Hello Cly my name is Pete Hildebrand my login is Hercules (don't let the login name fool you).
I just started my body building journey this last week (seriously anyway), I've dabbled on and off, but never fully devoted my self to it till last week.
I have to agree with your statement that there is a ton of good advice here on this site and I too find it confusing! I guess it will take me a while to learn the lingo of body building.
Well good luck and wish me luck too please.
