Here's what I think the problem is...

Advanced lifters, bodybuilders or powerlifters, do require more thought (and science) to be successful. Bodybuilder diets and getting shredded without losing muscle is not easy. Adding strength once you hit soft walls is not easy.

But, a certain small percentage of these advanced lifters (and of course Internet parrots) take this need to be complex and place it upon beginning and intermediate lifters who don't need it. Everything suddenly becomes rocket science. We have beginners doing speed benching and bulk and cut cycles and it turns the lifting world into one big fubared mess.

Beginners need to be taught the basics. Intermediate have worked the basics and season them with time, progression and enough food. Neither of them need E=MC squared. Unfortunately, 9 times out of 10 they are being taught E=MC squared by some e-book guy or parrot.

/End my 2 cents.
