Me? I’m Dave, a 50 year-old guy who lives in central Florida and works in IT. I’m also retired military (22 years Air Force).

My interest in fitness and in particular weight training started when I was a young teenager and got my hands on a Conan the Barbarian comic book. Except for the infrequent week off due to moving, travel, unavoidable work commitments, or vacation, I’ve been working out ever since.

I’m not certified and don’t have a degree in nutrition, or exercise, or anything else fitness related. But I’ve been working out a long, long time (35 years). Over that time I’ve figured out a few things, sometimes through painful experience.

I thought I’d share them here.
