    Hi all,

    I used to lurk way back in the day when this forum first started and it definitely helped to motivated me.

    My question now is what happened here? Seems like the newest posts are over a month old. Did everyone leave, or am I missing something?

    It has definitely died down. :(

    This kind of health & fitness information wasn't as prevalent on the web when I started coming here - the most readily available info was spoon fed broscience from supplement & exercise equipment marketers - but now there are app communities (LoseIt, MyFitnessPal, etc.) and self-sorting message boards (/r/fitness on reddit) to choose from.

    Seems like a lot more information with less community. I'm not sure. I'm still here (or, rather, am back here) 'cause of the people, and there's still a few of 'em left. :nod:

    Well thanks for the reply, and hello! I guess we can chat back and forth..lol

    Just started an 11 week transformation, in 3 days and it's going awesome. I'm using the old Swolegenix diet if anyone remembers it. My body absolutely loves this type of diet and I have a lot of muscle memory to get back after taking a several year layoff to grow my business (excuse alert, could have worked out just chose not too!)

    This time I'm going for it though!

    You should start a journal to log your progress.

    What is the Swolegenix diet?

    Bodybuilder/Trainer Chris "SwoleCat" Janusz used to frequent these forums and would do personal consultations for people online. He called his plan "Swolegenix."

    He died a couple of years ago. :(

    I still have my program somewhere. I vaguely remember 10x10 squats. Just threw up a little in my mouth thinking about 'em.

    If we want to get this place hopping again, we just need to circulate that video someone made of all of John's photos, showing a time elapse success. That would hit the media systems and the forums would get flooded with newbies.

    saw it happen two or three times over the years.
