The Party is always right. The Party is right now, and The Party was right before. Be a good little comrade and do not question The Party, only listen and lift.It doesn't bother me at all because I do my own thing. But your comment (which I know was half kidding) about anything over 5 being cardio would've been ridiculed by the Party 10 years ago.
In short, I don't think you've taken crazy pills, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that SF has deviated far from the original RKC book. I think what you are observing is an over-presription of the tenets of SF, without always looking at the nuances that Pavel's work normally mentions.The will to a system is a lack of integrity.
I mean hopefully the thread doesn't make anyone feel uncomfortable 0_o Sometimes threads take their own path, for the benefit of everyone.Hope this puts an end to this thread as it has taken a turn or two away from my original intention (rep speed experiences).
Stay strong all!
I agree. Saying "I want to be able to do lots of pull-ups just because" is completely open-ended and you could approach programming in many different ways with little (if any) constraints. In that case I would also lean towards just getting stronger.If I wanted to do for high reps in pull-ups or push-ups or whatever, I would absolutely think that I would have to train high reps in the exercises in question. But, and the big but, comes when I ask when I should train them in high reps. If I have a goal I have to reach absolutely tomorrow or at the worst a day after, it's specificity, specificity, specificity. But... when it comes to "I'd like to be able to do it some day", I'll always go for being strong first. Strong first.
Very true.Its when people attribute all manner of cross-over/non specific benefits that not everyone experiences, the feathers start to fly.
