You know what mate, this is exactly what i came across when i started picking up weights in my gym about 4 years ago. but the brilliant thing is, just keep training the T-Nation way (even though that offers a huge range of training styles and i got results from defranco ws4sb or JW 5/3/1).
The reason i say this is because in this time span i have leapfrogged all of these self proclaimed experts and where i accomplish a lot in 45 minutes to an hour, all the assholes, like those you speak of, are STILL EXACTLY THE SAME as they were 4 years ago, hitting biceps and abs from every angle for 3 hours a day.
as an after thought, heavy and low box squats scares the shit out of everyone and shuts them the hell up.
ps where is your gym?
