts derived from several athletes personal experiences as well as my own.

I started a professional training and sports rehab company and did part time research and development for various supplement companies. This added nicely to my bank account but failed to be interesting or progressive. Most supplement companies want cheap, not effective, products.

Training and writing became the primary outlet for knowledge gathered through studies, research, and at times from rather bizarre sources. To say I truly love the human body as the supreme expression of art is simplistic at best.
