I think McRobert's stuff is sensible, but he is reeeeeally preeeeeachy about the whole "if you make gains on a non-abbreviated program, you must have either FREAKISH GENETICS or be a STEROID USER!" thing. I mean, most people understand that guys like Ronnie Coleman and Dorian Yates have fantastic genes and 5-figure-a-month supplementation programs. No need to shriek about it on every other page.
McRobert pushes the "pity the poor HARDGAINER" line heavily, and discounts the hard work that non-"hardgainers" put in. "You're just not cursed with sub-average GENETICS!" *Most* people can make *significant* gains just by cleaning up their diets and working hard at any program. Most people won't look like Dorian, but most people don't want to. Eat clean, work out hard and consistently, and you'll make gains. They just won't be Olympia-level gains. There are very few people I've ever run into who are true "hardgainers," i.e., they can eat like a horse and train consistently and still look like beanpoles.
Like I said, I like his stuff, the shrill tone just gets old. But then again, I'm not cursed with sub-average GENETICS!
