    We were tagged in this on Twitter. He decided he was going to invoke Bill Starr to peddle this horse shit and, in some cases, just make stuff up.

    I'd like to invite Dr. Cortes to post the link to an interview with Bill Starr where he "said" anything at all. I spent a lot of time with the man, and he never said this to me, and I don't recall him doing an interview.

    The “Doc” does have some great advice for women:

    This one is choice.

    Five reps does not build muscle, it only fatigues the nervous system. It is NOT the ULTIMATE program. Ok?

    Funny how even in the book, Starr recommends incline bench as an assistance exercise essentially. He says if you have access to an incline bench, then the thing to do is to use it as a medium day pressing movement. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? What he does NOT say is that if you have an incline bench you can just forget about the bench press altogether. Why's this guy invoking Starr if he's so against using sets of 5 anyway?

    Out of curiosity I had a look for articles by Starr. He didn’t say incline bench was better, he said that it was better for shoulder girdle development and therefore might be better for Olympic weight lifers (something about bench causing jerky lifting patterns due to muscle development in specific areas) and those who had dodgy shoulders. It was apparently easier to sell incline than it was either bench, or press due to the prevailing consensus at the time that bench, press and even squats were not beneficial to athletes joints.

    That's the reason I seldom click to web pages or youtube videos. There's enough stupid stuff out there without me giving support.

    Had to look, couldn’t help it while I waited for my kids practice to end.

    I could not find where he earned his ‘Dr.” want to know so that I won’t send my kids there.
