Okay. this is a weird one, but bare with me on this as it is just a conspiracy lol and have no evidence to back it up and all science goes against
the idea. However looking at the financial aspects of things, well you'll see.
according to the weider principles the best method is to train;
1. no more than 45 minutes a day.
2. eat 1.5g protein per lb of bodyweight.
3. between 8-12 reps per set.
These will be what we are mainly looking at. So heres the conspiracys lol.
1. TRAIN NO MORE THAN 45 MINUTES PER DAY.
basically what i believe here is that although there is such a thing as overtraining the muscles you are entitled to spend up to 3 hours per day in
imagine if you were told you should train 3 hours per day, are around the world would be packed, because people who would normally be there for 40
minutes will be there for 3 hours. lets do the maths.
1 o'clock until 4 o'clock 40 minutes per day
10 enter at 1:00
10 enter at 1:30
10 leave at 1:40
12 enter at 2:00
10 leave at 2:20
9 enter at 2:30
12 leave at 2:40
6 enter at 3:00
9 leave at 3:10
13 enter at 3:30
6 leave at 3:40
if this is how people enter and leave the gym then the max in the gym at any time would be around the 20 mark.
however incorparate this into 3 hours and there would be roughly 100 people in the gym at any given time. Gyms would have to be huge to hold this
many people at any given time, specially the more popular ones. There would be no such thing as a small gym lol. im sure you can workout for
yourself which is going to make the gym more money.
EAT AT LEAST 1.5g PROTEIN PER 1lb OF BODYWEIGHT.
Now imagine all these people trying to build muscle. Theres no way on earth they are going to do it by eating food. They need aid from other
sources, i.e. protein shakes. Think about how much the industry has made by selling protein drinks alone. Now although protein is essential for
building muscle there's no way you would need the amount that is being advised to you.
Imagine if you only needed 70g protein per day max. that would easily be digested in natural foods without even having to diet specifically for
building muscle. And if that happens there no making money. They try to pressure you into buying drinks also by telling you that you need at least
50g at least 45 minutes after a session, this makes you head straight to the protein bar to buy a shake. Which means they make money.
im sure you've figured out for youself the point im trying to get across here. Basically the protein business is a scam, they are trying to tell you
that you need more that you actually do need in order to convince you to buy your supplements.
3. THEY SAY ITS BEST TO DO BETWEEN 8-12 REPS PER SET
okay this is kind of the same conspiracy as the first.
basically if your doing 20-25 reps per exercise then the person waiting to use the dumbell or machine after you is going to be getting pretty ticked
off about how long your taking. lol.
I dont actually follow these principles myself, just a general conspiracy i thought about. Suppose i was just thinking outside the box, wayyyyy
outside the box lol.
can anyone think of anything else to add? lol
