I am Nick Anton (short for Antonogiannis). I am 23 old and I am from Greece.
The first time I began training religiously was when I was 10 years old. I had broken my elbow when I was 9, and my father suggested that I do some push ups to make my broken arm strong again. I didn’t have any training knowledge, so I was only doing one set of push ups every morning. I started with 5 and I reached 60. The goal was 70 to win 50 $, but I never reached that goal.
When I reached 12, I started having some trouble with my broken arm. I had a bone infection and in the next 6 years I did 5 bone cleansing operations. As a result, I couldn’t train for 7 years.
Fortunately, 4 years ago everything seemed well and the doctor gave me the “Ok” to start training again. I never stopped since then.
In the beginning, I started training with simple plans as I didn’t have any knowledge. Even though my plans were simple, I started getting some results.
I achieved my first skills (the one arm push up and pistol) when I read and started to train with the methods suggested by Pavel in “Naked Warrior”. A year later I found Ross Enamait and I invested in “Never Gymless”.These two books have been made the biggest influence in my training.
During all this time, I was training mostly with bodyweight exercises because I didn’t have access to weights and training equipment.
Lately, I have been experimenting with gymnastics and I have started to see some great results as well.
