We have all seen these headlines that the authors claim to have found the secrets of fitness and performance that we are all looking for. However, in actuality these headlines are nothing more than click-bait to try and pass someone’s agenda onto the ignorance of the public. Headlines and articles like these lead me into something very important when scouring the Internet for information. Where you get your information might be more important than what the information says.
So much of the fitness related industry and available information is not backed by scientific literature or proof. You will see through my posts that all of the information is referenced by peer reviewed research or textbooks. I am going to try and break the trend of this click bait fitness information and provide with you proven information.
Any person who has dieted, worked out, or thought about either can relate to the little narrative I am about to tell, especially in their novice days. There is one person with a good physique who is doing much more talking than actually lifting. Leaning against the dumbbell rack and shedding knowledge that was passed down from the founding fathers of bro science. Telling other novice lifters the secrets to gaining muscle similarly to how it was told to them. While there is definitely some truth behind the folklore, some of it is exactly that, just misinterpreted information that has been passed down for generations. Situations like I listed above occur everyday throughout the country and can be avoided if people payed attention to where they got their information.
