But if PE could be supported formally by science (histology, for example), it could maximize the gains and reduce the risks, time and effort to achieve the same (or better) results.
In the past, that was my argument exactly…but I’m not so sure. Science might help refine a few points: workout duration, load, frequency; heating temps, times; stretching tension, times, etc. But there aren’t so many variables that “Science” would be required to maximize the realization of potential thereof.
We’re either just squeezing or stretching our dicks. I believe that genetics play the greatest role in determining results. I don’t think if matters if Johns Hopkins or Harvard Med gets involved.
