The Mathematical Nature of Strength Training | Mark Rippetoe
The mathematics of strength training is quite simple. The addition of small incremental increases over a sufficient amount of time increases strength. The process is linear at first, and then later the slope of the improvement curve flattens out and approaches a limit. The process is accumulative, its most important aspect. But never is the process random, nor can it be made random. After a while, when you get as strong as Glenn Gould was virtuosic, it will be complicated. Chances are you’ll never need that level of specialization in your strength training. For now, just keep it simple and get stronger, by the numbers.

Ask A Swole Woman: Pull-ups and French Fries
The real problem with “clean eating,” in my opinion, is that it’s exhausting. It is the athleisure of food taken to the extreme, in that you can only participate by eating nothing but fibrous vegetables and grain bowls and plain dry chicken breasts, so you spend your entire day chewing.

The effectiveness of exercise interventions to prevent sports injuries: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials -- Lauersen et al. 48 (11): 871 -- British Journal of Sports Medicine
Stretching did not show any protective effect (RR=0.961 (0.836–1.106)), while strength training proved highly significant (RR 0.315 (0.207–0.480)). Results from stretching and strength training studies were not heterogeneous despite different programmes were used and outcomes of interest were different. This points towards a strong generalisability of results. Proprioception training and multiple exposure programmes were also effective (RR=0.480 (0.266–0.864) and 0.625 (0.477–0.820), respectively), but results were relatively heterogeneous.
