Yup. I read it. Gave it 1 star out of charity. Didn't even mention once how you don't need any technology at all in your life as long as you're in ketosis. What a waste.

New chapter in Me: " how's your weight?" ZF: "down 4 lbs this week". Me: What? How? ZF: Stopped eating ice cream at 12 when I woke up crying. Me: Oh.....Well....hmmm.... you're making progress, that's what I'm hearing. Great job.

You've obviously read the critically acclaimed .... It's a fascinating read, I couldn't put it down... 😉

My sincere apologies if you genuinely meant 95% of people and not sport scientists, and I misinterpreted. I hate these scientists as much as anyone; a major reason why I created my current position.

That's completely disingenuous and you're moving the goal post. Who would disagree that 95% of people don't know how to train? If that's what you "meant to say", fine. No problem. But that's not what you wrote.

Then why include #2 ? I'd never blast practitioners like this. Ever. Few scientists would. You obviously wanted to take a shot at us. How else could this be interpreted? It was clearly false, unnecessary, and undercut the value of #1 & #3. We should be supporting each other.

Exactly. Just that "minor" point.... which was in fact, the foundation and central point of the post. It's nonsense. Who disagrees with the 1st and 3rd point? Almost nobody.

Of course not. You know both of those points are 10000000% true. And you know 99% of scientists would agree. It's fairly obvious which part I'm referring to.

Well I definitely don't recommend that!

What a ridiculous and clearly uninformed statement. There's obviously a large mix of both in the field. Many are so pathetic I think they should leave the field, but that's not remotely close to 95%.

This is laughably wrong. In fact, it's basically the exact opposite. A huge % of sport performance/nutrition research only exists because the scientists have extensive experience w/ actual athletes. Even back in the 70's many of the scientists were their own participants.

Come get your GAINZ on with us at the . Click the link below if interested. No REMOTE participants, must be able to train at my lab 4x/week for 8 weeks. RTs always appreciated.

I don't see why you wouldn't do a bit of both. That makes the most sense in terms of sustainability and variation of adaptation.

This could be seriously legit. We are living in a fascinating time. Science is moving so fast it's absurd.

Participants were "active", but had not strength-trained formally in >1 year. i.e. Neither came in with squatting history, thus, both were equally novel to each group. Novelty doesn't explain the group differences.

Full or half squats? New study reports training 2x/wk for 10 wk = ⬆️Full squat 1RM 32±15% vs 11±9% (specificity ftw) ⬆️Quad volume (MRI) by ~5% in both ⬆️Glute & adductor volume by ~6-7% vs. ~2% ↔️ Hammy size Conclusion: full depth was generally better

See the post I made yesterday about randomization vs. variation.
