All right, first off let me say that I DO consider myself a beginner. At 21, i have been lifting for about 4 years, but for the first 3, I would say I was like a virgin getting laid for the first time when it came to knowledge about training and nutrition. But for the last year i have been reading this site and learning as much as i can and have been loving my progres.
now for my rant…
i just came back to school from a study abroad program and got back in our gym for the first time since i left about 7 months ago. at 5’10" and only 160 and training along side the varsity football team… i felt like a fuckin runt.
but i was not intimidated, because most of these big guys looked like fuckin kooks! just throwin weight around with no form and for fuck sake… drinkin water not Surge (i was the only one drinkn it)! when i tried to tell this kid about the squat rack, he looked like a deer in head lights.
anyways, cheers to this site and all else on here passin on the high quality info. i am proud to say i am a beginner who reads this site than a freakin kook who thinks they are the shit for throwin the most weight around.
