Hard pills for some meatheads to swallow when it comes to hypertrophy - - The "big compounds" with barbells aren't optimal - Squats, bench presses, and deadlifts aren't required - In fact there are no "must do" lifts - "Worked for Ronnie/Arnold/Jay " isn't a valid argument

Another thing is people make routines to complicated or do too much. I try to keep my routine simple, with fewer types of lifts but specific targeting.

I injured my lower back a few months ago and wasn’t able to do compound lifts for a while. So I switched to an all-machine workout. I still achieved good gains. I’m drug free.

All training is opportunity cost - you don't know what would have happened if you'd trained differently.

Amen. Especially when considering the time investment and improper technique for most people. Leg press and leg machines all day for general population.

pushups and chinups (and their variations) are exceptionally effective and can be done literally whenever youre not too sore from the last set

Chin ups are a good movement but push ups are not ideal for hypertrophy.
