These are examples of questions and even a complete stackexchange built around "here's how I'm doing it; what's a better way?"
It seem's that since the user has already come up with a potential solution, that there was research done.
So I don't think these types of questions are off-topic for the stackexchange network just because of their form or because they are evidence of lack of research.
About this site specifically:
Here's an example of a good question. The user presented two programs they were considering, and asked for a recommendation about which one to choose, where the only difference between the two was scheduling of the exercises.
Here's another good question. The user presented a program, stated their goals, in the comments, the user said what they were unsatisfied about in their current program.
However, if they're asking for an overly broad evaluation, including nutrition, supplements, exercise selection, scheduling, you'll get answers that are essays, prescribing entire ways of living, and are very specific to the individual question.
Here's another poor program feedback question. This question drew poor answers because the stated goal was overly broad.
Program feedback questions are okay if they:
- state a goal,
- present the user's current program,
- say why they believe their current program is inadequate, and
- are narrowly tailored to receive feedback about a particular aspect of training (nutrition, exercise selection, scheduling, rep range, rest, etc.)
