We try to post monthly content but actually we use the whenever we get time method.
There's been a lot of talk about a paper that is reported to demonstrate that low repetitions and high repetitions to exhaustion result in the same outcomes of strength and size. Here we look at that paper, its problems, and at what we can really learn from it.

Everyone who works in the fitness industry and works with clients should be able to read relevant science papers objectively and critically. I wrote THIS ARTICLE so people who have never studied science or read a science paper can have a guide through the process. Even though I think I'm pretty objective, you can read the same papers I do and decide if they are useful or a waste for yourself.
There are well designed experiments and informative papers in the exercise sciences. These are not them. For a variety of reasons, these papers are as much unintentional fiction as they are intended science. We are not casting aspersions, we are simply identifying flawed concepts, faulty experiments, and mispresented data. We believe this will help move the fitness industry forward and keep academia honest.
