I just spent a while plowing through the discussion thread on "Evolutionary Fitness." Why does so much of the discussion surrounding strength sports (training, nutrition, etc.) focus on the identification of optimal parameters?
I've read your statement "Everything works . . . for a while." Does OPTIMAL even exist?
If it does, great. What is it? [insert"One Lift a Day" here].
If it doesn't, then why not? Would any of the following contribute to disproving this myth of "best-ness?"
- Individual differences in people
- lack of real-world experience
- absence of profit motive
Thanks for answering, in advance.
PS. In my field (art teacher, among other things), when I?m asked how to draw something, I say "well . . . here's ONE way. It's no better than any other way. It's an AND, not an OR.?" They stare at me blankly and continue to make tiny little unintelligible marks.
