Way to Help MAB Grow #6:

Let it out!

If you have a question or interesting idea about training, start a new thread! Many great questions can get lost in training logs.

It's certainly ok to post questions in training logs, but more people can and will help if you start a new thread.

Regarding questions...No question is an old question! Who cares if a question has been asked 22 times before, ask it again. Please.

Way to Help MAB Grow #7:

Don't leave.

Over the years a lot of popular community members have left because they no longer are "hardcore enough" (training as much), or they have incurred an injury, or for many other reasons.

Remember, MAB is a community. Many people here miss you when you're gone. If time is short, we understand. But please don't leave because you aren't trying to crush PRs and break squat records every week.

One of the keys to helping MAB grow is welcoming lurkers. And we have an amazing amount of lurkers. People come here for information they don't find elsewhere.

You came here for that same reason. Even if you don't currently care about destroying PRs, you don't have to leave. Your wisdom and insights are missed.

It's ok to be a recreational lifter on MAB.

Way to Help MAB Grow #8:

It's ok to debate

It's ok to disagree. Debate topics.

MAB has always been a home for respectful debate. MAB does NOT look to push a certain dogma, and welcomes ALL topics, concepts and ideas. Don't shy away from posting your thoughts just because you feel like someone will disagree.

We are ALL learning.

Don't censor yourself. Speak up. MAB is a forum of respect and you will not be attacked because you disagree with someone else.

And do us all a big favor...if you do have a heated debate with someone, don't leave the forum because of it. This has happened several times over the years. We all get our feathers ruffled from time to time.

If you happen to run your mouth and tick someone off, apologize. Lifting isn't life or death. People are more important than ideas.

Invite the big guns.

If you see a big name lifter logging on another forum, invite them to cross-post their log on MAB.

Stop being a "little guy."

Some of you post like fiends on other sites but stay quiet over here.

MAB has a lot of experienced lifters on the site. So what. Speak up. No one here will make fun of you for starting threads, asking questions, or for just having fun.

Us old geezers like to have fun too.

Stop acting meek. It's ok to speak.

Quit calling me a "little guy" or I'm going to drive to Wisconsin and kick your arse.


I feel less meek and much better now.

Way to Help MAB Grow #12:

Understand what MAB "is."

MAB is not just a powerlifting/strength training or classic lifting site. MAB is also a site for bodybuilding, recreational lifting, general fitness and conditioning, kettlebells, etc.

Sometimes bodybuilders come here and misunderstand the advice given. MAB is not anti-bodybuilding, anti-split, or anti-anything else.

MAB DOES aim to provide beginners with reasonable starter workouts, but I do not want bodybuilders or recreational lifters to misunderstand this advice and interpret it as meaning splits are useless, or anything else along these lines. This is nonsense.

MAB respects all goals and lifters. We understand that not everyone trains to become a competitive powerlifter or bodybuilder. We also respect intermediate and advanced lifters - if you know how to build muscle or add strength, no one here is going to tell you how to train unless you ask for advice on refining your program.

With that said, if you don't know how to build muscle and strength, you are going to be taught the fundamentals.

We need more experienced bodybuilders at MAB. Ne need their dieting experience, and we need to be able to learn from one another so that we learn as men and can all better equip younger trainees.

You squat twice your body weight. Stop making us fat guys look foolish.
