Default Paul Carter's "40 lessons learned"

http://www.lift-run-bang.com/2015/01...s-learned.html


There'a still a lot for me to learn, that's for sure, and I just turned 40 as well, so I thought this was particularly timely and appropriate. Hopefully at least some of it will be relevant to some of you guys too.

Great post Dray. That was a good read. #32 & #38 really hit home for me.

I like this:

Quote:
Mobility has become a very overrated aspect of training. If you need 30 minutes of foam rolling and mobility work before you can even warm up on squats, it's time to quit.
and

Quote:
Just because someone is jacked and/or strong doesn't mean they have a clue about training or nutrition. Yet I see so many guys now that think because a guy can lift X amount of weight, or has 22" arms, that he has to have the keys to the kingdom. It's just not true.
and this is interesting:

Quote:
Training heavy is overrated for strength. This doesn't mean training heavy doesn't get you strong, or has no place. It doesn't mean that at all. It just means you don't have to train heavy all the time to get stronger. In fact, if you get an average of the intensities used in the most prominent of strength systems, it's between 68 and 72%. Yes, you can get really strong using intensities that low for the majority of your training, and not feel beat to shit all the time.

Almost 40 too and a lot to learn...

16.The internet is both a blessing, and a curse. There is so much good information out there to help someone get better, but there is also so many dumbasses dishing out shit that it can get difficult to navigate through at times. I feel bad for a lot of noobs that already have a problem overthinking shit. Maybe they would be best served getting off the net, and spending more time in the gym?
Quote:
26.Success leaves clues, but so does failure. Generally, arriving at a successful destination means "fail - fail - fail - fail -----SUCCESS". If we are lucky enough to find success early, that's great. But failing will also build a lot of knowledge if you understand the reasons something failed.
