    Single Most Valuable Piece of Training Advice Is...?

    If a beginner came to you in the gym, and asked what is the most single valuable piece of training advice you could give, what would it be? Since I have trained since 1972, I can think of a ton of advice but to answer my own question, it would be this: Be patient. Do not give up and believe that as long as your diet is designed to accomplish your goals, and you train regularly, you will see results.

    Over the years, I see so many people join a gym and after two to three months, they quit for a variety of reasons. I think the overriding issue is they do not understand how long this takes and how patient you must be. Comments?

    Well,for most people.The one's that are just beginning.Get a good program and stick to it.You miss a couple days one week,one the next,a couple the week after? That dosnt equal great results.Even 3 month's of hard work really isnt gonna get where you wanna be.Think of in years.Thats discouraging for alot of people.In todays quick fix society,thats not popular.60 days to a new ripped you,and all that bullshit.Its a lifestyle.

    Consistency.

    Hit or miss at anything will kill gains.
    Be consistent with proper diet, training, sleep, & hydration.
    Being consistent is like thinking like an ant. One grain of sand at a time and soon you've built a castle.

    Single Most Valuable Piece of Training Advice Is...?

    Proper training and nutrition. I have seen too many guys over the years ask gear advice, only to have shitty training templates and crap nutrition. I have a kid at my work that wants to get bigger. He tells me he eats a ton and his training is on point. He eats cheezits all day and salads and he doesn't do squats or deads. "17 sets for arms" is what he says. Lol. I told him eat a pot roast everyday and a gallon of whole milk. Lift three times a week and keep you sets low and intesity high. Use starting strength, I said. No dice, he thinks he knows what he is doing and he is too arrogant to listen.

    Work an lift with moderate weight until you get the feel for the lift.
    I did cable crossovers for years cause I saw other guys do it. Skinny guys with 90 pounds shaking and struggling, leaning at a forty five degree angle using body English to move it. I followed there lead for years. I finally just stopped doing them. I came back around and used really light weight felt the contraction for the first time. Now I can't do them wrong and I could care less what weight I use.

    really would you rather bench 500 pounds or look like you could bench 500 pounds?

    Train with correct form, and be careful about overtraining. It's a marathon not a sprint.

    "Train less"

    Overtraining is a bitch and can really mess you up. Beginners rarely ever know anything about it.
    To speak before you think is like wiping your ass before you shit!
