I started lifting weights in 1989 while I was attending junior college. At that time, Cory Everson was huge in the fitness industry and I really admired her. My baby brother told me I should lift to compete (I was skinny with no muscle tone). His comment planted a seed.
Why I Love it
I love the competition with myself the most, but I also enjoy the limitless possibilities that bodybuilding holds. It is never boring! You can always increase your reps, sets, time, or overall performance...I find that stimulating.
