Hey ladies and gents.
I'm new to this site,but not new to training.
I've been living between two worlds (crossfit without kipping - and power lifting) trying to figure out what I want to focus on. Up till now I have been doing Bill Starr's "big 3" for 2-3 months and then switching to crossfit-ish training, when I got bored.
Now it has been decided! I want to lift heavy things! I've ended up with the Texas Method. I'm using the method as a template and I have made some small changes.
Since I have no experience with the Texas Method I would love some inputs! both good and bad is welcome!
