I haven’t worked out in almost five years and don’t have the physique I used to (obviously).
I have worked out for over 20 years, so I know my way around a weight room and a lot about conventional methods of putting on muscle mass. But for educating myself on what specifically works, is true, etc., is there anywhere I can go to (websites, books, etc.) to get the Straight dope, scientifically speaking?
What I mean is, are there any sources that are more scientific than sources such as muscle mags and the usual chestnuts you’ll hear in the gym?
I am confident that I can get back into the gym and improve my physique based on what I already know regarding nutrition, reps, sets, etc., but I’d like to maximize my use of time and get the best results possible.
Sure, even the popular magazines will have this new study that says that this or that works, but I’d really like a source that is considered scientifically sound.
