so lately ive been really picking up on the amount of criticism there is on here that theres too many people on this site who are tiny and weak giving out tons of advice. i also read a Shugart article about intensity and how it seems to be the x-factor so to speak.
im starting to lean towards the intensity side vs the scientific side. im starting to think that theres a correlation between the amount of “intellectuals” on here and the amount of articles being published.
so what im getting at is can be so simple that all you need to get big is to lift, and lift hard. if you want to be stronger, lift heavier -size will follow. if you want hypertrophy, lift lighter, strength will follow. from what ive seen with my own eyes at the gym is that every single one of the big guys doesnt use a logbook, may have terrible form, and may use terrible exercise choices, but theyre fucking big. then everyone i see with a logbook, trying to emulate perfect form is just some 145 pound twat.
could it be that this is all just bullshit? no program is better than another (unless its plain rediculous), it doesnt matter if you squeeze at the peak, or if you slow concentrics, or squat ATG.
im starting to think…or rather realize that all you need to get big is to lift weights as much as hard as you can. its definately a mental thing, but its not about crunching numbers and physiology its about mental strength to push yourself and bear the pain. oh, and getting in enough caloreis too.
