I am guilty of linking far too many people to a couple of articles on genetic muscular potential over the years, believing the formulas and calculations discussed within to be the definitive word on the subject of what a drug free athlete can achieve.

They are not. That is my mistake, and one I'm going to correct here.

Key points:
• There are limitations to the maximum drug-free muscular potential models out there.
• It’s useful to be aware of them, but you shouldn’t necessarily cap yourself at what these calculators would peg you as being capable of achieving.
• As fun as it would be, it is not possible to simply make a calculation to determine whether someone is ‘roided to the gills or not.

Not expecting to be liked for this one but it needs to be said. http://rippedbody.jp/maximum-muscular-potential/

This is too good to not share:

“The principle of converging evidence is applied in situations requiring a judgment about where the “preponderance of evidence” points. Most areas of science contain competing theories. The extent to which a particular study can be seen as uniquely supporting one particular theory depends on whether other competing explanations have been ruled out. A particular experimental result is never equally relevant to all competing theories. An experiment may be a very strong test of one or two alternative theories but a weak test of others. Thus, research is considered highly convergent when a series of experiments consistently supports a given theory while collectively eliminating the most important competing explanations. Although no single experiment can rule out all alternative explanations, taken collectively, a series of partially diagnostic experiments can lead to a strong conclusion if the data converge.

Contrast this idea of converging evidence with the mistaken view that a problem in science can be solved with a single, crucial experiment, or that a single critical insight can advance theory and overturn all previous knowledge. This view of scientific progress fits nicely with the operation of the news media, in which history is tracked by presenting separate, disconnected “events” in bite-sized units. This is a gross misunderstanding of scientific progress and, if taken too seriously, leads to misconceptions about how conclusions are reached about research-based practices.”

Just a heads up, the "Training Effectively - Core Principles" guide has been updated and extended considerably to help tie in some of the recent geekier articles with that key guide.

Finally here, and just before the weekend. 

This bulking guide is something that people have been bugging me to write for nearly three years, but truthfully, back then I didn’t feel that I had enough experience to write one without simply parroting things I had read elsewhere and applied to only a handful of clients.

But I’m glad that I waited, as coaching a lot of people through a bulk is the only way I could find out what stuff really matters vs what doesn’t, and come up with my own way of doing things.

Hope you enjoy it, but moreover, implement it and go on towards Swoledom, like my man Menno in the photo.

Go get those gains.

This detailed bulking guide is based on experiences working with clients over the last four years. I'll show you what really matters, and how to implement it.

"An evidence based approach means to understand the body of research - cause we can all cherry pick studies that support our opinion - that's called confirmation bias, not an evidence based approach.

An evidence based approach, contrary to what people think, isn't just saying, 'Ok so this is what the research shows so we are doing this!' it's about understanding the body of research, understanding it's limitations, and then taking into account our own personal experience as well as the needs and abilities of the individual." - Brad Schoenfeld

Danny Lennon interviewing Lyle McDonald on his podcast.

He talks about the metabolic adaptations that take place when dieting, the connection between cortisol and water retention and the role of leptin in dieting and weight regain.

Absolute masterclass.

Podcast interview with Greg Nuckols is now up.

I hope you enjoy this somewhat rambling conversation between two friends. We cover a lot of topics, not just on lifting, but on business, ethics, beer and Greg’s terrible taste in music.
