New to This Forum Not to BBing

Seems like an interesting site figured I would join up and see if I can be of use. Not a natural guy. Not here to argue. My knowledge is what I consider basic, but most would unduly call advanced.

I love coversing on the subject of bodybuilding, but cannot stand closed minded individuals that think the only way is their way. I have been in this long enough to know everyone is different and different methods work on an individual specific basis. I am glad to share my methods, but respect and understand a different opinion or approach.

I do not appreciate boards ran by a hierarchy that lash out at new or different ideas. The boards like that are common and quite frankly missing out on beautiful approaches because of their own close mindedness.

A physique that is exceptional is put together over a long period of self study and trying new things, until the individual learns what works best and fully gives there all. Too often I see guys get a formula that works and shun all others ideas. We NEVER stop learning. I am sure I will learn things here too.

Thanks Mighty Stu.
I have a pretty crazy routine and have advanced enough in the last year that I believe I have a worthwhile pursuit in achieving my goals. Currently 31yo 5’ 11" 222lbs @ 14% bodyfat. I took a long hiatus from lifting and cycling at too young of an age. I came back about one year and four months ago. I was about 165 or 170 (I knew what I was doing this time) when I started back at similar bodyfat. The 52-57 lbs I have put on has been rewarding.

My past use of AAS was poorly executed so I was able to learn many things the hard way. 2018 is bringing in a new cycle/lifting/diet plan for me. I have studied and implemented many routines, but am currently implementing Ronnie Rowlands Slingshot training system, as I have found his methods work well for me and my goals. Of course I will be tweaking it a little as I see fit but the general layout looks beautiful.

Glad to meet you!
I would be glad to learn anything about your programs and experiences as well.
