aight, then we agree much more then i understand from first post. Yea, if you mean people hitting the gym, many are so clueless.. i had older brother who knew all stuff, so was pretty easy for me to learn cause i could ask him a little, but learn the most alone. Even if someone tells you how to do a type of exercise doesn't mean you do it right, that was the best part that he knew how to lift the right way, so i learned it at the beginning, most important thing imo.(Nice you are not one of those order "freaks" if i go into a house of someone else friends or something, and i see big board with many notes, all different colors, have calendar planner so on so on, i understand at once that i'm opposite person from these people, i have everything in my memory don't need to write it down, and i also learn that if i want to do something with them in the future, ask them days maybe weeks before we set up a date. xP)
Yea understand, even if it's diet or workout, is good to have a good network that can help each other out, more you learn faster.
Like to learn from others also, but when i burn for something, the desire to learn about it comes in buckets for me, so i just need to find out cause i'm so curious. Last part so true, see two guys that lift bicep curls barbell next to each other... the guy that lift the most weight has so much smaller biceps and out of shape overall. (Was lucky to be around many big dudes when i started, they just said to me use light weights at start, learn right technique and isolate the muscle you are training, after this some months everything went rapid speed. So many that go to gym and only take the biggest weight they can find and don't train that body part they supposed to at all, better to look "strong".)
