    This smells like a rhetorical question, but I'll play along. The canned answer is it depends on your goals. If all you want is to punch holes in paper, then complicating your range session with kb...

    I am enjoying this discussion, and there is a lot of good information, but I don't think we have asked why we have to pick just one? Why not squat AND DL? Like Dan John mentions, most people stick...

    That's a pretty good summary, but I would plan on waving your loads. Check out the section on Thorolf to see a good example. The concept is similar to ETK, if you have done that before.

    1) If you have to ask, you know the answer is "NO!"
    2) Read your post out loud. Embarrassed? Good.
    3) Don't fall for that trick-nology ever again.
    4) Go work out.

    There is more than one way to skin this cat. You can GTG to get over 30 total reps throughout the day (increasing volume by decreasing density). If you are super-setting C&P with pull ups, cut out...

    Sorry to say, but cheap bells with the removable rubber bottom are easy to unbolt. Just replace the stock bolt with a longer one from the hardware store + ample washer + rubber bottom + plates.
