I'm saying they aren't necessary until a solid strength base is built. Dr. Ken used to say that a Squat, Row, and Bench could get you 85% of the way to your potential.


Right I see.

That makes sense, didn't really think of it before.


So if those exercises can get you 85% of the way, I assume just the 5 sets would be enough for each in terms of volume?

I think Iv'e over estimated the amount of volume needed to have a successful workout.
