I have to agree with (taken from the conversation):
-I will go as far to say that your CNS controls your gains.
-your CNS controls how many muscle fibers are allowed to fire at one time.
-you need to prime the CNS as part of a good warm-up before you hit your working sets.


And something about this:
-I forgot to mention that Thib's claims are complete bull.

I have to say that, I read Thib, I follow and understand some recommendations/methods of his in training, and I had some decent gains again lately, after about 18 years of training and being 44 years old, like I was a beginner.
My training is mostly CNS based.
So I give a "thumbs up" to Thib.
Brawny...my comment is regarding thib's specific claims to have pressed more then some world records. That sort of mumbo jumbo is attached with the I bodybuilder program. Any program that contains nonsense and hype, I tend to pass on. I respect much of his writing, but for some reason he sold his soul for $$$ on this one.

His specific claims relating to this topic are:
