1) Again ...lifting speed is a seperate entity & doesn't factor into the hypertrophy process. Breaking down the contractile proteins does, this does not require a SPEED when training.
2) Nobody ever mentioned a thing about fiber recruitment. But, I think that's where you want to take the idea of a hypertrophy response. Well then, fiber recruitment will have nothing to do with the hypertrophy process, in the sense that it has to be certain fibers or speeds.
3) Answer: Real easy ...STRESS. If there isn't a great enough of a stressor placed on the muscle, then the overcompensation will be very little. Still, nothing involving lifting speeds has been of use so far with the exception of fiber recruitment, which is a seperate argument from this one.
4) No! The answer is... standing up out of a chair doesn't involve enough stress, not unless it had some accumulation to it that was done over time and provoked an accumulation of volume response. No response is needed on ANY muscular fiber; rather it be slow or fast twitch, which is all growth responsive. You seem to miss the point that most of your muscles are made up of about half of each type of fibers.
I like the CW ass kissing going on here, but then again ...his theorys don't have much to show for hypertrophy when compared to real world results of historicly proven methods ...as opposed to theorys. Even his theorys are proven wrong with real world results, but they make a nice billboard I guess.
5) Hmmmm.... First TRUE thing you have really typed in the post. I'll AGREE!
6) You seem to want to argue RECRUITMENT, rather then lifting speed & its response to hypertrophy. Recruitment does me no good unless I break the contractile proteins down. I can recruit every strand of every muscle in my body in 1 rep, if the contractile proteins are not broken down and forced to overcompensate ...then so much for recruitment. On the other hand, I can recruit barely any fiber at all, but if I cause enough of it to break down ...then I create the hypertrophy response.
7) Mostly true ...although the thought process actually controls recruitment more than most think, regardless of the lifting speed or the load. But yeah, in a general sense that is correct. Trying to move the resiistance slower will involve a different recruitment pattern ...less the thought process that already went through the nervous system. Example: If I grab a weight and think beforehand that I'm going to curl it 50 timesl even though I may only be able to do it 25, the thought process helps stimulate which fibers will be needed to complete the task before a weight is even touched. Topic for another thread.
SIDE NOTE As long as you can seperate your ideas of fiber recruitment resulting in more or less hypertrophy, then you'll be more in tune here. The stress factor you are pretty much overlooking, the guy that stresses his muscle more will overcompensate better than you because he understood the rebuilding process. The recruitment process doesn't translate to an automatic overcompensation process. Recruitment translates to recruitment, that's it.
Lifting a weight slowly can or cannot have a hypertrophy response. Lifting a weight fastly can or cannot have a hypertrophy response. More or less hypertrophy in any lift(with regards to speed of the lift) is circumstancial and individual. The problem with CW's theorys are that they are too generalized, this makes things sound good in theory. In reality it takes more than a theory to actualize a result.
CONCLUSION: You have a good point(recruitment) but it is useless here. Trying to conform to others ideas really just limits your own. Not only that, it falsifies things that you already know as true. Perception of speed, and perception by neurological responses to those speeds & fiber recruitment also come into play here. Hypertrophy is a seperate entity. Don't mix oil & water ...it just creates a big mess.
