There is more then one way to skin a cat…the old saying goes. So there are numerous ways to get bigger, stronger, and leaner.
However some approaches will just not work, for example the idea that light weight and high reps will get you tone, it will not. And it wont work for anyone.
At any rate a lot of people post questions and they get a lot of answers often times they are referred to articles on this site. I feel this is the best approach.
Why would I give you my opinion on ab training for example when Christian Thibadeau and others who write for this site have much more experience in traning others then I do.
If you are going to take advice or give it, make sure its backed up by research and physiology, not just what you think works for you. Look at how Chad Waterbury writes his articles, he backs up what he says, so does Christian.
I guess my point is that if you are going to give advice you should be able to back it up. If you are going to take advice make sure it makes sense and is backed up by facts. Not just the fact that “it works for me”
