This crap is the number one reason why I ignore studies.

That's a load of crap. Has anyone heard of McMaster University?

The turds did leg extensions, and scientists conclude that light weights were the winner.

The men behind this study should be fired. How can they can this academic?

Try squats or deadlifts, then come back and tell me that light weight wins.

Someone just told me it's peer reviewed, so it's "valid". I'm feeling ill.

If anything it reveals that an extended TUT is superior for a newb. Weight + greater time = much greater stress for a newb.

But as the body rapidly adapts to this light weight, progression is required. Light weight becomes heavy weight, and the study's conclusion collapses in upon itself.

Let them do leg extensions for light weight. That's working real well for the armies of gym rats who aren't making progress.

Yeah, it's a Canadian university, and a pretty decent one for engineering. I dont have much idea about their physiology departments.

By and large, the peer-review system works well in engineering and natural sciences. This is not to say that this is a fool-proof system. There has been multiple instances where folks have bluffed through the system. I wouldn't hold anything sacrosanct just because it has passed peer-review.

My main issue with the way science is done today is that research results are sensationalized way too much. If only they had not felt the need to sensationalize their work by making tall claims of "new paradigms" and bothered to look at the results without their retard filters, they would have seen that all the results say is this: total workout volume (weight x reps x sets) is important.

This isn't a "new" paradigm as they claim. This is something that has been known for ages by bodybuilders, the only difference being that those meatheads applied this idea much more sensibly than the pencil necks - i.e. by going relatively high volume with HEAVY weights instead of pussy weights (and exercises).
