Hey, Folks.

My name is Patrick M. Tracy.  I’ve been lifting weights for about 22 years, and it’s a lifelong passion for me.  I’ve tried powerlifting, bodybuilding routines, and strongman stuff along the way.  I’m an enthusiastic amateur, not trying to sell anything, but I have picked up some knowledge from all those years of sweat and blood.  I hope to convey this knowledge to anyone who happens by.

The primary thrust of this site will be to help people build inexpensive, fun, and effective exercise implements that they can use in the garage, basement, or back yard.  I hope this will also prove to be a forum for discussion about anything at all related to exercise or hoisting heavy stuff.  I plan to populate it with articles about strength, as well as a variety of my (possibly) crazy ideas and stunts.

    Hi Patrick, my name is Mark and I run bestrecurvebowguide dot com. I couldn’t find a “Contact” page so I decided to leave a comment here.

    I would like to start a section on my website that would include a few interviews with traditional archery hardcore enthusiasts from around the web. I really liked your website and the passion with which you write about the sport, and decided to get in touch.

    Would this be something that you’d be interested in? If so, just let me know and we can get started immediately (you can just use the e-mail address in this comment). I think it could be quite fun and informative for others.
