  • Where is everyone at?

    Just curious where the BBM forum people are from, and in case I ever decide to do a local powerlifting meet it would be cool to know someone else who may be there! I'm in Chicagoland, Illinois.

    Norfolk/Virginia Beach area.

    I’ll add that the forum’s profile section has an “about” page which I pursue for various posters frequently, usually to find it unpopulated.

      Cheers; I'm here as well. I think this area is ripe for a BBM seminar!

      Well, considering Jordan high tailed it outa here after finishing his doctorate at EVMS, he might let the area cool off a bit. I'd prefer a camp myself though.

      That's really cool. I am also located in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area. I have asked him a few times on his live chat to do a seminar in this area.

          JurisSquatter Look how awesome you are bringing together the community ***sending virtual high five ****

          Serack I guess I never thought about really filling it out or looking at other community members pages... Maybe I will contemplate filling it out ... Sidebar... I think they should add a “goal’s” section and a “what are you reading” section. I think both would add another dimension and color to the profile that could help the BBM community encourage each other in the goals. The books we are reading, well that’s cause I’m a geek, find it fascinating and love a good read.

            What genres? I'm a SF/F geek myself, trending more to the F lately. I'm actually between books at the moment, but the last book I read was Sanderson's Oathbringer. I'm an avid fan of Jim Butcher's Dresden files. Avid doesn't quite cover it.

            Edit: Actually, I suppose technically, you could say I'm in the middle of reading "Peace Talks" but I don't have control over when I get to read each chapter, with weeks in between sometimes. I'm one of his Beta Readers.

              I'm in Ohio but I hail from the mighty frozen tundra of Minnesota.

              My goal is to be the worlds strongest watchmaker (sadly I may have already achieved this.)

              I'm currently reading;

              The Dark Tower (re-reading)

              Locke and Key

              The Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy

              Alexander of Macedon 356-323bc: a historical biography

              War God
              Keep Getting Stronger!

                From Texas, residing in Oregon for now.

                Goals: train consistently for the foreseeable future and see where I end up. Right now, I’m focused on body weight press and 500lb squat, but we’ll see what comes.

                Reading: im a grad student, reading various books on pragmatism, American philosophy and democracy/community organizing. ATM, “Reveille for Radicals.”

                For fun, just read Ancillary Justice by Anne Lecke; great recent sci fi.

                  Genres... hmmm... well I like many as long as they are not scary (don't judge) or romance (yuck). I am a bit embarrassed to say I am not reading anything fun or junkie right now. I am in the middle of a couple books all mental health related because well.... that's what I do and I love my job. Sooo currently reading Dialectical behavior therapy for Binge eating and Bulimia (exciting isn't it!!), also End Emotional Eating which is also using Dialectical Behavior Therapy.... I know right, just enthralling!! While driving/cleaning/cooking I am listening to a book Unstuck ....I know all very very exciting material!! I guess I really should try some lighter reading....OH WAIT I just read the Hunger Games blog part 1 and 2 and loved it, however, he kept mentioning about a psychological part and this is what I was most interested in reading but for the life of me I can't find that part to the Blog I was verklepmt (although I am highly aware it is probably user error on my part, and it's there somewhere).
