While perusing the older articles (this one being “The Training Split Roundtable”), I stumbled upon a comment from ‘CaliforniaLaw’"
"The only way to settle the debate is this: Build two groups of people. Put one group on a TBT program. Put the other on a split-based program. At the end of 16 weeks, see who looks better.
My money is on this: The TBT people will have better PC development and blockier appearances, where as the split-based people will have more aesthetically pleasing physiques.
Maybe T-Nation should start a challenge and settle this debate once and for all."
Okay, I’m just saying, I think this is a helluva idea, and should be looked into. It would make for a very nice Transformation Series of sorts.
(As an aside, I think it would be best to take on only intermediates, as I think this would be who the average T-Nation reader could identify with)
