About Al

alhwangHi there! I’m Al, I’m 26, and I currently live in New York where I’m pursuing a career in medicine.

In a past life, I was a software engineer living out in Seattle, and before that, I was actually back here in New York where I got my BS in electrical engineering.

I spend my spare time thinking about lots of random things that include:

  • Semiconductor physics
  • Meat (cured, grilled, roasted, and in some cases, raw)
  • Restaurants I want to go to (Per se, Le Bernardin, Chipotle)
  • Mixed martial arts
  • Modern art
  • Trash TV
  • the social contract

Fitness Stuff

al_athleticAbout half of this blog seems to have become a health and fitness blog (unintentionally), so I figured you might be interested in how I stay fit. I’m 5’8 and 170lbs.

My fitness-related activities include:

  • Weight lifting (mostly just powerlifting)
  • Krav Maga, Boxing, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
  • Distance running
  • Random co-rec sports (basketball, flag football, dodgeball)

The picture to the right is of me standing around like an asshole before a flag football game. You may laugh at the long socks, but the long socks and the garlic I keep in my shoes keep the staph infection away.

Now that I’m back in school and don’t have the time and money to devote to the fight stuff or co-rec sports anymore, I mostly just focus on the power lifting. I also throw in a weekly Krav Maga workout to keep my skills fresh.

If you’ve got any questions about my workouts/dieting, feel free to send me an email.
