Hey, that's ok BT. I am not being hard on those that ask.
It's just a myth perpetuated in this industry, and is not a viable or needed approach unless you take steroids or are an advanced lifter after more strength.
I have no grudge against those that ask. They can't control the information they are given. It simply annoys me that this bodybuilding magazine-style nonsense keeps rolling down the assembly line each and every day.
It confuses people. They start believing they have to dump squats after 8 weeks and replace it with X or gains will stop.
My only beef is with magazines and trainers who speak to naturals using approaches and theories that aren't needed for naturals.
I am talking strictly in terms of muscle building here. Strength training can be more complicated because you can still see strength gains once muscle building all but stops.
