Please guys keep this great topic clean. Its about people who gained and their experiences. We have enough cluttered threads.
Borntobe, welcome and why not start a progress thread that is all about you and your goals. Obviously if you state provocatively that you are arrogant then you will get provocative replys.
Thank you kindly for the welcome, dickerschwanz. I did not intend to provoke by stating that I was arrogant. It’s just something that generally comes over in the way I speak/write, so I state it out front as something of a disclaimer. However, arrogance is not to be equated with disrespect; I always extend respect first, without waiting for it to be given in return. As I said earlier, I am a PE neophyte and I am here to learn.
My opening post was entirely on topic, albeit it was a hypothetical question, being how many cubic inches would I need to increase by to achieve my goal and where this would place me amongst the biggest gainers. I am not very good with math and so I have addressed my question to BeardedDragon, who appears to be something of a whiz at it. I do NOT plan to start intensive PE right away nor do I expect instant results. I simply want to get a very real idea of the kind of dedication and discipline those before me have had to exercise in order to achieve similar goals.
I shall take your advice about the progress thread as soon as I reach my first measuring day, which will be at the end of this month. I hope I have not offended anyone, but if I have, I sincerely apologise and it was most certainly not my intention to derail this thread. Perhaps I was a little too sensitive about captjohn’s post.
