I've found it best to take everything with a grain of salt. The only thing I worry about is that overall I'm increasing my weekly workload and getting enough protein, calories and sleep. The rest s debatable. And you'll get there faster by just trying it your self instead.
Don't get me wrong, my eyes light up when I see a new CW article. Him, Staley and Thibs are my favorite contributors. But they too are works in progress and their views change with new knowledge. I basically look for gaps and fill them with my own experience. I figure when I try out everything I have outlined there will be little room for error. Until then I'll be thinking outside the box, even if it's a beautiful box constructed by a good strength coach.
