I've said this twice in 2 days, but here I go again: See my signature below.
I know for myself, if I could go back in time and focus on getting stronger on the basic lifts I would have saved myself a lot of time. It's funny, that now after years of training, I have become much more focused on increasing strength. Why is this? Because it works. I get stronger and I build more muscle.
Do I go through periods throughout the year where I am not actually "strength training" or "power building"? Sure i do!!!
But the bottom line is that having a solid strength foundation is beneficial whether you want to body build, power lift, or just be in good shape.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.
