Well, you all are the best here, and I really enjoy this board. But I have to let you all know that I am giving up the TKD for the bodybuilding. Yes, the iron sport. I am hooked. I have been going to the weight lifting gymnasium for about 6 months now, and decide that it is my way. I have recently had a discussion with some weight lifter who told me that I was doing things all wrong. Well, how is that for a fine how-do-you-do? Right. All wrong! I will now engage in the stronglifts.com 5x5 method for at least 2 months. If I gain strength nicely, I will keep on it until I can squat my own body weight times 1.5. That's right -- one and one half times my own mass with the squat. At that time I will discard the 5x5 for the body building / isolation exercises, because I will then have a strong base. I will not practice the Scott-Little method, because I prefer the full range of motion -- big motions. They are more pleasing to me. After all, I am a TKD man at heart, and I like BIG, explicit motions! I have started taking the creatine and the protein powder, because I do not eat much red meat or fish. I do know that form is EVERYTHING! As I start this journey (on Monday -- that will be the first day of the 5x5!) I have to make sure my technique is good. The squat, IF DONE WITH PROPER FORM, can be GOOD for the knees. I will study and try to learn this, and also try to get feedback from some adept lifter in my gym. So, I will continue to look at this nice board, but also will surf to other communities where people lift, to get BIG. All show, no go. That's me. I want to look like a freaking million dollars from the neck down by this time next year. I also want to have sufficient knowledge of this "iron sport" to not get injury in my neck up! So, wish me luck! I also want to show you one video that I think is funny. It is of a powerlifter named Kirk Karwoski. You can't really tell what is going on in the video because there is no sound. But it looks as though someone asks him to pose, and then he waves them off, as if to say, "Enough of that sissy posing, I am a power lifter, not a bodybuilder!" Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!
