first off: excuse my bad english. I will try to keep my questions as simple as possible, for you to understand. But anyway - besides that - the ANSWERS I would like to hear from you, should be as simple as possible, without getting too scientific. Furthermore I REALLY want to hear the opinions from heavy hitters, not some skinny "I_know_everything_from_reading_a_article"-guys.
By all means I don't want to disrespect those "skinny" guys who want to share their knowledge, but I'am REALLY interested in "what worked for the BIG ONES? / how did the BIG ONES managed it all?".
1 - Got all the "heavy hitters" seriously big, by over eating to a maximum, and training like a madman?
2# - Whenever you felt like your whole routine in the gym builds up (over time) to a point where it all became "too much to take seriously", what did you do? Just eat more and keep it up OR minimize the trainingroutine and back off from massive eating?
Keep the answers simple as much as you can.
Rest note: BY ANY MEANS: I do not want to disrespect anyone, my english is just bad and I cant write things down in a friendly manner, like I would want to. Please keep that in mind.
