I mean seriously.... I'm fucking stupid. I'm lucky if I can spell my own name right. But when I got interested in lifting I read some books and did some research and it's turned into an on going process. It doesn't have to be a passion, but at least know what the fuck you're doing. There's always been poeple in the gym who don't know what they're doing but it seems like the last month or so there's been 11ty more. a major rule for newbs to follow... 1. If you dont' know what muscle group a certain exercise is working......... you're doing it wrong. 2. if you can't list the major muscle groups (not even specific like "deltoids"), just shoulders, bi's, tri's, chest, quads, hams, calfs, back.... what the fuck ever, you should at least learn that. You don't have to be pre-med to know the basics. 3. Training arms every day will not get rid of your beach ball sized gut. 4. If you're not breaking a sweat or straining, you're not accomplishing shit. there's some guys in there now that train arms every single day. Never seen them do anythign else until the last 2 weeks, and I've now noticed a trend. They day after I do certain exercises they've started doing them. it's like they pic a new exercise out of my routine to try and do it. and the next mother fucker that says the word "tone" is gunna get some broken ribs and I'm going to spit tobacco in your eye. /rant. actually no, I'lll think of more in a minute.
