It a forum post, not an article (took a minute or two to find it):
[i] Have spend a while thinking about this. I suppose most of these could apply to someone you have coached and how you would do it differently as well as to your own training... anyway here is my top 10 list, be anxious to hear what others think.
1.) I would spend more time training only 3 days a week before adding more days.
2.) I would worry MORE about learning to go under the bar and LESS about lifting it up.
3.) I would do more overhead squats.
4.) I would be a little more patient about pushing the weights up.
5.) I would get more and/or better coaching right from the start, even if I had to spend money or travel. Its cheaper in the long run.
6.) I wouldn't push through the injuries and aches and pains quite as hard. Took me a long time to realize this this doesnt often turn out well.
7.) I would buy decent equipment a lot sooner. Yes long before I sold equipment, I wasted money on "bargain" stuff.
8.) Given a second chance, I wouldnt go through that one year where I wasted a bunch of money on supplements I'd be embarrassed to name now.
Well thats only 8 and I said top 10, but thats all I can think of right now. Anyone else want to add the last two? [/i]
