Default Hey, new to the forum.

I am new to the forum and thought it would be best to make my first post in the intro section.

Personal info:
Age - 24
Weight - 172 (you wouldn't think so if you saw me, I look too damn skinny)
Height - 6ft

I have always been scrawny, I was never really active, other than BMX riding. I used to ride my bike to work, a 14 mile roundtrip about 4-5 days a week. Plus, I would get bored at home and I would ride just to ride.

Background in weightlifting:
I went to the Vocational Criminal Justice class during the last two years of high school. 3 days a week we had Military Style PT, during the winter this was done at the gym, spring/fall it was outside. I was in mad shape back then. I went to the Criminal Justice class to prep me for the Marines , to keep a LONG story short, I tried to get in for 2.5 years and a stomach disorder kept me out of service. :(
To all of those who are in the service or will be, thank you.

Purpose for lifting:
After 4 years of having a desk job, I have gotten lazy and I am tired all the time. So, I am working on getting into the State Troopers Academy , my tactical side wants out. Plus, I just generally need to get back into shape.

The State Trooper requirements for my body weight:
Bench Press (1 rep max) - 160lbs
Leg Press (1 rep max) - 300lbs
1.5 Mile run time - 13.22mins

So far, I have spent about 2 months in the gym, here is what I have accomplished:
Bench press (1 rep max) - Started at 110lbs, now I am at 140lbs
Leg Press (1 rep max) - Started at 250lbs, now I am at 330lbs
1.5 Mile run time - Don't really know, I have not done a test run yet.

To get to my goals, I have realigned my diet and forced myself to gain 20lbs. I went from 150lbs to 170lbs, I have an extremely high metabolism, so I had to eat a ton. Now that I am at the gym, I hope to keep my weight stable and put on some muscle. I am not lifting to get huge, but mainly just to get back into shape and hopefully see some gain.

You may not see me posting a lot, but I will be around, soaking in all the information on the site.

Future goals:
- Now that my Leg Press requirement has been met, I will focus more on arms/bench.
- Get some ripped abs.
- Lose the belly fat aquired during my weight gain.
- Meet my 1.5 mile run requirement.
