Too much readie readie not enough liftie liftie?
I was at a book store that deals in vintage books (yes I collect books), and I got a hold of a Bodybuilding book from the early '80s. I skimmed through a few pages, and in a nutshell if a rookie lifter wanted to get pointed in the right direction there it was. I forget the title and author of the book, but it did get me thinking is there too much information out there (with the rise of the internet) to the point of over-saturation? Myself, I listened to the big and strong guy and low and behold I got big and strong. I think with the rise of science in Bodybuilding (the pencil neck with "10 arms with the electrodes stuffed up his ass telling us what the best way is and the ghost writers in the muscle porn mags) the pursuit/sport has taken huge steps backward. The rabbit was always in the hat, it's just now you have to sift through a metric ton of shit to find it. There are so many different views/concepts that I can see (and have seen) new lifters being pulled in so many different directions that they don't gain anything, then they give up thinking everyone must be on steroids that make big gains. What are your thoughts?
