Computer scientist / programmer / statistician / fitness enthusiast. Some of those are hobbies some are work, but the line between those is constantly blurry.

Applies the scientific method to everything from code to cooking to curls to cubes.

comment Unexplained constant weight gain
6kg in 2 weeks is outside of normal weight creep that I'd recommend seeing a doctor. Its probably nothing and as soon as your start tracking a(and reducing) your calories your weight will stabilise.

comment Why do so many fitness websites still reference somatotypes?
@RoryAlsop That question shows a link between body composition and personality, but offers no evidence that someone is "born mesomorphic".

Whats your goal? Honestly, unless you are a professional athlete nutrition timing is much less important that consistency in your diet and exercise regime.

comment Advice for training biceps?
Its really hard to separate them both and attempts at 'optimal rep ranges' for size, especially in untrained lifters is broscience. But in essence, to get bigger or stronger you need to lift bigger.

comment Are situps actually harmful?
No, they don't there is one paper (that was targeted to Chiropractors), but none of his books and very few of his papers mention "chiropractor" in the title. You have an unhealthy level of scepticism.

comment Are situps actually harmful?
Wow bro, do you even logic? Broscience is based on brologic, which revolves around the ultimate question - "do you even lift bro?". The key proof in Brologic is "Brost hoc ergo bropter hoc", which states that "if they look like they lift, they must know about lifting". Since Bret is huge, and looks like he lifts, he's must know about lifting. Now, just as formal logic and boolean logic are not mutually exclusive, neither is brologic, so there may be other methods of proving Brets credentials. I chose the most efficient method.
