If anyone disagrees with that, I'm interested in what they have to say, especially BTB or Fazc.
I hear ya.

What Fazc is saying then is what I would call the concession to decreased energy (for heavy lifting). You may also be trading myofibrillar size for sarcoplasmic size...

I think BtB's real goal is to lose body fat, so Fazc may be prescribing a better approach for that, but Steve will have to understand strength may suffer...
