Talking I guess?

This a good place to say HOWDY!?

I'm Chris, 43, Lic. Massage Therapist, Rehab Therapist, R&D guy for backcountry ski company, former trainer, coach, pro-fighter.

Started Martial Arts at 4, trained in boxing, wrestling, TKD, Kyokusin, Muay Thai, BJJ, Sambo, Escrima/Kali, Krav Maga, Hapkido, etc...

Started lifting weights around 8(?). Love my OLY lifts and variations. Do a little powerlifting. All for re-creational purposes. Love to recruit the young guys away from "curls4girls" to "compounds for the soul".

Other hobbies - hunting, hiking, mtn. & road biking, backcountry splitboarding, snowboard mountaineering, spending time with my dogs in the mountains, animals, books!!!!!!

Nutritional philosophy - Paleo, been 100% for 1 yr. Wasn't easy in beginning since my girlfriend is a Pastry Chef.

Stats - 6'1.75" 230lbs. @ 8%bf. You could say I'm an endurance athlete that loves to lift.

Just wanted to say HOWDY!

Welcome aboard. That is some pretty diverse stuff you got going on.
