I started out in grade 9 or 10 and I went 3-4 months 3x a week. I basically just stopped after that till I was 19 and decided I don't want to be skinny anymore. Part of it was for girls, but most of it was for myself. I now want to compete. I'm majoring in Computer Science and I don't want to look like I am. I plan to be a programming bodybuilder, which will be a very weird combo.
