I have to agree here, also moore is correct on the whole you cant learn by reading thing, i never was able to grasp many things in regards to lifting until i experienced it, but i also read everything i can get my hands on in regards to lifting, and then use what knowledge i gained to formulate a new hypothesis if you will
