What's your bodybuilding advice?
Thought this would be a good thread for newbs and vets. I don't claim to be an expert or anything like that, but there's a few general rules you should follow if you want to get big.
1) Diet is key! I see too many guys that do not grow at all. They come to the gym, lift for an hour or so and repeat. You would think they would grow in a year or so even with the shittiest training but they still stay the same. I'll give them the fact that they are persistant.
2) Leave your ego at the door. This is mostly geared toward the newbies who like to pile the plates on the bench and get their spotter to do most of the work. While the buddy screams 'it is all you', lol. You also see the big fat 'powerlifter' who thinks he's huge cheating on every set and screaming like a walrus during mating season to attract attention to themselves.
3) Train legs, yeah you can get jacked without training legs, but it just looks too funny having chicken legs.
That's all I can think of for now, feel free to add some more.

Do lots and lots and lots and lots of Drugs.This way you can just walk in the gym,look at the wieghts and you'll grow.No need to lift and get all sweaty so Talon will get pissed at you.This type of training takes about 5 mins a day,gives you plenty of time to rest,eat and be a post whore

It's all about diet. I didn't grow until i started eating. Makes sense. I'd say it's around 60-70% of proper training.

You gotta work like a horse, eat like a pig, and sleep like a dog to get big as an ox . . .

Never sit still...always have goals, always strive to learn more about the body, how it works, how to maximize efficiency, how to grow, how to cut...research and put into good use the things you've learned. Despite being stereotyped as a "musclehead" sport that requires no thinking, the most succesful people are the smartest ones who've dedicated themselves to learning about the science of this stuff...
or to keep it more simple: train hard, eat harder. train smart with maximum intensity.

Do something fun other than bodybuilding....so many people burn out by training because it is demanding and it takes dedication but once in awhile treat yourself to some enjoyment. Example- Levrone started playing music so he had something to keep him fresh.
