This post was deleted by the mods from the original article forum. I hope this is a more exceptable forum for my thoughts. Although I love this site and everything its stands for, I don’t to think that we readers are not allowed to disagree with writers. The mods say they want to protect their authors who give us articles for free. Kinda of free, expect for all the Biotest products that we buy to keep their business running. No disrespect to this site, which again I deeply appreciate, but please remember your customer base, we pay your bills, not your authors.
The problem with the article is not really that it is too abstract, Eastern, or touchy-feely, its that its logic is not valid. Charles started at the end and work backwards. He started with a conclusion and then wrote his hypothesis. He basically started with 5 major training theories/methods i.e. Louie Simmmons (WSB), Mentzer (HIT), Arnold (standard high volume bodybuilding), then give justification for each. He basically says everything works, but not for everyone, well no shit!! It seems to me that he is using this article to excuse bad programs and ineffective systems because everybody is different and might respond to something that is wrong for somebody else. I wonder if Pavel’s system becomes more popular we will develop a sixth element. Or a seventh for Body-For-Lifers. Do you see my point: body types first, then systems; not systems and then body types to explain them.
Where does heart, desire, blood, sweat, and tears factor in.
