I couldn't agree more!Thanks guys.
BradCR-- I think there is a bi9g difference between strength endurance and maximal strength. And, while there may be some carry-over from one to the other, you definetly need to practice whichever you are trying to improve.
I disagree with you Brad. In fact, I think SS has the 2 most imprtant pulling exercises.Actually, I'm not sure why those aren't in the standard program--no pulling at all?--and two pushing movements? I might have to search his forum's archives for an answer to this.
