You’d think that and it should be the case, but reality bears out that it’s not, unfortunately. A while back, most of the sections did have a handful of stickies relevant to them. Combat had their own, TRT, Pharma, Beginners, whatever.
They were fine for a while, but eventually the views stalled out because people simply stopped looking at them. Instinct beat common sense and people who wanted to ask their question asked their question. Research, schmesearch.
I mean, folks here are great and all, but if we removed anything that qualified as a silly training or nutrition topic, things would get much quieter all-around. The Beginners forum would be mostly crickets, since “shut up and just do this and this for 6 months” would solve 90% of a beginner’s issues.
This is where the idea of a cure-all FAQ gets muddy, because a lot of different stuff can work. Like in this case, are you having protein and carbs in a shake during training? 50g of cyclic dextrins are more useful than eating a cup of rice in the pre- or post-workout meal. So it’s not necessarily a one size fits all (no pun intended) answer.
Nevermind the fact that an FAQ that’s supposed to address all the big, basic questions would need to have undeniably “correct” answers that aren’t open for debate or interpretation because, if there’s room for a follow-up question, it defeats the purpose. Those types of answers are few and far between when it comes to training and diet.
So, it’s a good idea in general, just not practical and not really the time-saver it’s supposed to be.
