While this site has grown, it has almost lost the hardcore aspect that it originally had. I don’t know about anyone else, but I am truly tired of some aspects of training being analyzed to the most minute detail when the person just started lifting and what they really need is enough motivation to work hard enough to actually sweat in the gym.
I agree that it has lost some of its hardcore appeal, but then again, Testosterone.net (T-Nation) is growing quickly, and as a business (selling supplements), sometimes the hardcore agenda is too much for some and doesn’t appeal to enough audiences. It would be great if it could remain hardcore, but with so many people finding T-Nation on a regular basis, it may not be possible. Especially since many come from other fitness sites and have no training experience.
I do agree about things being analyzed too much around here (especially lately). If beginners (and others) stuck with compound exercises and just worked hard and strived to lift heavier weights and progress through time, many of the minute details wouldn’t be such a big deal.
