Default Wasted noob gains?

For my first whole year of training I ate nowhere near enough food and my training approach was terrible. I made pretty much no gains. Could I have wasted my noob gains?

Not sure what you're asking, Ben. You said, "I made pretty much no gains." And, then you ask, "[c]ould I have wasted my noob gains?" How can you waste something that was never there to begin with?

What I think you're saying is that you wasted a year of training. Not necessarily. At least you were doing something. Now, you have gained some knowledge and have a place to ask questions if you get stuck. Don't dwell on the past - focus on the future. Get in there and crush some weights!

Doesn't really matter. Lots of people do what you did. Just keep pressing forward. You're young and you already know more than lots of people 20 years older than you. Lots of gains to come in the future.

Yes what I was trying to ask was can you waste your opportunity for noob gains and not get them. I was under the impression that noob gains lasted for a certain period of time and if I didn't eat/train properly for that first year of training I wouldn't get my noob gains once I started to do things right. I've learned that is not the case now though.

Ben,

At 17 chances are you were overtraining and not eating enough. Go on a bulk and powerbuild routine. Your nob gainz are in front of you my friend.

You can't waste your newbie gains.

You have a certain amount of newbie muscle to build that will always be then until you've actually built that muscle.
Training efficiency won't make any difference.

All it means is that, as you've experienced, those gains will come through slower.
