Even if you never set foot in a gym your whole life, you owe it to yourself to read "The 80/20 Rule of Lifting" -

The value of the 80/20 rule is that it reminds you to focus on the 20% that matters. You should identify and focus on these things. So in bodybuilding, what are they? I would say that the 20% that matters includes:

Which basically means: Train. Eat. Rest. Repeat. Week in and week out. Focusing on the basics will give you 80% of your results.

So if that's the important 20%, what's the 80% that's trivial? Well in my opinion it's details like these:

Etc. Etc. Etc. Honestly, that stuff doesn't make a difference. Or rather, if it does it makes a relatively small difference (20%); or only makes a difference for a relatively small few who are at the limits of their physical development. For most of us average Joes, it just doesn't matter!

My New Workout: Day 3

On Runner's Ravings

As someone who used to scour the Internet for fitness advice, I know that there are innumerable online resources out there for people looking to lose some weight, gain some muscle, and get six pack abs. One particularly good one is James Fell's SixPackAbs, which I recommend reading.

I don’t want people to waste their money on nonsense, and so I want to offer as frequently as possible my own insight into fitness forays. Below is my own workout, and it is far from perfect.

A few points for clarity:
