Help for Newbies: Where to Start

Just a good deed for the day. The forum seems to be getting a lot of newbies lately, probably because T-mag’s popularity keeps growing and growing. So, to help newbies out, I think we should start a thread for them linking them to helpful T-mag articles.

Let’s go the extra step and actually provide a link, and not just the name of the article. I’ll start by suggesting the FAQ section: www.t-mag.com/articles/faq.html

Anyone else want to mention specific articles on diet, training, supplements or drugs?
