Hi All - I'm a new member and am pretty impressed with the info that I have had time to read. There seem to be some very experienced board members who are willing to offer good advice and real world experience that counts a whole lot. I've been doing it as a natural and plan to stay on that track so I hope that's ok with the members who have taken a different path. Even for a natural there is a heck of a lot of good imformation on this Board. The way I look at it a BB is a BB. Anyone who takes it seriously, tries to learn from others and by trial and error is part of the fraternity. It is real interesting science from both a nutrition and a training viewpoint. I look forward to following the discussions and maybe being a part of a few. For what it's worth I do compete as a Masters - over 40 and have managed to add about 5-8 lbs of LBM this past year, so I'm in there plugging away.
