    Default What would you do differently?

    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?

    Build up volume slowly. In all of my used routines, I always end up cutting back because it ended up being too much.

    I'm sure "using perfect form" will be another major one, but my top 1 is increasing slowly.

    If I were to go back to day 1 it is difficult to say what I would do differently. 38 years ago I did not have internet access. I do things differently now because I have places like DD forum to get valuable advise from those with experience. The internet is the golden key. And DD is one of the few gold nuggets in it. But if I could go back in time and retain the strength knowledge that I know now - I suppose I would not take advise from people just off the street. Most guys back "in the olden days" got their advise from comic book ads like Charles Atlas etc...Or just did "weight liftin". Without a computer or internet, a strength coach/mentor - would be the way to do it. I guess..Dennis

    I'd follow a PTTP style format for a long time, see how far I could go with it.

    Instead, I wasted a lot of time with failure-type programs.

    At least I found ETK eventually.

    My husband would go back in time and slow down so he wouldn't have hurt himself.

    I'd go back in time and clean up my diet on day one. . . If I could go back further I wouldn't have gotten lazy and fat to begin with.

    Why not do those things now? Wipe the slate clean.

    I certainly am - now - and since I cleaned up my diet and rid myself of bad cooking habits a few months ago I've lost 5% bodyfat and definition is starting to show.

    if I hadn't made the mistakes back then I wouldn't have learned from them...and therefore would not have done anything differently

    If I could go back... I'd do everything with fanatical attention to form and especially good shoulder mechanics. Suck those shoulders in. Ears are shoulder poison. Sloppy form is an injury waiting to happen.

    That and gotten much deeper into things that I like way earlier like martial arts.

    As other folks have mentioned, there is no time like NOW to make changes!

    Exactly.

    I believe experiencing failure or setbacks makes us ready to truly learn.
    If I had the knowledge/experience I have now, I wouldn't have earned it or appreciated it so I probably wouldn't have followed it anyway. It's about the experience, the journey, not the destination. The opportunity to make mistakes, fail, learn, regroup then eventually overcome.
