but damn, you could have just said it was bad. Did not have to say the T word right off the bat[/quote]
your screen name + that avi pic + join date of this month + Abercombie Workout + “dont wanna be a muscled meathead” comment = very possible troll post
There are TONS of programs on this site that would be great for a beginner. Look in the BB section at the “Best of T Nation” thread. There are tons of good articles listed in there, including, Do this Program instead of that Dumb One (or something to that effect)[/quote]
I have seen the light…now how do i delete this thread of death? it will not let me do it
you cant delete it… just dont worry about it. Everyone makes posts that they regret.
As far as the “I dont want to get huge” thing… dont worry about that either. you arent going to hit a savage workout, pound down a shake, go to sleep and wake up the next day a 250lb ripped up beast lol.
Do you want to build muscle? (if the answer is yes) then you should probably do what the biggest/strongest guys are doing. Lift like a bodybuilder and when you get to the size that you want (185-190 ripped) then you just lift to maintain at that point. You just shift your focus from gaining size to fixing/tweaking areas that you want to improve.
but trust me… you wont just wake up one day Hyooooooooooooge lol[/quote]
I agree with greg. Don’t worry about it, you took the criticism well and everybody makes posts they tegret, especially as a noob. I did for sure. Also, he’s telling you the truth–looking 190 ripped isn’t easy. Dedicate yourself like a bodybuilder and lift and EAT like you mean to be the next ronnie coleman until you get to the size you want to be at…THEN focus on maintaining or cutting bodyfat. I will guarandamntee you it is not as easy or as quick a fix as you think it will be to get there.
Look at it this way–you can either take forever and ever and ever to get your goal because you are halfassing it, or you can mentally train yourself to have the perspective of being the next big bodybuilder…eat and train like that’s your goal…and then get to you “fitness model” goal faster and then maintain with satisfaction. I’d rather pick option 2 any day of the week.
