Alright, I guess I should start with some background. I am 35, been working out for aesthetics and strength since about 18. It took me YEARS to find out what works for me. Around 24 I finally made it out of college (women, competitive drinking, and 10 gram blunts of dank were my vices). Shortly after I enlisted in the reserves. Around 2008 I really got back into the gym as I knew I was going overseas. At the time I was under the impression that in order to get the largest ballistic vest and corresponding ballistic plates I had to be a certain weight. I started prohormone usage before then during and after deployment.
I work on the road so I have learned to get inventive with my workouts so I do not need a spot. In these past two years I have been lucky enough to finally get some what stationary and have had a corresponding improvement with the gym.
A couple months back a Army buddy had heard I was on the sauce (juice) but I wasn't I was just showing the dedication i had rediscovered with my current situation. Long story short I ended up getting a stack together.
I have read and read and read online resources trying to educate myself before I got my current cycle and have continued to read during this run.
My main question is really a plea for input.
1. What are the recommended reputable informational resources you gents find useful? This site so far has been my favorite but I read every forum I can find I and after a while it just seems like it's a toss up. One says left the other says right. I am looking for books and sites with PHDs behind them. Books and sites (like this one) with years of experience behind the postings.
- What subjects are not regularly covered in these forums that I need to read up on? I am talking about the things that you didn't even realize you needed to know until years in. Or some veteran pointed it out to you.
Again I know I am new to this and I have tried to educate myself but I am finding too much conflicting information online. Like I said this site seems to have less broscience with more information that appears to come from educated sources so I am asking for input on where and what I need to know.
I will start another thread about my current cycle and what I have available for future runs.
Thanks in advanced.
