    no. the point is that 99% of us just need to get out there and lift and that lots of newer lifters (and I'm not just talking a few months, more like a few years) see the top level lifters talk about the minutiae of their workouts and concern themselves with that same minutiae, when in fact, they aren't anywhere near strong/big enough to need too. They just need to get out and lift.

    The keyboard warriors who don't lift and bitch and moan on the internet wouldn't have lifted before the days of the internet either. It's just that there wouldn't be an audience to hear their continual whining.

    That video is retarded. If he had just said stop getting so caught up on specifics and focus on the biggest part (weights) then fine, but to say that it's better not to have a teacher is just dumb.

    You use the same attack every time dude. Just because someoen has experience doesn't mean we should take their word as gospel. A teacher will produce better/faster results than just going in the gym and trying to figure things out on your own. Try to think logically.

    :hsugh: How the fuck would you know how hard I work? Like I said, if he had said work hard lifting weights and don't concentrate so much on specifics the video would have some merit but he said a teacher is BAD.

    Hard work + teacher > hard work alone

    Stop. Just turn around and go away, you are out of your element and will proven be wrong.

    The internet is the teacher. Without it I wouldn't know how to dead, squat, etc. or that I should even do those exercises.

    so i guess nobody asked him if it was better to lift in morning or at evening after he said just fucking lift weights lmao

    most people (myself definately included) worry about too much stupid shit instead of just lifting weights

    You are a prime example of what he has said, a skinny fuck who is weak as piss, you gotta work hard and lift weights, fuck conjugated periodization, linear periodization, high intensity, or cardio timing. People need to squat about a million times, bench two million and pull half a million before they have any business getting into anything more complicated than bench squat and deadlift.

    Same goes for nutrition eat big to get big, don't have to eat like shit, and you don't have to eat like a fucking stereotypical bodybuilder.

    No whey!!!

    You mean I gotta lift weights to make progress????






    I'll be the first to admit that when I started, I read too much. I worried about what happens if my routine says i need 14 reps and I failed at 12? Did I screw up my training? What angle should my incline bench be at? Whats the best isolation movement for the quadrangular superspinatus? Really, the less I started thinking, the better progress I made. I go into the gym now with an idea of what movements I'm going to do (basically, the same as last week, unless progress has stalled). I have an idea what numbers I need to beat. And thats it. If I feel strong, maybe I'll go heavier. If I feel like theres no pump, I'll back off the weight and do more reps. Bottom line, get stronger first, nitpick shit later. Wish I would have listened to this at the start.

    Are you fucking brain dead? Did you walk into a gym and pick out those 3 exercises to do your first day? You learned that shit. It seems basic now but you didn't even know that when you first started. Anyone can spend 12 years in a gym and I'm sure they would figure it out eventually but what's wrong with having a teacher so you can do it right from the start?
