My 10,000th Post!


#1

Wow,.. I realized a couple of weeks ago that I was closing in on this and was wondering what reply would actually be the big one. So, instead of just replying to someone else's thread, I figured I'd make my own for the occasion, and pat myself on the back for a job well done -lol.

Been on here since about '99/'00 (even though the reset was in '02), and while I know there are plenty of posters with much higher #s than me, and in less time, I'd like to think I've been more about quality than quantity in terms of my contributions over the years.

So uh,.. woo-hoo, yay me!

Nothing a cheeseburger can’t fix!

Stu, you’re still just a noob beginner. Please stop talking until your post count is bigger…

Lol,

Thanks for all you’ve contributed. You’re a true gentleman and an asset to the forums!

This thread just made me realize that I’ve been on this forum for a decade this February.

Oh man do I feel fucking old.

The real question is what will be the post that destroys that beautiful round number.

-Chasing #'s at the expense of actually stimulating growth is not the end all be all of hypertrophy training. “Progressive Resistence Training” is only one part of the puzzle. Learning to understand the concept of muscles “doing work” is paramount to reaching beyond beginner/intermediate levels.

-Most people overcomplicate their programs. Yes, the best approach is usually the one you haven’t tried yet, BUT, as long as you’re stimulating the recovery/growth process, there’s no need to overcomplicate just one variable in the quest for more muscle.

-If you don’t have any clue what’s going in to your body on most days, then you can’t address shortcomings and why you’re not progressing. It’s not rocket science, but for the average gym rat, learning and actually understanding the basics of nutrition can make a huge difference between you and most gym rats (let alone most people!)
Making yourself sit down, and seriously (I mean SERIOUSLY) track things for a couple of weeks, will open your eyes to just how off base most people are with their dietary habits in terms of supporting their goals. It will also make eyeballing serving sizes a hell of a lot easier, and less of the chore some people make it out to be.

-The human body is a hormone-based machine, and different foods can have different effects on what’s going on at certain times. While there’s no need to go grab a degree in Biochemistry, understanding the few basic substances that can come into play when discussing physique augmentation will make you realize that there’s a heck of a lot more to gaining weight (muscle) and losing weight (fat) then a simple positive or negative caloric equation.

-There are many different writers who craft amazing stories with Batman. Some play him up as a Detective. Some play up the 200+ lb world class ass kicker. Some play him up as the gadget reliant ultimate tactician. All variations are Batman, and no matter the angle he utilizes in any particular story, he will always find a way to solve any situation. Never doubt that.

-Having the foresight to always ensure there is extra toilet paper stashed in every bathroom in your house may seem a bit obsessive, but it will avoid potentially embrrassesing and completely unneccessary social situations.
