I really liked the book as an inspirational "Work hard consistently on the basics to make progress" thing. The book is great for the cardio bunny/mullet trying to get into the real strength world, but if you have read a lot of the other stuff out there, this book is rehash of the basics. The interesting thing is his huge advocation of rack work. Like bottom position squats and deads.

I loved doing the rack work as I felt like the hulk maxing out every session doing bottom-up squats and benching. But really, I didn't get very far, and it had zero carryover to either. Best advice here is to read this for the "stick to the basics!" and go hard and heavy. But use the other training routines he lists like 5x5 and 5/4/3/2/1. Very few people have success on hitting max singles. If we all could progress like that, all we would have to do is enter a meet every week and max.

I've always had an interest in trying rack work, especially with squats. I would love to try progressively lowering the pins with a heavy weight over a 10-16 week period, or longer.

I wanted to try and do that too. But almost every other forum I looked around on basically said that this wouldn't really have any carryover.

Bud Jeffries has a whole book on this though, and says it is what got him his 1000lb rack squat.

The information regarding this is so contradictory it's not even funny. Anderson, Jeffries, and Brooks say this works. Everyone else says it really doesn't.

Like so much of everything else in this industry.

Some days I want to dig a hold in my back yard to find out.
