Am I the only guy in the world (I am sure I am not) who thinks all Barry Sears did was split the difference between what the standard diet is (let say it is 70% CHO, 10% PRO, 20% FAT) and Atkins?

On a completely different note, I am just about done with Wrestling Physical Condition Encyclopedia and well, it is amazing to see someone (John Jess) write about training with muscle-ups, false grips, high pulls, push presses, cleans, squat and behind the neck press, and many more, doing them in high reps circuits for conditioning. Jess wrote this book in 1974.

I believe John Jess was also out of the Santa Cruz area, or somewhere very close to it. Coincidence?

The book was published by Athletic Press, Pasadena, CA. From the jacket, Jess worked at USC. So, it looks more like a LA County, valley area, then Santa Cruz. This is the area Greg Glassman grew up in.

That's a keen observation on the zone. Also, I'm sure Couch stole some ideas from Jess as well. Right before guys like Ross enaimat (sp?) and Mark Twight "stole" all of his stuff
