I've wasted so much time thinking the way he describes in the article: worried about getting fat, thinking I can make serious gains with what I thought was "good nutrition" (but never enough calories), and thinking there's something wrong with me when I improve so little over so much time. I'm tired of it, and I don't care any more. I just want to get big and strong, and I'll do whatever it takes to get there.
I've made a lot of progress in the past 6 months by just getting in lots of volume and eating whatever felt right. I'm going to start a journal here, and I'll post all my workouts and my FitDay diet logs. As you'll see, I no longer pussyfoot around with calories (and my bf% hasn't even gone up much).
Just wanna thank miked96 for posting that article, man. I think about it every single day. I finally feel like I'm on the right track.
Welcome to MAB. Mike is a great and knowledgeable lifter, of which there are plenty of around here.
