New to Bodybuilding? Welcome!

It was great to see new faces at the gym today. I hope they become regulars. New lifters are always welcome. But most of the faces I see week in and week out I've seen many dozens of times before. The reality is that becoming a "bodybuilder" isn't all that hard. The only truly challenging part is that beginning phase where you are just developing the habits of proper training. Once you can learn to enjoy the muscle building process, you'll start settling into a routine with it. This month I will begin my third year of regular, consistent weight training. It's not perfect, but it's fairly smooth sailing. I genuinely look forward to each session at the gym. Learning the ropes is where you'll struggle the most. 

So the main point here is: once you've put in the initial effort to become a regular at the gym, you will find that bodybuilding is really not that big of deal after all.
