One thing I LOVE about Strong First is that they are not afraid to say they have changed their mind and improved their methods. Some people are afraid to admit that the stuff they said before wasn't as good as it could have been.And I think, as someone who did some of the Rite of Passage program not long after the book came out (met the press but not quite the snatches), I think that it would have been a lot easier if I had something like the Simple standard under my belt, rather than the comparatively much shorter time on the Program Minimum.
Anyhow, S&S does it for me, and I can clean and press quite well anyhow as S&S covers a lot of the same movements and muscles. If I didn't have any heavier weights than 24kg I'd definitely be doing ROP instead of S&S since ROP works with the lighter weight better.
