So many "experts" have dogmatic, narrow-minded opinions about training and there are so many conflicting opinions out there, that it's very easy to get overwhelmed and confused. The most important thing you can do is to avoid paralysis by analysis and just get your butt in the gym, working out consistently. Go into the gym with a goal, an intelligent plan and a pre-determined, written weekly schedule. Then gather feedback, record your progress and don't be afraid to fine-tune your program as you go (based only on your results, not on the fad of the day).
Never let yourself get caught up in the arguments about which training method is the best, because there is no single best way train. Just get started, use meticulous progressive overload, and don't ever stop. Action is always superior to analysis. Legendary bodybuilder Dave Draper put it best; "You guys can argue about training theories all you want... I'll be in the gym It's leg day."
