It reported significant (look up the us of the word ‘significant as it pertains to statistics) correlations that are well documented in the reference list (look that up too). How was it shitty? How were the articles, including those from respected scientists like Stone, who you’ve referenced before yourself, shitty? Oh, because they don’t support YOUR position.
Respected scientists? Let’s just say your definition of respected scientist and mine are different and this work is far from scientific in any regards.
Sadly, you have confused what I said once again. Never did I say the differences were statistically insignificant, I said the differences themselves were small and not relevant in the discussion. There could be a 1lb difference in bench maxes and it could be statistically significant in a large enough sample, but that doesn’t mean it is significant when analyzing performance and none of the statistics (in horribly designed studies, mind you) showed that max strength accounts for any great deal of the significance in sprint speed among trained athletes.
]I never said anything about max strength dominance, liar, I said it was an important variable relating to performance, even though max strength was not developed to the extent it could be, but it was still statistically significant to performance.
Sure, statistically significant, but still small by sporting standards and could easily be increased with little effort. You’re telling me that the ~30lb average difference in bench press between a Division 3 player and a Division 1 player accounts for even 1% of the variation in skill level and football playing ability? C’mon son…. Get out of here with that shit. As I said, the study didn’t even consider LBM, which is going to be way more important for football than just some numbers anyway. Great scientists though, lawl.
]Jeremy is a world class sprinter. That is one of the stupidest arguments that could possibly be made, and shows your incredibly ridiculous reliance on anecdotal bullshite even when statistical significance has been demonstrated by several authors studing several different populations of athletes. The correlations are there. I knew that to be the case long before I read that paper. So would anyone that didn’t have an extreme case of ‘Little Man’s Disease’. Take a statistics class.
Anecdotal? A world class sprinter that has strength levels lower than that of many HS girls…. And you want to try to convince people that training for max strength is going to have great significance on their sprint performance? None of the studies showed a damn thing regarding sprint speed and max strength.
