I posted a thread a few weeks ago about sarcoplasmic and myofibrillar hypertrophy.

The majority of you dispelled it as a myth
Did we? Or did we say it wasn't important in the grand scheme of things?

I don't recall saying the 2 different forms of hypertrophy were a myth. I recall saying that focusing on them was a waste of time in the grand scheme of things.

The things that are important are:

1) Consistent training.
2) Getting stronger.
3) Using a good selection of exercises.
4) Eating the proper amount of food for your goals.

My point was that chasing magic rep ranges, programs, PCF ratios, etc, was a waste of time, and completely misses the important things.

Too many guys de-value what's important, and over-inflate the minutiae.

I rank "forms of hypertrophy" on the same level as the "post-workout window of opportunity." Interesting to read about, but when the rubber hits the road you still need things framed with the basics listed above.
