On average, how long would you have to lift to not be considered a newbie>
This depends on how much time u out into it in my opinion. Newbie gains can last between 1-4 months maybe longer im sure its different for everybody however depending on wether ure interested and put any effort into what ure doing and learning more u could be classed as a newbie forever lol

It depends on how you train and recover, but I'd say (with absolutely no scientific basis) the honeymoon period is a year or so.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

First 20 lbs or so. Afterwards it becomes a struggle to gain.
Approximately 86 days, 11 hours, 27 minutes from the moment you lift your first weight.
Give or take a minute.
I agree, its been nearly a year for me, and I learn new things ALL THE TIME.Originally Posted by seK
