I would first like to take the other posters for gathering all those beginner articles because that was very valuable to me. Having read through at least 3/4 of them to help set my goals, I know find myself stuck on how to design a program.
I read through Christian Thibaudeau’s How do Design a Damn Good Program and found myself wanting to start there. But looking through the list of exercises, I was not sure which were pulls and which were pushes and which would be considered horizontal pushes and pulls and which vertical push and pulls. It would really be great if someone tell me how to distinguish between the two!
