Fiction vs. facts: the eight worst pieces of bro science and the arguments to smash them to bits with!
You never heard the term? Here is how the Urban Dictionary defines it:
Broscience is the predominant brand of reasoning in bodybuilding circles where the anecdotal reports of jacked dudes are considered more credible than scientific research.
I might add that some jacked dudes twist scientific research to support their theories, in hope that no one ever looks up the actual papers.
Here are my favorite eight bro science theories. I did videos on all of them, so you just sit back and watch them nicely relaxed. Just don’t forget you need your 23.5 g of BCAA within 43.1 minutes if we have a full moon today!
No Soreness, No Muscle
Cardio Burns Muscle
Muscle Memory At Work
Training The Inner Chest
Muscle Confusion For Maximum Results
Muscle Burns Lots Of Fat
Raw Eggs Make Bigger Muscles
Targeting The Lower Abs
Will Reason Prevail?
These should give you some pretty arguments next time you encounter one of those workout “experts.” If you actually feel inclined to argue with them. In my experience it’s more enjoyable to reason with a wall.
