Thank you all for the responses. I guess my issues are that I forgot what I believe in? There are many roads to Rome but I guess it's important to stick on one road or else you'll be going in circles never moving any closer.
When You Don't Know What You Believe... | StrongFirst
Have a goal. It doesn't have to be a destination, and part of it can involve tinkering around the edges if that's what you want to learn. But sit down and "what direction do I want to go?"
Don't believe in anything, become agnostic. Believe in cause and effect. Follow a program. If you have to ask how to construct a program, then you aren't ready. It can be Pavel, Dan John, Wendler, Maxwell, etc - take a hard look at the program and how it works, and then follow it.
Things only become mysterious when you get down into the nitty gritty of very specific mode-driven approaches and sport specific strategies, but if you start from a macro view and slowly zoom in a great deal of it will make a lot more sense.
