Hello sir powerlifters
I am just curious of one thing. I wonder how many of you iron freak do deadlift once a week or more(ouch). I personnaly use It once a week and at 181, my best is around 550 and I trained It hard for only 12 weeks. I conclude that my “way” (read Ian King way) is not out off the corner. I also understand others and why they don’t use the deadlift on a regular basis.
I recall Dave Tate once said that there are people just born to deadlift (read long arms) and that the deadlift will have less bad effect on those people.
Westside is a powerfull way, my only concern with there method is that It may lead to long term imbalance(but with fucking huge progress). The way I view this I conterbalance every exercices by an oposite one for example bench press and bent-over row, If I have an individual who is already balanced then I apply the same volume, try to put the same intensity and vary the priority in the week.
But the first time I see Westside I saw that results they have may be more because of max effort day than dynamic work. Metal militia method work extremely well and are not soo far from the Ian King methods. Compensatory acceleration used on both heavy and light weigth, since heavy weigth is what is absolutly necessary to gain strength, then why do the former light stuff if metal militia had better results, even If I have a HUGE respect for people like George Halbert and his awesome performance, is there a better way?
I am open minded and I would like to know your view and you reactions based on what you had read on my message.
Thanks in advance
