Default Steve Shaw: Expert and Pro Bodybuilder

I've officially become an expert.

5x5 Workout Instructions | LIVESTRONG.COM

Fitness expert Steve Shaw recommends starting with two warmup sets using less than your maximum weight to create an effective 5x5 workout.
And a pro bodybuilder!

Weight Training Workouts From Professionals | LIVESTRONG.COM

Pro bodybuilder Steve Shaw of Muscle and Strength offers a five-day split for effectively building strength.
It seems is building articles completely off a mangled combination of other articles. One paragraph paraphrases article A, the next article B, and so on...

I've skimmed the site for my name and found that these types of articles are wildly popular on that site. What they are doing is paying keyboard writers $10 an hour to churn out trash, and because of Livestrong's site weight with Google, they funnel more traffic away from the real articles, and into their pocket.

No real writing involved. Much easier than coming up with their own ideas.

So if you've wondered why a lot of Livestrong articles appear to be crap, it's because they will snipe and hype anyone and everyone even if they are clueless like me.
