    (18) Meaning behind your tattoos, if any? What would you like to get? Why?
    None. I want to get a huge Koi fish design / Japanese influenced, that culture has always intriqued me, since I began studying Karate when I was 12.

    [QUOTE=*Bunny*]

    (1) What is your favorite body part to train and/or Favorite Lift?
    My all-time favorite lifts are the incline press (barbell) and the front squat.

    [B](2) Why do you make it a point to train? What’s in it for you!?[/B
    I've always been a weightroom junkie. I've always gravitated towards strength-sports and it is just what I like to do. I feel it promotes self-improvement and makes me a better person. I also think it spills over positvely into other aspects of my life by building character, confidence, and work-ethic.

    (3) Do you have a Favorite Meal? Lets hear it! Healthy AND the cheat preferences! Healthy; Filet Mingon and lobster tail with a baked potato and Caesar salad.
    Cheat; Open-faced meatload sandwich with grave, fries covered in gravy, coleslaw, and a slice of Key Lime pie.



    (4) Do you need to listen to music when you train?
    I don't NEED to, but I prefer to. When I listen to music, it can always have an effect on my mood and intensity, and when doing something physical I find it helps me.

    (5) What do you like to listen to while training?
    Unlike most of my friends, I don't really like super heavy stuff or anything where it sounds like the lead singer is puking into the microphone. Mostly I listen to Weezer, 80s stuff like Poison and Motley Crue, lots of rap, some metal of course, I like Danzig a lot.

    (6) Do you have an IPOD, walkman, MP3, etc?
    Nope

    (7) How many pills do you take a day? :eek:
    Not very many...in a day maybe 4 grams of Vit-C (4 pills) and 1 multi, and a B-Complex.

    (8) Do you have a favorite supplement? Vitamin? Top 3 & Why?
    No, I am not a very big believer in the supplement industry as a whole. As far as Vitamins, I feel it is important for athletes to take in an abundance of water-soluble vitamins that are lost through sweat and urination (from excessive water consumption).

    (9) What annoys you MOST about training?
    What annoys me most are people who spread outright lies, inaccuracies, myths, half-truths, and deceptions to the uninformed public in order to make a buck.

    (10) How many days a week do you train? Times a day? For how long?
    This really varies. My heavy, high-volume days are 2-2.5 hours, lighter or low-volume days are between an hour-an hour and a half. I train anywhere from 3-6 days a week.

    (11) How much cardio do you REALLY do?
    Right now, just 1 day of HIIT, if that.

    (12) Do you feel bad about treating yourself to good food for a reward/cheat? Why or why not?
    NEVER, lol. I am not the strictest of dieters though. If I eat some junk, I don't mind so long as I have gotten enough protein and good stuff from clean sources. The thing I found that held back my progress at times is being too strict with my eating and not hitting caloric excess.

    (13) What fast food restaurant/food do you prefer?
    Wendy's (everything on the menu) and Taco Bell (everything on the menu)

    (14) Beverage of choice? Regular and/or Alcohol.
    Milk is my all-time favorite (whole, 2%, 1%, skim, chocolate, whatever) I love milk. Lately I have been on a diet Moutain dew kick too. I like unsweetened iced tea also. I don't have a huge taste for alcohol, but my drinks of choice are either red wine or Guinness or some sort of lite beer depending on the mood/company.

    (15) On a scale from 1-10 how competitive are you?
    In a competitive situation, a 10. Although, I never let it cause me to be a poor sportsman. In a non-competitive situation, I am laid back (meaning I have no problem letting my 5 year-old female cousin beat me at arm wrestling, lol).

    (16) Receive compliments from other members/trainers/staff at the gym? Critique? How does it make you feel?
    Yes. Compliments are always good. I've never, ever received any form of critique at a commercial gym. When I learned how to clean and snatch in the old weightroom back in the day, lol, I received tons upon tons of critique. The o-lifts are very technical, and I still get torn apart by a good coach when I go to a REAL gym to work on some stuff. But, at the commercial gym, "Joe I got certified on the internet" makes a point not to cross my path, lol.

    (17) What do you like to work out in?
    Mesh shorts, and a t-shirt or tank top, and my olympic lifting shoes.

    (18) Meaning behind your tattoos, if any? What would you like to get? Why?
    I have one going down each tricep. They are my parent's initials (dad's on the right, mom's on the left). My dad died when I was very young, so I always wanted to do something with that in a tattoo. I thought the triceps were 'different'. You can't tattoo 1 tricep and let the other go, lol, so I put my mom's (who is alive and well) on the other. My mom comes from an era when only sailors and inmates got tats, so she said 'you should have tattooed a-hole across your forehead' lol.....I may or may not get one more on the upper back, I haven't decided.

    (19) What would you change most about your gym if you had the final say?
    We need bumper plates.

    (20) Have you ever stopped to help someone, offer advice or your opinion without being asked?
    I will help anybody who asks me. I ONLY approach younger lifters with unsolicited advice though. I will also approach to compliment younger lifters when they do things right too. If something is looking downright dangerous to the point where somebody would seriously get hurt and I wouldn't be able to live with myself for not intervening, I'd say something.

    (21) Favorite show RIGHT NOW?!?!
    Any and all college football

    Athletic shorts, t-shirts w/sleeves removed, some great shirts my Mom got for me from LL Bean (fabric that wicks away that moisture). I'm not much for showing alot of skin while working out.

    None for me. Never cared for them.

    (19) What would you change most about your gym if you had the final say?
    Make it mandatory for everyone to wipe down equipment when finished. Add another squat rack and bigger variety of upper body equipment.
