We must be tuned in on the same freq again. I have been thinking a lot about this since starting the classic challenge. Moreso, when I started working on some other routines.
Another spark that had got me thinking about some of thee aspects was the talk we had last week about shoulder training.
Then there is the Clancy Ross article where he talks abut picking 15 moves to build his entire Mr. Universe routine around. Thats 15 moves for his entire body. Some people today do that many moves for 2 body parts.
I really like the idea of this thread. I think we have gotten to the point that we have for the most part turned our back on some methods, while embracing others without really understanding, WHY.
A lot of these aspects are not just misunderstood by the everyday lifter. I read about this same aspects being pushed by the so called experts.
Deadlifts should never be done above reps of 3-5
