    This paper is by Ralph Carpinelli. He's connected to the Department of Health Studies, Physical Education and Human Performance Science at Adelphi University. His critical commentary on hypertrophy research is impressive and cannot be ignored by any of us who claim to "know" this or that about how experienced lifters grow.

    This Critical Commentary (attached) addresses some recent review articles and training studies specifically focused on the stimulus for muscle hypertrophy in participants with several years of resistance training experience. It reveals that many of the recommended resistance training protocols have their foundation in some long-held, self-described bias.

    Hello Bryan, I simply love this "
    Note: Although broscience is not a real word, it refers to
    anecdotal and usually clueless opinions about how to train for
    optimal physiological adaptations such as muscle hypertrophy.
    Broscience is not always wrong but usually is not
    substantiated with resistance training studies. Proponents of
    broscience (bros) believe that their opinions are more credible
    than the scientific research."

    Nice paper BTW.

    oh yeah that's a cool paper, I remember that one. So you DO still read on this a bit eh?
    Have you read some of Cody Haun's stuff about sarcoplasmic hypertrophy?
