In many ways we have gotten smarter, but so many times this "smartness" is used to find a way to train easier, or less hard...if that makes sense. Many surround themselves with the comfort of a complex system, trying to disguise the reality that they don't want to work hard.

Most "Men's Health" workouts just lay out a list of exercises, but you will rarely be told that those that succeed bust their nuts with persistence.

The average Joe doesn't like squats and deadlifts and dips and pullups, so they are given a workout that involves lat pulldowns and leg extensions and dumbbell kickbacks and so forth.

Again, this is not an indictment on leg extensions...it's just my opinion on one aspect of modern training.

Also, for the "new" to sell, the old must be classified as useless or inferior.
