1) Weak point training doesn't work if you're piss weak everywhere.
2) Heavy singles on rotating lifts put unneccesary strain on the joints, which can be avoided simply by rotating reps on the contested lifts.
3) The best raw and single ply lifters still do more traditional lifting. WSB is predominantly an american and internet phenomenom. It's a fad for most people and nothing more, just like HIT was 20 years ago, just like HG was after that.
4) Nothing beats basic work on the contested lifts. The genuinely strongest that ever lived, Coan, Confessore, Kazmaeir, Karworski, Hepburn, Anderson all got to where they were with heavy lifting on the contested lifts, cycled with poundage/reps and volume. Just because WSB is in fashion now doesn't mean it can discount what worked for those guys who were genuinely strong; not suited and pinned to the gills strong, but genuinely strong.
5) Pinning a fat guy with as many steroids as you can lay your hands on, while slingshotting aforementioned fat guy into a supertight triple ply suit. Then getting a contraption to walk the bar out for him, and the suit to do most of the lifting for him and then getting a judge to actually pass this travesty to the sport....
... is not everyones idea of being super strong.
