I trained ‘westside’ for several year and had great success w/ my strength gains but put on a good bit of extra body fat. Since switching to CFFB my strength gains have remained good (slowed but good) and I’m burning a ton of body fat. I was just wondering if it would be possible/beneficial to combine some ‘westside’ methodology w/ the CFFB program” –AJ
Dave S asks:
As always great work on the CFFB site and the Pod Casts. 2 in one week last week! Can you explain the physiology of why attempting to reach your chin over the bar during chin ups or pull-ups can negatively impact your on field performance? And your other lifts?
I know you mentioned lots of people come into your gyms and have this problem.
Thanks, keep up the good work
