I actually get downvoted for giving answers that include links to peer-reviewed research.
Are we really trying to give helpful answers or just feeding our egos?
Yes, we hate science! We're a lot of unicorn-strokers and alchemists! I stoke my moonstone daily, in order to make intuitive food choices.
Just because you link to peer-reviewed research doesn't mean your answer is good. For example, don't you know that high-fat diets cause dementia? And cancer? Don't downvote me, it's peer-reviewed research, so I automatically must know something and deserve respect!
Sam, i down voted you on the "hack my lifting plan" question.
So you posted some links with science junk. Cool, but what about some good ole common sense? I'll be honest with you, those long writen peer reviews are a waste of time for me.(I'm sure for others to). 2-3 paragraphs in & I'm lost. I'm not a scientist which means i dont have the proper training to fully digest & understand these reviews. Instead, I have to base my beliefs on what workef for me or people I know.
I've upvoted you in the past. But to say squats & dead lifts are the same & no need for verticle pushing/pulling proves to me your ignorance to training. That's why I felt jusifyed to down vote.
