Any distance longer than 100m seems too far to me...not fond of running!

Just as a point of clarification: The original statement from Coach Glassman was (paraphrasing here) hitting the DL~1x/week amidst general training, typically at high heart rate and only pulling max efforts a few times each year.

He provided a bracket of 500-750 lbs which has caused some incredulity among many folks. On that topic I saw a specific individual pull a 695x2 DL like it had helium in it. This guy is not your average schlep...but that is where THAT claim came from.

I have certainly benefited from high rep OL's, can't say I've seen direct effects of KB's although I've never delved into them exclusively for that long.

Interesting topic.
