I totally agree here, IMO there is only one way to build your squat, press and dead, Do squat, press and deads and loads of it. Works on me anyhow.

People who insist that squats transfer over to deadlifts but not vice versa. It's a 2 way street.

Anyone who says that you are overtraining with a 2 hr workout...

I sure hope you're right guys (OR, Skids, Fenris). Seeing how I'm squatting, benching and deadlifting three times a week now.

Anyway, also came to add a "hell yeah" to this one:

hot baths for recovery

chiropractic manipulations for lifters
I have had profound benefit from all of these (not so much stretching though).

But, there are many variables... effectiveness of practitioners, body type, whether the modality is actually matched to the issue or even whether you really need it in the first place!

I think that came out of the occurrences of runners who would just stop running and have heart failure. Again, many variables such as prior heart condition, lifestyle, meds, etc. would factor in.

That's a good one!
