What Brought You To SS!?5009

NorIda private msg quote post Address this user
Simple Question! Do you remember what originally brought you to SS!? A friend, random google search?

For me, I was looking for motivation and happened to fall across an interview on the site. I continued to read a few more Interviews, saw the forum link. Then BAM, saw some of the posts from certain guys, and I was hooked!

So, what brought YOU To SS?

Ha I wanted to make a post like this yesterday! I was looking up stuff about nutrition and stumbled upon Adam chareltons page and was like damn I wanna look like that! This site is what got me interested in getting the best physique I can possibly get and more importantly educated me about proper nutrition!

Random Google search about cutting, found that deadline diet article and then didn't stop reading articles after that.

Then made my way onto the forums because it looked quite small and friendly but full of great info
Places like BB.com scare me because there are so many people and often questions just get shot down.

I was pretty much just searching for information on lifting and nutrition and came across some articles on here. When I checked out the forums, everyone seemed pretty chill and like you all knew your stuff a lot better than me, so I decided to join.

Josef Rakich's bodyspace had this website on it (Yes, I was mirin). So I looked at it and read few things. I liked it.

Never really was in the forums. Joined to ask just one question and found out how great the folks in it really are. Therefore, I am still here.

Dwatson posted a thread like this when I first joined the boards.

One of the links led me to SS. Then I checked out the forum tab. You guys seemed to have a lot of good knowledge so I signed up.

Hoping to become a staple around here.

Haha! @Ek, Benching Contest? Go!

@Roar, Can I have that chicks number? She's gotta be cool if she's checking out SS!

@eventheodds1 Idk who that dude is... But glad you're stickin' around! Lol.

@skullay Dang! Dwat beat me to it! And I thought it was an original question! haha Did you ever do GVT?! aka 10x10

@lift4life I agree BB.com is all about trollin and no information seems to be spread around. Nothin like the solid group of guys we have here!

@Jelet zzzzzyzzz video? Did you sleep through it? =P

@stahmz Me too, I lurked forever before joining tho!

@Flippo4 You should've made the thread man! haha. I was layin in bed last night and fell asleep thinking about a new thread.. haha

@eventheodds1 not impressed by this kid especially since he sells 'the perfect ab routine', i actually emailed him asking WTF?

@eknight Oh Lawd, i remember this day.. I was a hater then!

@skullay kinda confused here.. lol but yes i ran GVT with @MyOwnEntity. neither of us liked it and soon went back to PHAT.


I had a guy from work link a fat loss article to my dad. He sent it to me and i read a bunch of the articles. Wasn't really into body building much then. like 6 months later i started reading up again on some stuff and started gettin back into it. I usually was on for 3-4 off for 1-2 repeat. Well i found the forum tab and it is the ONLY one my work didn't block. So i lurked a few hours and signed up. Never thought i'd be where im at today regarding SS, but everything happens for a reason. Now i've met a BUNCH of great guys and great friends that i communicate outside of SS i would have never met.

My first POST!

a kid on facebook linked an article about caffeine then read multiple articles on the site. the reason i got into the forum was because i wanted to thumbs up some comments on a thread about weed and then after that i posted here and there. Now, i am mostly a lurker.

Yeah why?

It was right after the hunting season. I usually hit it hard until the hunting season, then take 2 months off and then back on (Like i said above haha) But it will be different this year of course.

When i took those 1.5 months off i got down to 158lbs.. i weighed the December 3rd last year.
