Often on this board, some guy will ask one of those “What supplement will get my Hyooge?” questions, at which point they will get the “obligatory” flame. In retaliation for a bruised ego and wounded pride, many will begin to tell you how old they are, the old time bodybuilders they know, their certifications, their years in the gym, or their knowledge of nutrition and workouts, blah, blah blah…
My contention is that a “newbie” is not a person of a certain age or even experience…it’s more a person of a certain level of knowledge. In reality, we all are “newbies” to a certain degree; I certainly am still learning a lot.
But there appears to be a certain knowledge “base” or “fundamental knowledge”, if you may, that one needs in any field or endeavor. It is that basic knowledge (or lack thereof) that probably makes one a “newbie”…not their age or years in the gym.
