Default "Any program works" for muscle building

A small rant.

It is fatiguing to see beginning lifters across the net on other forums given a focus other than "get stronger."

Today I witnessed a frustrated kid on a bloated split cry for help. A member of this forum tried to help him by telling him to move to the basics, and to get stronger. The result? Other posters swarmed in and tried to tell the kid "any program works", or "fullbodies aren't the best", or whatever.

Fullbodies aside, NONE of these characters told the kid TO GET STRONGER. Sure, anything works. That doesn't mean it's efficient. Anything CAN work if you get stronger using it. That's not an excuse to train like a fool, wasting time and energy on an excessive amount of lifts that don't provide much bang for the buck.

Here is some faultless logic:

I have never met a weak bodybuilder. Some of them think they are weak, but they are not. They are much stronger than they think. Of these bodybuilders, they all use different training styles.

Conclusion. Get strong. It can help you thrive on even the worst of programs.

To these beginners, and the people across the net that give them bad advice...stop focusing on splits and fancy setups. Start focusing on getting your bench to 315 and squat to 405.
