En rimeligt intetsigende blog-battle mellem Lyle McDonald og Bret Contreras. Problemstillingen er grundlæggende at Bret er blevet glute-training guru på et noget tyndt grundlag. Nogle tvivlsomme EMG-målinger udført på nogle enkelte personer og som støtter hans affinitet for barbell hip thrusters som overlegen øvelse. Lyle McDonald har som oftest ret i sine budskaber, men har ingen tålmodighed overfor uenighed, hvad oftest er forståeligt nok. Lyle anfægter Brets pointe om at squats ikke er effektiv glutetræning, hvilket er nonsens. For dramatikken: http://bretcontreras.com/calling-out-lyle-mcdonald/
Lidt guldkorn fra Lyle:
“For obese folks just trying to lose weight, pretty much any non-retarded diet will work.”
“Recent research has identified that, just as there is a limited ‘anabolic window’ to consume carbohydrates and protein post-workout, it is equally crucial that narcissistic fuckbags post a picture of themselves AT THE FUCKING GYM posing IN THE MIRROR and prattling ABOUT THE WORKOUT THEY JUST COMPLETED to trigger the full anabolic process.
And this must occur within a maximum of 5 minutes of the workout ending. Otherwise it is wasted. Alan Aragon will back me on this. Martin Berkhan would too but will argue that the Facebook anabolic trigger only works if you skip fucking breakfast.
Trust me, I’m a scientist, I can’t make shit like this up. It’s molecular and shit.”
“While I’m not convinced that breakfast makes you hungry, I’m fucking positive that doing deadlifts with this type of shitty form and hyperextending the spine under load is pretty unhealthy. Ain’t that right, Martin? And even Perryman can’t back your play on this one.”
“It’s been fun watching Martin Berkhan turn into the same type of industry twit he used to criticize. Case in point his most recent critique of breakfast for ‘making you hungry’ which is just cherry picked bullshit. He’s so determined to make everything into a support of IF that he’s just ignoring data left and right. To whit: HIGH PROTEIN breakfasts reliably blunt hunger. Of course that doesn’t support IF so he can’t talk about that. Fuck him and his mindless fucking followers.”
“I never cease to be amused with the rapidity with which Christian twats unfriend me when, after they post their trite shit about “God being good, so very good” I ask why he doesn’t seem to give the first fuck about the 3/4 of the planet currently starving to death. Or ask them if their God only cares about folks who are rich and white? You’d think that their omniscient/omnipotent/
“If you think you can outwork genetics, I want you to change your hair color. Or eye color. Or limb length. Or height. Just by working at it. Those are all set by genetics and no amount of work can change them short of artificial means. So why do people think this doesn’t hold for everything else with a genetic determinant such as muscle mass? I mean other than the fact that they are idiots.”
“Ever notice how a lot of gay dudes are really buff and lean? I wonder when T-nation will write an article suggesting going gay to it’s readers as a way to get the body they want. It’s sure as shit cheaper than their bullshit supplements”
“If you drove cross country according to Crossfit philosophy.
Monday: Start in New York. Drive 400 miles south by southwest at 65mph.
Tuesday: Drive 6 hours in a random direction.
Wednesday: 1 hour top speed due WEST!
Thursday: DESTROY FRAN!
Friday: 100 miles south east at 120 MPH.
Saturday: Drive 50 miles North, 75 miles south, 40 miles east. 3 Rounds.
Sunday: Wonder why the fuck you aren’t getting anywhere.”
“The Crossfit concept applied to learning French
Monday: Study French vocabulary for 5 minutes
Tuesday: ALGEBRA problems for time!
Wednesday: Write Cyrillic alphabet backwards. Repeat 3 times.
Thursday: Take a photo doing a handstand.
Friday: Study French history. It’s French so it counts.
Saturday: DESTROY FRAN!
Sunday: Fuck a French girl or boy depending on preference. It’s still French so it still counts.”
“Here’s a completely updated list of all of the elite athletes that Crossfit has produced (and competing in the Crossfit ‘games’ does not count because exercise is not a sport):
That’s right, it’s still zero. And their ratio of rhabdo cases/injuries produced to elite athletes produced is still INFINITY because of this”
“Alright paleo-tards. Time to put your money where your mouth is. Because now research shows that ancestral man ate each other. If you want to ‘be paleo’ go eat a human being. If you’re going to draw the line here, then just recognize that EVERY OTHER LINE you draw is equally arbitrary and shut the fuck up. You either do it 100% or not at all.”
“Wanna really roll paleo? Drop dead by age 35-40 of parasites and disease because you don’t have modern medicine or multivitamins or any of that shit. And make sure that your children have a massive death rate because you give birth to them at home instead of in a nice non-paleo hospital At least then we won’t have to listen to your bullshit. Or let you raise children as fucking dumb as you.”
“Paleoman didn’t have Iphones, home computers, cars, vibram 5-fingers, glasses, Facebook or anything else you hypocrites rationalize is ok while you bitch about grains in the modern diet. If you’re going to thump on about being Paleo, go live in a cave, hunt your own food, make your own clothes and shut the fuck up.”
