Well I read this part of your post. Could you tell me why it is so silly?
Certainly. I will address the issues in point form.
1. The article is literally RIDDLED with spelling and grammatical mistakes. Now anyone can make a few mistakes, (heck I'm not perfect either) but this article looks like it was written by a grade nine student who read a few too many Flex magazines and not enough English books. In and of itself, this does not have a bearing on the author's training knowledge, but I counted 9 mistakes in one paragraph alone! If you are trying to present your ideas, it is a good idea to employ Spell Checker at the very least. It certainly should raise a red light at the least to see a article as badly written as this one.
2. "I truly believe I could take anybody reading this and turn them into a 4.0lbs per inch bodybuilder." First of all even men like Ronnie Coleman, and Yates are not 4.0lbs per inch bodybuilders ( at least in contest shape. ) Off-season yes, but do you really believe this guy's training could make "anybody" (his words) look like Coleman, Ruhl and Yates? Come on! Words like everyone and anybody should raise another red light...and cast serious doubt on the author's training qualifications.
3. "Every bodybuilder I have trained has gained at least 47 lbs." Well I have gained about 60 lbs (naturally) during the time that I have been training. Does that qualify me to give advice? If not, what about him? If we are using weight gain as one of the criteria, then certainly I am more qualified.
4. "I have trained 7 people bodybuilding wise in the last 4 years" Doesn't sound so great to me. That's less than TWO clients a YEAR! If he is so good, why are people not beating a path to his door? I've never heard of him and neither have many others on this board. Also nearly all this people he trained were on "juice". This alone makes his advice worthless for most of the people on this board.
5. "If you train a bodypart once a month you will not overtrain but you will be growing only 12 times a year...
Wrong. You will not grow if you train once a month. You will regress. Try it and see.
6. "Incredible strength GAINS will equal incredible size GAINS." No this is wrong again. You can get a lot stronger without getting a lot bigger. He has got it the wrong way around.
7. "I believe Ronnie Coleman was clean or close to it when he was powerlifting and when he was an amateur bodybuilder"
Say what? First of all, either one is clean or not. There is no "close to it." Secondly if someone is THAT deluded, do you really think he knows what he is talking about?
Feeling bored yet? I could go on and give many more examples...but I'm bored. Maybe if you're not convinced yet, I'll point out the rest in another post.
