I wandered over here from the gripboard about a month ago. I have been reading some of the great posts and articles. Seems like there are a lot of very knowledgeable people here regarding one of my passions - old time strength training.

I'm 42 and got back into strength training about 12 months ago after rehabbing post back surgery on a severely herniated disk. Strangely enough, I am stronger now than I have ever been in my life. I concentrate on the basics: squat, DL, overhead press, bench press, etc. I also incorporate kettlebells into my workouts. Everything is raw except for a belt on heavy squats and DLs (I still don't trust this back yet <_< ).

My biggest passion in the strength arena is grip strength. I am a certified mashmonster level 1 and bastard nail bender. I recently qualified for and competed in the US Hand Strength National Championships where I placed 8th.

I look forward to learning a lot from y'all and hopefully providing some input from time to time. Thanks!

What's going on buddy? I have learned a ton of stuff since I have come on over. I spend most of my time reading, occasionally I will make a post here and there. Good to "see a familiar face."

Edit: Tell the truth....you're only posting because the board is down and you need your fix. :lol:

Chris, Mike- we take in strays here :lol: Good to have each of you here even if your first passion is grip. As you know, the gripboard is not in conflict with us- we are part of the same supersite: cyberpump, which in November will be 15 (FIFTEEN) years old! How many other iron sites have been on the web that long? Kudos to Bill Piche, his vision and his constant work to improve the technology and offer all of us the best sites on the internet. That's my opinion, of course. Anyway, drop by when you can, and thanks for the kind words.
