Interesting that people don't seem to be satisfied using the classic lifts as their primary strength building tool. I wonder why this is.
Is it because the quick lifts are too leg dominant? Is it the simultaneous strength and power demands of them? I wonder.
I guess there are areas that the classic lifts don't emphasize, but for my money, the lifts and the accessories - pulls, squats, presses, OHS, deadlifts, and their variations offer a good full body strengthening. Plus, they are super fun to do.
I am still enjoying the high from two PR's last night (81kg snatch and 97.5 C&J) so it might be influencing my thoughts, but why anyone wouldn't want to fling the heaviest possible weight over their head I can't imagine!
