I've heard mentioned before (I think it was Poliquin who might have mentioned it), that until you've put on a bit of solid mass, and gotten to a fair level of strentgth, you should stick with core lifts? What are everyones thoughts on this? The info is for me, i'm 6' around a buck sixty (the most I've ever weighed was 170Lbs) and my heaviest lifts for the bench, squat, and deadlift are 185lbs, 190lbs, and 225lbs, respectively. (these are however not 1RM's, they're 2-4RM's. Now I've tried a variety of programs (Ian Kings, limping and super strength, etc.) but I've never spent a long (3-6 mnth period) spent doing strictly the big lifts. Shit this is getting long winded. Does anybody know where I'm going with this? What do you think of spending a good portion of say a year, doing mainly just those big lifts, until I've reached an appreciable level of strength, and mass. Phew. Is that what poliquin was/is trying to say. What do you all think?
Thanks in advance.
