I'm drowning here.
I took the list T.C. put up in the Axe Joe article. I took out what I already knew and was applying, and then I took out all the references to testicles.
Then I googled all the terms I didn't know like "stretch-shortening cycle" and "wave loading" or couldn't remember like "EPA and DHA".
I'm already doing this stuff, I just call it different names. For instance I take flax, I should take more, I will. Years ago I read some book by some guy from Bulgaria and he said make the negative longer, I've been doing that for years.
Bottom Line: I'm reading science and nutrition sites and following the research. I read T-Mag articles. I read Peak Performance, which is sometimes sparce, not focused on power building but an unbeatable resource all the same. ITS ALL TOO MUCH. I don't have enough time to put all this crap together and figure out where my training plan for this quarter is failing. Do I get results? Sure. Am I enjoying myself? Yes. Do I feel confident I'm maximizing my gym time and eating the best plan, given what there is to know? NOT.
I want T-Mag to offer a service where I pay some money, fill out a form on what I'm eating/how I'm training, and some of the T-Mag jokers send me a few important bullets they think I should take very seriously. I want to be able to do this once a quarter. I'm not saying that this is a substitute for my own ongoing education and personal planning, but given how much info is out there and the fact that life is hard, I want T-Mag to at least have my back.
Provided I pay through the nose. I buy grow, I eat the damn brownie bars, now help me out. Figure out a way to charge me for some personal training advice on a macro level once every three months. Dude! I'd do it for you. If I had time. And knew as much as you guys. And somebody wrote me a cranky email.
I wear a suit every day and solve other people's problems, I got a wife I gotta pay attention to, I got personal enrichment I gotta keep up with...
I wouldn't be suprised if you were already doing this. The site is steroids compared to its early days, when I wouldn't have made this request. But your entre penures or something now. What do you think?
