Good find GB...

EDIT... I have now actually had the chance to read this properly... and I will edit to "Good find GB for finding something which would bring our cantankerous Craig back!"

Most of what he's wrote is absolute bollox, nicely written though.


Counter points

1. No need for a newb to eat every 2-3 hours
2. No need to "spread" the protein in small servings
3. I wouldn't recmend ratios with out seeing what someones like
4. That advice would make a skinny guy stay skinny
5. 45 min traing sessions = internet BS
6. he recomends a supplement company of poor delivery time and product control
7. And glutamine WTF?

Yeah, it's about 90% good advice, but the rest is bodybuilding myths. There're better beginners guides out there (eg. Rippetoe, stronglifts), as this one still encourages over-management.

Ah well, there are worse guides out there...

I have a mancrush on that guy. It's the Texan drawl. Mehdi does live closer though, I might have to settle for him.
