After sparring when we were putting gear away, one of the senseis I see less often asked if I'd been 'beefing up' as he put it. I told him about the eat and lift plan and the success I've had so far. thanks f&n, I've got a long way to go but little stuff like that is a good encouragement. so far gained 14 lbs and my repped lifts have gone up 85 lbs. I seriously owe it to you guys.
