    If you could go back to day one of bodybuilding/training and start over with the knowledge/experience you have today, what would you do differently and why?

    I find that if I had the ability to change anything.. I wouldn't. I don't have regrets but have made mistakes and have learned from them... I wouldn't be who I am today if I didn't make those mistakes. :)

    I would organize my workouts better, I wouldn't have left lagging bodyparts like upper/inner chest and rear delts and I would have my diet tuned 100%.

    1) Waaay back in the day, I wish I would've found an Oly or power lifter to show me how to squat / push / pull w /.the right form.

    2) Tell anyone who ask "Wouldn't you be more comfortable in the Women's section of the gym?" to go fuck themselves w/ a 45 plate sideways.

    3) Gotten a better handle on how diet & training work together to get results.

    4) Gotten more training in functional strength.

    O damn, that's easy.

    I would open a UG lab, make the best
    UG gear around, and make a shitload of money.

    I would have a UG lab around before anyone
    even knew what a UG lab for gear was.

    Of course, I would have to wait until the world wide web
    started, until I went viral..

    OK, I'm ready. Let's do this []==[]

    Well, I agree with this one ( I don't have regrets but have made mistakes and have learned from them)

    I don't think I ever made a mistake in my life..

    O wait, yes I did forget a coupon for
    strawberries one day I went to Wegmans
    and had to pay 50 cents more a batch.

    I could have kicked myself :mad:

    to realize bodybuilding is not weight lifting is not power lifting.
    someone once coined the phrase stimulate, dont annihilate.
    200+ lbs rows are impressive. but that same someone is said to have built olympian lats with less than 100. 70 is what i read once. mind muscle.
    and theres only one ron coleman.

    I would pay more attention to my diet definitely.In the first couple of years no matter how many times i've heard people telling me"you should eat better,if you really wanna improve"i just didn't give much credit.I think that was my biggest mistake.

    better diet in my early days, stretching and adequate warm ups. appropriate time off training and wouldnt do as many plift comps per year as i did.

    my first 5yrs of training life were pre internet, kids have no excuses these days!!;)

    If I did things differently, it might have brought me
    to a different place, and I might not have met my beautiful,
    incredible, awesome, sexy honey who I am with now
    SO, I would have done everything exactly the same.

    My arms are clearly getting bigger.
