Quotes from Martin Rooney:

Quote:
If you're not going to stay consistent and put in the hours, weeks, months, or years, I don't care what you know...If your butt isn't in the gym I don't want to hear about how you're not getting results. And continuity isn't that complicated. Hell, if you did a couple hundred pushups, 100 squats, 100 chin-ups, 50 deadlifts, and 50 bench presses every week for five years and ate pretty well you'd be in pretty good shape.
Quote:
Training six days per week isn't going to do anything for your body but break it down unless you've got recovery built in.
Quote:
That's the classic nature of people, though. We'll skip the basics and get pissed when the sexy stuff doesn't work.
Quote:
Let's cut through the crap, all periodization means is to have a plan. Preferably one you've thought about for a while and wrote down. I don't care if it's for a day or a week as long as you have one. And really, I never go beyond a week of training because you can't see that far into the future and predict your results. You gotta go with what your body can give you that day.
Quote:
I'm not against any lift. I don't think anyone really has a true understanding of what the body can and can't endure. But I am against power cleans if you're not strong enough to clean two socks off the floor.
