I’ll be honest with you. When I first showed up here not that long ago I had similar goals to a lot of these guys even though I should’ve known better from past experience. I thought the Professor and a couple of other of you vets were just egotistical and obnoxious, raining ridicule on guys who weren’t as big or experienced as you were.
Aside from a very minor run in with Professor X I didn’t say much because I didn’t feel I was around long enough. As I listened to you guys though the old dusty lightbulb that I already had in the back in the mind turned on and in the span of about 15 minutes of thought I changed the way I was doing things in favor of the way that had worked for me before which was essentially what you guys were saying.
In a nutshell, getting big requires eating big, training big and forgetting about bodyfat for a while. Not getting fat, but just don’t frickin worry about it unless I really started to pile it on.
Having been here a little while now it’s starting to weary ME hearing some of these kids and I understand more now how the patience of the some the longtime memebers has long since departed. I’m older than all you guys (42) and I eat a hell of a lot of food and a hell of a lot of fat and I am not getting fat. I’m not ripped either, but my progress is better than I ever wouild’ve thought possible at my age.
To hear a 19 year old kid who’s 6,2/185 talk like he’s going to be obese next week if he eats a steak or some scrambled eggs is like fingernails on a chalkboard. How can you claim to want to train with weights and not want to get big at the very time in your life when it’s easiest to do? I’d kill to be able to go back and have that opportunity again.
None of you guys have ever said anything that I’ve read that should stop a serious guy from using what you say for their own good. My God, you’ve got a whole world’s worth of training advice at your fingertips with the click of a mouse.
It used to be you had to hire a trainer and hope for the best or maybe get some tips on the very off chance that there was anybody in your gym who both knew what they were doing and were willing to help you. Now it’s all in the other room on the computer and all you could ever dream of and they’re gonna argue.
