Well, then...since you asked!

Just joking.

My 2 cents is this...I read that thread over at Wannabebig. I don't think most of those guys took a serious look at exactly what was going on with C&P. Sure, lifting heavy things is dangerous. With that said, I've never had a lifting related injury other then tendinitis in my life.

We all have to lift within our limits. I have spotty shoulders from my years of playing baseball (or doing 12 ounce curls - take your pick). If I do too many heavy sets of high box squats, I really strain the crap out of my shoulders and biceps. So I don't train like that.

But I have trained with board presses and heavy bench partials, and they give me no grief.

Every time I see C&P training I'm reminded of Doug Hepburn. Doug was a multiple set, low rep, heavy weight guy. I think he turned out ok.

Is C&P for everyone? No. But we all can learn from Jamie's thinking...and that, more then anything...I find invaluable in this day and age of everyone labeling themselves as a hardgainer after 3 weeks of training.
