[QUOTE=ironwill2008;1031269843]From Stoppani's BS, to gethin's 50-rep hypertrophy plans, to the "Shortcut" programs, and now this current mess, whenever the fallacies of these bogus programs are pointed out, someone invariably posts this same sentiment.
It's called common sense. Natties don't train on double-splits, or train to ridiculous numbers of reps, or expect some "shortcut" to mass/strength because none of it has proven to work in the past.
All you plitt nut-huggers should spend a few minutes looking through the 'workout journals' subforum on this site (where the rubber actually meets the road), look at how any of the long-term journalers who happen to have avatars/progress pics showing good development, and see how many of them are using any of those BS 'super site' programs.
I'm not disagreeing with anyone here...To each their own choice! Is this workout more correct or better than all others out there? No. Different people-different choices-different goals. I chose this, and this thread was asking about it....so I gave MY opinion on the subject from MY experience so far.
This is by no means a "shortcut" to me. It's simply a 28 day challenge. Something different and exciting for me to do. Just the plain old lift heavy, low reps- lift light,high reps thing just is not as appealing to ME as putting myself through a shredder of discomfort. I desire the challenge, the physical and mental struggle. I desire different. After this challenge, I will probably incorporate some of his methods and exercises into my daily routine because of how much I am enjoying it and feeling the differences.
If evidence is provided that this is actually a detriment to one's body and health, I will take the information and examine it for its soundness then make a decision to continue or not (based on validity)...but until then, I see no reason to dislike this different methodology, especially when I can personally feel it working.
So if you have medical evidence that this is "bad" for you (other than forcing your body to adapt to a different style)....please post or message.
