Bro-science highlights
 
Share the most nonsensical/ridiculous thing you've ever heard in the fitness world? Extra points for explaining the concept as much as is possible through the eyes of whatever bonehead said or wrote it.

Pretty much anything that ignores the fact that genetics plays a far larger role in poor progress than bad training methods.

Most people who suck in the gym just simply suck. Even somebody with slightly above average genetics may do alright on a bad program, so long as they are committed to it. A good program will help, perhaps, but only minimally, for people with below average potential

Anything that ignores the above is basically bro science.

You know if you're any good in the gym when the crappy program you started off with wasn't being too unkind to you in terms of outcomes

The dumbest one I heard that has stuck around is the no carbs after 5pm thing. Broprofessors say that basically carbs late in the day don't get used and basically get turned into fat (lol).

Also extremely stupid is the muscle confusion notion. The notion that your muscle get used to your workout and gains slow way down or to a halt so have to mix it up to start them gainz going (even more lol).

It's a good way to keep guys from being idiots with late night eating. "Got to finish this tub of Ben & Jerry's to stay anabolic while I sleep tonight, bro." Dante has always preached no carbs after a certain time.
