Yes, when I first started on GB. Somehow GB mess up my sign on name, so I added 101.

I know some, but not near everything about this or that with regards to resistance training. Can't say I'm any expert, don't think GB has room for any more "experts" anyway.

Had the advantage of being exposed to lifting from my two uncles who hung around the original Muscle Beach and other old school gyms.  And talking to older BB'ing, PL'ing and a few Olympic lifting veterans on a one to-one-bases ( I ask a lot of questions).  Just to note, Olympic lifters are the real strongmen and prime athlete's of all.  

One thing I have learned about BB'ing is to keep the workouts brief and to the point, with three workouts, four the max, per week. Pretty simple blueprint because most guys overthink what is really needed for continual advancements.  And having each workout done with serious intend, halting one or two final reps from the point of failure most of the time.

Good Luck.

I agree. Olympic lifters are the real athletes.  Olympic lifting should be called power lifting and power lifting should be called strength lifting.

Are you the same member that used to post as just JPM?

You are highly knowledgeable.


JPM is too humble.
He has forgotten more about lifting and nutrition than many serious practitioners ever learn.

If it wasn't for members like "pumpster," he may have shared even more of his knowledge early on.

"Experts" like Squadfather and pumpster would troll JPM, claiming he's a fraud and calling bullshit on lifting claims, etc. I remember a thread in which JPM had to post photographic evidence of v-shaped dipping bars because "dumpster" insisted it was a fictitious apparatus JPM conjured up. A short time after that thread, plumpster was touting the benefits of the v-bar for chest and tri's by using different grips - carrying on as if he'd invented the goddam thing!

Montague, thanks for the thumbs ups.....and right back at you.

Didn't mine pumpster or Squadfather, there would self destruct soon or later. The more they wrote the more they exposed themselves as attention seeking frauds.  Squadfather could be funny at times and did have a small following but pumpster was generally disliked. The reflected image of Squadfather's picture in the glass sliding door was probably the final straw for him.  

Donny was another gentleman who seemed to live his  fantasies through GB. Top martial artist, boxer, of course training expert and a macho and military record to rival Rambo. Donny got along with me quite well when he first came on GB. Exchanging ideas and such in a friendly way. Than, almost overnight, he became the opposite. I remember he deleted quite a few of his past post when he was on a more friendly bases with me. And a lot of his own post that exposed some of his falsehoods. Not sure how Donny got banded from GB, but he did. Though he did get way too personal with some other guys. I generally like most everyone but with Donny and pumpster, I might make an exception. Sitting around a table with a few beers under out belts, I'm sure we would have come to better terms.

I made the big mistake of listing the weights I used in my workouts when first coming on GB.  I didn't/don't think there was anything extra extraordinary about them. Considering the men I have trained with in the past and people I have heard about in lifting circles. In some semi-private or small club gyms, there are exceptional strong men lifting ungodly amounts of weight. And not a chrome BB, DB, plate or machine anywhere in sight. A whole sub culture by it's s







Good Luck

LOL... I'd forgotten about Donny..
I took some time away from the board recently - a combination of having become indifferent to the common, widespread idiocy here, as well as working lots of OT while being back in the gym full-time again.

You can't "fix stupid."
But, the stupid quickly expose themselves, eventually self-imploding.

The only exception to that phenomenon is "THE EXCEPTIONALLY STUPID." These are the people who are TOO STUPID to recognize insult and/or feel shame.
To see my point, just scan through the Politics board sometime.  Wink

Got it.

I'm just returning a bit more to GB these last few months.

The G&O section, a complete waste of time, for me anyway. A few lonely people who seek belonging, or to fit in, somewhere and almost begging to be noticed and heard. A virtual reality meeting place for them, which real day to day life situations may not offer them.  Either introverted or critically unsure of themselves. Of course the majority are average guy's trying for a bit of information or are just bored. And probably don't take the BS too seriously.

Not so much stupid, but perhaps lacking the confidence and resolve to think for themselves and do a bit of research on BB'ing, lifting or whatever in the training world. Through there seems a few low IQ individual who may falsely believe their smarter than most.  They are the ones most easily played on GB. I thought Squadfather was cleaver by half, but pumpster and Donny may have been lacking  full mental quality's (OK a bit dense).  If your going to lie and BS everyone, might try being at least half way good at it. In the final run, your only fooling yourself anyway.

Good Luck
