Default PMing for Advice

Beginning lifters:

We want to help. The best way for you to receive help is to ask questions on the open forum. Have a thousand questions? No problem! Start 1000 threads. We're glad to have you here, and welcome ALL your questions.

I also want to ask that you do not PM advanced/seasoned lifters for advice without them asking you to do so. This places a burden on the lifter, and as one question often leads to 10, can place the lifter in an awkward position where they want to help but don't have time.

Understand that PMing for advice is like asking for free personal training. When you ask on the open forum, those that have time to respond, will. When you PM for advice, you are asking a lifter to make time for you. This can easily be abused.

Please honor the MAB code and keep training questions on the forum.

Understand that this is not a hard and fast rule. We understand that you will make friends at MAB, and they may welcome questions. We do not want to discourage conversations among friends.

The goal here is to prevent high exposure competitive powerlifters and bodybuilders from getting hammered with questions. Please respect their time, and keep conversations on the open forum. They will respond when, and if they can.

This also goes for Facebook and other social outlets. If you find an athlete via MAB, and then hook up on Facebook, please keep the same standards.

When you post questions on the forum, everyone wins. Ultimately the thread titles are picked up by Google, bring in more traffic, and working to build a healthy, growing community.

To the advanced lifters/sponsored athletes/etc. - if you feel like someone is being relentless in asking for advice via PM, please contact a moderator.
