I meant that both ROP and S&S are minimalist.Sorry can you clarify - do you mean you think ROP is minimalist or that S&S is not minimalist?
And that non-minimalist training will lead to much better results in absolute terms (i.e. more strength, hypertrophy, and/ conditioning).
Individual situations will of course vary. If you live a super busy life with young kids and a career etc, as I do, you may have no other choice but minimalism. Just don't kid yourself that the results will be anywhere near as good if you ran more well rounded programs.
I stress I'm talking in absolute terms. If you only want to be a bit strong and a bit conditioned, you wouldn't run a 6 day per week PL program, for example.
