How much control do we have over strength and hypertrophy outcomes? Here’s what we know about the relationship between genetics and strength training.
The lats are “pull muscles,” and the bench press is a push. Why did people start emphasizing the lats for bench, and is their importance overstated?
Some lifters relish the pain of DOMS (or delayed onset muscle soreness) as an indicator of success, but is that really the case?
It’s impossible to know exactly how much muscle someone can build drug-free, so we approached this problem probabilistically, using published data and a fair amount of math to see how much extra muscle steroids help you build, and to estimate the probability that someone is drug-free based on their degree of muscularity.

This is a bench press tweak you should know about. Learn how to optimize your bar path for a bigger bench. It makes a bigger difference than you realize.
Cuing sitting back vs. down in the squat may change how the squat looks, but muscular demands are pretty similar through the range of motion that overlaps.
Are any of the ways we can measure training volume actually causative (or at least strongly predictive) of muscle growth?
Active imagery (or visualization) DOES have a role in building strong lifts. Here’s what it is and how to implement it.
