pookie79, so am I.
I am also "Re-Learning". New research at times overturns what we once believed to be true.
All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident
My initial reaction is the ridicule and opposing it.
The problem with most individuals is they stop there. They never do any homework on it or apply it to their training program.
It is impossible to know if something works without implementing those two factors.
As Einstein said, "Research is what I am doing, when I don't know what I am doing."
What I've found is that most new research that disputes the current dogma is usually on point.
Based on new research and practical experience, I have changed my views on such things as: Kaatsu/Occlusion Training, Post-Activation Potentiation Training, Cluster Sets, Refractory Periods with eating, "Reverse Dieting, Hyperthermia Training,the Ketogenic Diet, Intermittent Fasting, etc.
What I once ridiculed, I now embrace and advocate; depending on someone objective.
I had heated debate with a good friend years ago who's a pencil neck geek that teaches Exercise Physiology at a college.
I told him he was incorrect.
After doing my research and implementing the training method, I told him that he was correct.
His reply was, "Then you were wrong."
My reply, "NO, I did not admit to being wrong. I ONLY acknowledged you were right.
