If there was any advice you would give someone younger about bodybuilding or just life in general.. what would it be?
Never, Never, under any circumstances whatsoever get married. BJ's are out the window and even missionary position is few and far between. Stay single and hire out a a surrogate to bear your children.
great advice LOL sad but true
Alot of BB due to stress of todays life and the stress of working out are ending up with hormones issues. Back in the day when we came off cycles we did not have to deal with half the crap that people have to deal with today so we recovered quicker. For christ sakes doing a simple Prohormone cycle guys are crashing from because of the stress and demand that are put on people today.
Use common sense and if it seemd to go to be true then its not.
As for women well they are the root of all evil and to prove it how many countries have gone to war in history because of them..

Avoid drugs they simply are not necessary. Patience and knowledge .... it takes a) to get b). Learn about your body, how it reacts to different stimuli.. become an expert on you.
Women... don't get too caught up in appearance.. look for a good heart in a body you can live with...
Do not go gentle into that good night...Rage! Rage! against the dying of the light!!
on the issue of marriage, or monogomy etc. - true or false, it is fair that if you aren't getting it at all at home you have the green light to get it somewhere else? Note, i said this to my wife long before we got married and she said she agreed 110%.... so i married her.
and i tell you something else - if i dont feel like im at my best, like if i feel out of shape or not bringing my A-game - then i'm totally disinterested. So if a guy's not getting any it isn't necessarily his fault. But at the same time, if it is his fault - if he's not doing it for his girl - then she's got the right to go elsewhere to get what she needs IMO. Like i said, if you arent getting it at home, you should be able to get it somewhere else.
Dont do steroids, not worth it.
In terms of advice to young bodybuilders I would say you must be patient and consistent it takes time and dedication.
Good advice for bb.
Actually it's my kids who put a time limit on my computer time " Daddy I need the computer"
for a young bb. be your own doctor, know what works for you and why. Do not try tolift more weight ( one rep bench of 375lbs) 3 -4 reps of 65lb dumbells for curls to impress anyone..YOU WILL HURT YOURSELF!! if not now, it'll bite ya in the a$$ in your 30's. (elbow pain..lower back pain..wrist pain)
Steroids do not mix with wife and kids. Too much agression and too much time staking and timing..ect
NEVER..NEVER..EVER..lay a hand on your wife or any female, no matter how bad they pi$$ you off. Punch a hole in the wall before her. Pu$$y-a$$ cowards hit women. IMO any girl/woman who is assulted has the right to pump lead in the dude's A$$.
Always make time for your children. It goes FAAAAST! seems like yesterday i was rockin my newborn girl to sleep..now she's 6 goin on 15. In the past year she went from being a little girl asking "why"? "how come"? to saying i want an i-pod at the mall because so and so has one. now the word "stupid and shut up " comes out of her mouth. It ends right there. I let her know i'm always there and will do ANYTHING for her..but rude dispalys of manners will not be tolerated.
Start planning for retirement NOW. i dont care if your 18 or 22. The future isnt to promising (Soc.sec) I started at 23y/o and now at 35y/o i have..$$$$ alot. Always better yourself...take pt classes or a trade in addition to your job..ya never know!! I have a "blue coller" job in a mill (descent $$) just got an assoc. degree in bus management and also a CDL....I WILL ALWAYS HAVE A JOB at least i hope..lol
good luck in your future endeveurs!!
Please give yourself plenty of time to develop. As a high school freshman I was 135 lbs and as a senior 165lbs and now over 200 lbs. Size and strength will come with time. Follow a program with proper progression. Don't just jump into heavy lifting. Start with the basic and build proper form. If you play a sport work on your speed and agility. If your interested in starting a resistance training program there are plenty of options here
My wife is a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry and was just asked (after the wedding photos came out) to model evening gowns and wedding dresses. So, needless to say, she is no push-over. She is quite strong willed and I value having a partner who is so strong.
