I'm genuinely curious if you could expand on that specifically. It doesn't seem to me that there's a massive gap there, so I'd like to know what I might be missing. Basically, what do you think the theory is, and where do you see the big gap?Hanley wrote: ↑Sun Nov 12, 2023 10:31 pmMy issue with model is the claim that fatigue-induced velocity loss = increase muscle tension (because [hand wave] force velocity curve. There's a massive explanatory gap there....and I haven't really seen much compelling evidence (you'd think the evidence would be clear as fuck for such a central physiological principle).quikky wrote: ↑Sun Nov 12, 2023 7:31 pm5@3 is likely useless, 5@5 barely so, 5@8 good, and 5@10 maximal when it comes to growth. To me, this is that simple for a lot of bodybuilding work that's more isolated and stable, and not quite so simple for the big compounds, where I am guessing a lot of your observed inconsistencies come from.
I like the article, especially since it is generating an interesting discussion.

There's a verb in Spanish for this guy, "Cantinflear", from which the satirical actor Cantinflas derived his stage name. Seriously, that was an awful lot of total bullshit being paraded as fact, and what I gathered is that this guy probably has absolutely nothing of value to offer. Sorry if that is harsh, but it is what it is and a halfwit gym bro that can't tie his own shoes is probably giving better advice.
I would like to note as well that you said " The funny thing is, I think even on this forum there's a good number of people that were stronger back in the SS days than with what they're doing now that is supposedly more enlightened." and then proceeded to post a valueless article about hypertrophy. Entirely different pursuits. Training for strength will yield some hypertrophic gains, training specifically for hypertrophy hopefully gets you a little bigger and should not be expected to be useful for increased strength. And seriously, that Beardsley guy is an idiot.
Regarding the strength vs hypertrophy part:
