Understand Like i stated I am very familiar with him as I stated I have read and used several of his methods as part of my strongman period over 15 years ago. So im letting you know trying to sell me on his merits is just a waist of your time since my issue with him has less to do with his approach but other factors.
Have you read his original book?
Its great you feel the need to defend your favorite author and that is great. I was just simply stating my opinion regarding his approach for someone interested in competing in Strongman or power lifting from my experience.( For clarification Ive been doing either Bodybuilding and or strength related training on and off since my mid teens im 45 now )Which the Op did ask about.... Am I saying his approach is crap ? Not at all.
NO BODY CAN FIND THEM!! Nor any competitive Deadlift numbers! FYI I competed in the same Fed he did maybe not at the same time and Ive asked around.
Working man ? Ive worked blue collar all my life a large % farming doing manual labor and the past 17 years working in a foundry environment. Besides what does Kubik know about the working man? Unless he changed careers since he published his book he was a Lawyer. To be honest a two time a week template of 5/3/1 is just as effective.
Um if he has a condition that prevents him from Powerlifting not seeing how the hell he can do O-lifting since it is in reality is more difficult.
What do you consider a typical powerlifting program ? Are you talking about a actual program to gear one for a meet or just general strength training? Sine for some reason people people want to lump getting stronger as "powerlifting"
Clarification... I want to make it clear I am not attacking you as a person. Im simply stating my opinion and my point of view. Since its almost impossible to have opposing view point online without someone getting bent out of shape and taking it personal.
So I will apologies if my post comes across as rude or me coming across as a horses ass.
