I love hearing everyones' fitness backgrounds, it's always fascinating to hear how someone got started. Here's how Marco Pessoa began (and returned to) his own training journey.

Scott




Hey Scott, great to hear from you, and also to be apart of the fitness and strength community. I also did Martial arts when I was 10 yrs old, until I was 18 (I unfortunately couldn't continue because of my physical disability). Now today, I do weight training and isometrics and I just want to become stronger and bigger. Thank you for responding to my email. Have a great day.
Sincerely,
Marco Pessoa


Cheers Marco, greatly appreciated. Love hearing from people starting - and continuing - their training journey. It's a wonderful thing.

I'd love to hear more about your integration of the iron with isometrics - as do a great many members of the community here I suspect. Come and join us in the Google+ area.

Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar - I love hearing how other people are training - get in touch. If you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
