Also, if you train enough in MA, the spare time you have for lifting will make you just the right kind of bolky AKA beast!
Taking punches with your eyes closed, that's a pretty special feeling...
And to be on topic: I've never lifted much, more into the pullups, handstand stuff and all that but this thread has inspired me. Started using the bar and plates on it, that's been rusting in my garage, yesterday.
If its my theory why sohuld I feel the need to provide you evidence.. Not really into pissing contests online.
I like hearing people's differings of opinion though we all learn that way
1. No ****, No one will ever completely agree with you about everything you say.
2. i dont feel the the need to explain my theories, Hence they are mine.
3. Its a forum we did discuss and like I have said several times before Ill agree to disagree
4. As for evidence I dont feel the need to supply this every one has a different journey to the top of the mountain and take their own path no need for me to also supply maps.
Like I said agree to disagree moving on...
I have more muscle than my brother. I'm in way better shape than he is. People have different body sizes. A 5 foot frame with 100lbs of muscle on it is way different than a 6 foot frame with the same amount of muscle on it.
Your theory doesn't take the body size into consideration. It also doesn't take into consideration that your body HAS to have a certain amount of muscle on it just to get it out of the chair. So your theory would say that a body with just enough muscle to get it out of the chair would make is gas out quicker than if it had no muscle at all, thus confining it to that chair? Wrong.
The amount of muscle would most likely be related to a bell curve going from too little to too much based on that specific body's size. In which case you need more muscle to move you from the too little end of the curve and into the middle of the curve, but not too much which would move it into the too much/gas out end of the bell curve.
But then the question would be how much is too little and how much is too much? Also taking into consideration the veriables of specific body types, genetic predisposition, sport specific requirements, nutrition, and many others.
Or you could just lift and do sport specific cardio and not have to worry about it, listening to your body and adjusting your workout as you go. I'll just do that!
When you state a "theory" but have no evidence for it, and refuse to try to find evidence for it, it is simply what you "feel", thus an opinion or bias. It's fine to have one of those (people have them about everything), but don't confuse that with a "theory", especially on BS.net.
Theories aren't "pissing contests" or opinions.
Theories are ideas that can be tested and supported with data, or disproven.
