Training Confusion and "Science"
This is a subject that I think about often, and I would love to hear your feedback...
Many, many bodybuilding and training gurus have systems that are based on science...but they all generally contradict one another...
Dr Squat.. Dr. Squat is a big believer in periodization and his 7 primary principles of lifting, which of course are based on science. And from this, Dr. Squat has developed the ABC training system. ABC is a split routine with heavy, light and moderate days.
Ellington Darden. Ell Darden's books are stuffed with scientific studies that back HIT training. Ell believes in full body workouts and one set to failure per exercises... 2-3 times a week.
John Little. John little just might be the king of stuffing science into his books. He believes in static contraction holds, and no conventional reps at all. His workouts involved less then 1 minute total workout time.
Casey Butt. One of the smartest guys in the iron game...Casey believes in old school training...full body workouts, not to failure, multiple times per week.
And of course we have the less then scientific, but no less persuasive...
Dante. DC Training involves split routines, training to failure, negative reps, and only 3 days rest between bodypart workouts. There are some big dudes that use DC Training.
Ronnie Rowland. Ronnie preaches his own brand of training...Slingshot Training (STS)...Slingshot is good old fashion high volume training, nut incorporates de-load periods making more of a dual-factor based system.
On and on we could go. My point is this:
Most of these training systems are based on science and studies. (Most, not all). But they all contradict one another. What is your take on training, and why do you believe what you believe?
