Who I Am


 

I am what some are calling a multipotentialite – I have many skills and interests that I am balancing and trying to make useful. I am curious about everything. This makes it difficult to focus and be disciplined, and I believe this is why I have turned to weight lifting in all its various forms (I still struggle to pick a particular discipline). Discipline is essential for progress in weight training; without discipline, you’ll likely just injure yourself. So, in this way, weightlifting is my method for mental and physical development – a stronger mind and a stronger body.

Personal Goals – goals that pertain to my physical state, skill development, or habits

  • Get to 15% body fat around a weight of 240
  • Compete in a strongman competition
  • Compete in a powerlifting competition in the 242 weight class
  • Earn my USAWL certification in 2016
  • Earn my Precision Nutrition certification in 2016
  • Squat 475 pounds by the end of 2016
  • Deadlift 550 pounds by the end of 2016
  • Overhead Press 225 pounds by the end of 2016
  • Bench Press 335 by the end of 2016
  • Run a sub 8 minute mile by June 2016

I am also a certified fitness trainer through International Sports Sciences Association and a licensed massage therapist in Pennsylvania and California.

  1. I am certainly inspired by your goals, I too love travel and photography – neither of which I do much of at the moment. But then again, it’s all about having the passion and the goals! Here’s to loving life as we reach them!

  2. Thank you, Bukky! I find that I certainly must love the process as much as reaching the goals in order to make it all work. Thanks for stopping by!
