I’m hoping this thread will iniate one of the prolific authors here into a little critical analysis of the present state of affairs of all things related to human movement of a barbell. This may or may not be original thinking to some here. ^ That in itself is a good example of why this board is pretty freakin good…it covers sooo much ground related to lifting.
Not in any particular order… First, the real start of periodization evidently had nothing to do peaking of max lifts and everything to do w/ the peaking of the steroid dosage. Bob Hoffman simply drew the wrong conclusion about some information he came into possesion of.
Second, the deplorable conditions of powerlifting. Ironmind make mention of this in one of its catalogs by saying jokingly “going shopping for a federation”. I mean hell just how many federations are there? Now it seems every major fed has its own raw, equipped, tested, untested, breifed, unbreifed, wrapped, unwrapped divisions. I’m not standing on both or either side of this fence but I personally feel something needs to be done once and for all. I realize this probably not gonna happen but I can dream right? I guess its just a personal decision, or is it?
Why is it most juicers (I use a little) honestly feel that anabolic hormones were/are pharmaceutically engineered for athelitic purposes? < Total BS. I posted this elsewhere but as an example…Equipoise was definitely NOT originally engineered for freakin horses. No offense to Mr Ed but Equipoise technically means balance not equine drug.
I’m sure this has Jeff Everson has written something similair to this thread but I’d like to know if anyone else here feels anything similair to how I do.
I feel much better now.
