If you could go back to day one of bodybuilding/training and start over with the knowledge/experience you have today, what would you do differently and why?

I would have trained to be an athlete with the help of weights, as opposed to a bodybuilder. I would also have varied my exercises more to avoid injury for each bodypart.

I find that if I had the ability to change anything.. I wouldn't. I don't have regrets but have made mistakes and have learned from them.. I wouldn't be who I am today if I didn't make those mistakes.

I would have trained more for "feel" rather than going so heavy as I did when I was younger.

Got stronger,but not much development.

I would have started steroids sooner. I knew I was gonna do them eventually but fear of hair loss kept me from doing so. I was always consistent with training and diet but it was hard to stay motivated when you're no longer seeing results. It was all about getting fatter or leaning out after nearly 10 years of training naturally.

not consume protein supplements.

everything is a learning process, I made huge gains in my first year of working out so I wouldn't take that back. I'd scale back time spent in the gym though.

Oh, and I'd take back that deadlift workout I did following a soccer game when I tweaked my back  Cry Still suffering from that shit years later.
