Barry, someone asked why you stress the deadlift. I posted what I recalled (from skimming).
What is quoted below is from the article "The Holy Grail In Speed Training" on your site.
"The deadlift wasn't a favorite in our eyes either until we noticed an interesting and powerfully motivating fact: World and European power lifting records show that the deadlift and the squat records are within 10% or less of each other across all weight classes, both for men and women. Yet the deadlift works a significantly greater percentage of the muscles and involves multiple joints; why waste time and energy on squats or leg press machines? [b]Realizing the efficiency of the deadlift led to the complete restructuring of our strength workout.[/b]"
That's pretty close to what I said (including the 10% figure). I was an IPF powerlifter for many years. To my standard the deadlift cannot be learned in a few sessions. If what I surmised from your site wasn't accurate you could simply elaborate, you don't need to tell me I have a serious problem etc.
Nice try Richard, but no cigar.
Where did I say the deadlift was easier to learn so that's why I chose it? Look at your quote from my article. Does efficiency mean "easier to learn"?
The basis of you're response came from your guessing of what I meant. Since you still didn't own up to what you said then I posted what I should have posted.
