What I mean by this is, if your training program is progressive, and hits most major body parts frequently enough, it will do the job. The real reason you're not seeing progress is that you just don't train hard enough. You are not stressing your muscles enough to 'need' to grow.

Most people tend to cheat and swing through the back and shoulders in order to move too much weight, and by doing so, you fail to engage the arms fully.

My point is this: it doesn't matter what the studies say, or that the Daily Mail is slating your choice of weight loss plan this week, what matters ultimately (and all the experts agree on this) is the best weight loss plan is the one you can stick at.
