First of all I just want to say thank you. It's refreshing to learn from someone who is obviously very knowledgable, yet very humble. I have been doing a version your layering system for months now and have set PR's on almost every lift. I just added loaded carries (1min on, 1min off for 5min) and had a couple of questions:
1) I know the weight will vary from person to person and depend on the type of carry performed, but how do you determine what is a good weight with which to start? What I have been doing is picking a weight (more on the conservative side) and adjusting from there.
2) Is it ok to use straps for DB/Trapbar carries if my focus is on load and not grip strength?
3) Assuimg the use of straps is ok what would be the best way to alternate between LC with straps and LC without straps: 1 day straps, 1 day without or 2 weeks with straps 2 weeks without?
I workout 6 days a week: day 1 SGHP from block, day 2 front squats, day 3 SDBP, day 4 SGHP from hang, day 5 SIBP, day 6 technique work or NC workout.
Thoughts/advice from anyone on their experiences are also welcome. Thanks for your time
