I've said if before and will say it again. People try to over analyze training. Go to the gym lift heavy weights and you will get stronger with proper diet and nutrition. Do you need to do 100 pushups before bench pressing? NO. Can you optimize training gains by "tweeking" what works for you??? Yes. Basically, if you want to get stronger at any lift is, load the bar, for that lift. 'Nuff said.
"I can't wait 'til tomorrow, 'cause I get stronger every day!"
