    Became interested in bodybuilding and the human body after spending 2 years of college playing soccer on scholarship. I could never dedicate the time or energy to a legitimate program due to the time and energy requirements of college athletics. I spent these 2 years studying and doing my own independent study of the things i was interested in. Finished my 2 years at jc and denied further scholarship to pursue an education in exercise science and dedicate my free time building the physique I always wanted. I have since competed in 3 bodybuilding shows and preparing for a fourth and fifth. I have been personal training for 4 years and specialize in total physique transformation and performance training. I am pursuing a MS in human performance and a natural pro card. 23 years old with an equal interest for nutrition and training.

    Certificate 3 and 4 in Fitness
    Level 1 Strength and Conditioning certificate

    I picked up my first weights when I was 15 as I was sick of being the smallest kid in my year and began a lifelong love affair with lifting. In 2003 I decided to try and make a career out of my hobby and entered the meat-grinder that is the fitness industry as a certified Personal Trainer. I discovered a few things in this period, 1/ I hadn't known jack about training before this point in time, 2/ I didn't know jack about running a business, and 3/ I had not patience for babysitting people who didn't want to help themselves. I lasted 18 months but in this time learnt more about lifting hard and heavy than I knew there was to learn and added around 20kg to my little frame. I've since turned my eye to Powerlifting and a gym total of 590kg at 92kg with a 200kg squat, 160kg bench and 230kg deadlift. I train with a WSB template and plan to enter my first comp early next year. I have also done a couple of Smolov cycles and have researched Sheiko and 5/3/1 training extensively. My future goal is to achieve a Raw Elite total (669kg in my current weight division). I'm 27 years old and a lifetime natural lifter.

    There are few things graven in stone, except that you have to squat or you're a pussy.

    Hi All.

    Name: Tim
    Training Age: 15

    Weight: 85-90kg (past 5yrs heaviest 93kg, lightest 75kg)
    BF: low teens
    Qualifications: PhD (science), BSc (Hons) (NB qualifications not in this field, this is my hobby field).

    Squat: 165kg (high bar Olympic ATG)
    Bench: 140kg x3
    Deadlift: 211kg
    Snatch: 90kg
    C&J: 110kg

    I was first inspired to lift by my primary school teacher who met Arnie. I got my first dumbbell set at 15, but didn't start seriously training until 18-19. My first day in the gym I made it half-way through the workout before throwing up from pushing myself too hard. I've been lifting ever since. I've played competitive football (AFL), a couple of local lift-offs and have intentions to compete in state level weightlifting as soon as I stop injuring myself in the contest prep (I have a light frame). If I move closer to the city for work I also want to compete in BBing.

    I was the scrawny kid at school and when I joined the gym I weighed 55kg. I have trained in most styles, made all of the mistakes there are to make, had a raft of injuries (complete knee reconstruction 4yrs ago) and I now train in my backyard. Having made all the mistakes and suffered at the hands of BBing mythology I have little time for BS. I'm a training journeyman, but it is all about the journey after all.

    Some pics of me lifting:
