I want to apologize to Tim, TC and the contributing writers at T-Nation. I am apologizing on behalf of some of my fellow T-Nation brethren who have become a bit juvenile and cavalier toward T-Nation, the best site on the internet pertaining to strength training and conditioning (not to mention the fact that it’s free!).
Recently there was a thread titled “T-Vaginas” that detailed the dismal demise of T-Nation.
For the record, T-Nation does a great job at making sure that we keep getting our doses of quality information about training and nutrition each week. The contributing writers submit excellent articles only to have them picked apart by internet geniuses and know-it-alls with 3 full-months of training under their belts.
I’m not so concerned with my brethren’s opinions as the manner in which they express those opinions. They need to show some tact and diplomacy.
Warning: Sarcasm ahead.
How dare T-Nation not force a contributing writer who gained success and reached a point where he doesn’t need to write anymore to write more articles!
How dare T-Nation allow an article about training females AND an article about leg extensions in the same week! What are they gonna do next, change the site’s name to E-Nation (Estrogen Nation)?
And can you believe the nerve of these moderators, allowing newbies to repost? It’s blatantly apparent that T-Nation is going down faster than Fedor Emelianenko’s next opponent! What should we do?
Perhaps I should ask TC to let me write a series of articles about supersetting squats and deadlifts with ripping the limbs off of the dipshit doing curls in the squat rack and drinking the ensuing blood spatter for some “peri-workout” nutrition (TC, you might need to help me with an acronym for that routine). This might settle some folks down and wet their voracious appetites for the time being.
End of sarcasm.
News flash T-Barbarians:
Times are changing. The fitness industry is evolving. T-Nation is evolving. More females are visiting the site. Young, ravenous contributing writers are revolutionizing the industry. They are addressing the importance of mobility and exercise selection in terms of injury prevention for continued athletic improvement.
They are reconsidering the optimal way to train the core musculature for athletic purposes. They are delving into the sciences and collaborating with experts, leaving no stone unturned.
T-Nation is still all about training like a sex-deprived Silverback Gorilla hopped up on PCP. The only differences are that Modern T-Nation Gorilla is going to activate and disinhibit his glutes with some bird dogs and static hip flexors stretches before he performs his front squats with chains and power snatches from the hang, and he won’t want his sexy Gorilla girlfriend getting a thick midsection by doing any direct ab work, unless she’s an athlete, in which case he’ll have her train her core for stability with suitcase deadlifts, zercher squats and pillar bridges.
In other words, I’m satisfied with the direction of T-Nation, I value the contributing writers, and I thank Tim and TC for the excellent site.
