I haven't had time to write any useful content recently, but I did have time to read some. I wanted to post this article link to ensure I didn't lose it.

A Cold Slap In the Newbie Face: Recover More Grow More by Mark Rippetoe

It's exactly what it is billed to be - a hard no-nonsense, deliberately vulgar and direct message to young trainees. Basically, no one cares about your abs when you're skinny, they care about them when you have actual size and strength and muscle. You need to forget about being "lean" and worry about getting big and strong first. It's not about being a pro bodybuilder, it's about getting big and strong when it's the easiest for you to do so, and then working on the details.

It's one of those things you wish you had someone tell you when you were younger, but recognize that you might have argued back instead of just shutting up and listening.
