well in my opinion i think hes kinda right. TBT i guess wouldn't be as good if you're trying to be a bodybuilder. but bodybuilder train for appearance not performance. in my opinion TBT is much better for performance though. thats just what i think i could be wrong lol.

you need to have quite the foundation base before doing split workouts as they really improve your "quality', not mass or strength really...

strength is king and all other components build off that (endurance, hypertrophy etc)...at least of your strong then you can simply change a few training bits and peices as well as diet and grow as much as you want but if your big and then want to get strong it'ss take you ages

I've tried split training ever which way 'til Tuesday and It's always let me down.

I dunno, maybe I'm just not built for it or something but I always gain my best strength, performance, size definition and any other positive when I work the entire body as one solid and strong unit.

I'll probably give splits another shot at some point but so far it's been nearly 7 years without losing something once I start splitting things up.

You can call it sods law or law of averages :wink:. I've heard guys who think pyramid training works great, but I tried it years ago and it didn't feel right. Mainly because you either get one good set and two sets that feel so-so, or if you're lucky two good ones and one so-so set, but never three good sets, so it feels dissapointing, when you go home and feel like one hours workout, has pushed you as much as half an hour would.

Maybe it's horses for courses, or maybe pyramid training only works with horses, either way, meh :P.
