Hello, just a couple quick questions for the radio show:
1. For us garage gymers, what would be the best type of barbell for all around movements? Would an oly bar have too much whip for squats/deads/presses? Would power bar be too stiff for power cleans/snatches?
2. Somewhat confused about resets. Like how and when it is necessary.
Thanks brothers and sisters of iron…
I know that CFFB is not wired towards fat loss, but I was a lineman in high school mostly because I weighed 315. I now tip the scales at about 325, and I’m pretty fat. I’ve weight trained pretty seriously for the past couple of years, but I don’t just want to be strong, but fast too. I heard Jim Wendler say that the sacrifice you make to be a great powerlifter is your health. All that being said, I really do not care about abs, but I know that I am not healthy. But will following CFFB conflict with trying to become healthy? Or should I do something else? I would like to get my life together so that I can still kick ass when I am eighty. Thanks again.
