Workout research and science is one of the most important requirements of helping us to advance our knowledge of training and ultimately the gains we make in the gym. That said, if published literature is the only place that you are turning to as your source for what is working and what is not, then you are definitely going to want to watch this video.
New research is published every single day by some very smart researchers in the field of strength and conditioning. Being able to discern what from the published studies actually holds up in the gym across thousands of real world trainees with differing body types, genetics, etc is what ultimately determines the success of that study.
Even then, relying on the research alone is full of problems as well. Did you know, most people read the abstracts of the published research and draw their conclusions from that. Abstracts by nature are supposed to be brief and must convey the definitive summary of what the researcher believes was determined by the study. Much of the potential alternatives and explanations for what could also be going on is confined to the discussion section of the fully published article. Only when the entire study is read would one be able to discern those details which could be very very important.
The next thing that you have to understand about research is that much of it is conducted in the university setting with college aged subjects that are participating on Summer break or for extra credit in their curriculum. While the greatest of efforts and the highest of standards could be met in order to make sure that valid research is collected DURING the testing time, there is very little control for what happens the minute the test subject leaves the lab.
This can have an enormous impact on the state of the subject when they return to the lab/gym for a subsequent follow up test. If one was out partying or drinking heavily the night before a crucial retest, their performance could be significantly impacted. Without disclosing that to the researcher however, this could go unnoted and the data could be swayed.
More so, even when someone looks at the data that is published and draws the same conclusions as those of the researcher it doesn’t automatically mean that all other previous research is rendered useless or defunct. If high reps are effective at building muscle for instance, does that mean that they are best for building muscle? There could be other means that are just as effective or even more effective that would not have been accounted for in the study.
There’s a common mistake that we make to jump to conclusions on limited information. If I like cars and I like the color blue, making the conclusion that I like blue cars would be a mistake.
The bottom line is this, research in the field of strength and conditioning is critical to advancing our understanding of how best to train our bodies moving forward. This channel was created with the goal of doing just that. Just as were the training programs available at http://athleanx.com that are specific to many individual goals. If you are looking to put the science back in strength and want to put in the hard work to put the science to work for you, then it’s time to start training like an athlete with ATHLEAN-X today.
