Suggestion for Beginners Looking for BB Advice


#1

I suggest that those relatively new to lifting - particularly those who lift primarily for aesthetic reasons or at least have the goal of their body looking a certain way - post, along with their stats, a picture of a physique similar to what they want to achieve.

I say this because, as a beginner, that's the best way to illustrate what your goals are. For instance, if you say, "hey I'm 22, 6'1" and 165lbs, and I've always wanted to weigh 200lbs," that's all well and good, however as a beginner you don't really know what you would look like at 200lbs.

Of course, if you want to be really helpful, you'll post a pic what what you look like now side by side with your goal, since, for instance, 6'1" 165lbs can look all kinds of ways depending on body comp.

I know this would help me when when trying to give advice to newer lifters.
