I was wondering is there any line like in how much weight you can lift or something like that.
Alzo is the "lenght of service" important for going to "intermediate" state. I've been training for like Year or so ( hard for 8 months)and got great gains in strenght, muscle and mind. And people often ask me for tips on how to improve their workout and stuff, since no one managed to gain 38 lbs of mass (some fat) in 7 months.(lucky me)
I live in a small town and there are like 2 gym's in every street and a lot of people train and some of them serious, but none of them even herd of T-Nation, and the thing that it represents.
New ways of training, advices on nutrition, debunking myths, you know, everything. So basicly everybody use shity rutines, isolating excercises on mashines and old rutines like 8 for, mass, 12< for definition?(not everybody, but a great deal of people)
So when they see me doing weighted pull-ups and DL-s (beltless 2x bodyweight)that really scares people, deep squats weithout sraps or belt they get puzzeled.
