Coach Sommers seems to value static feats of strength, like the iron cross, and assigns a mixture of static and dynamic drills for his progressions that utilize a small number of near maximal strength reps.
Coach Wade, on the other hand, emphasizes dynamic calisthenic feats of strength, like the one arm pullup, and assigns a mixture of dynamic and static movements that require only submaximal effort over a relatively large number of reps.
Does anyone prefer Sommers' smaller number of reps over Wade's extended sets of 20 reps or more? Which do you feel is more effective for building maximal strength with the greatest carryover to other activities?
Would it be advisable to incorporate Coach Sommers' beginning static strength holds into a strict Convict Conditioning routine?
