As soon as I read that article yesterday, I got down on the floor to test myself. The tests were easy... all 4 levels. I think all the abdominal training/programming we do, along with the OHS, snatches, C&Js and other total body movements has prepared us well. I think Nick (I believe that is the author of the article) really geared the article towards the BB guys and gals that train body parts in isolation. He even mentioned that a competitive BB could not pass Level 1, but the T-Nation editor did and made it up to Level 3.
I think the test could be valuable training exercises for those that aren't used to doing the movements we do. I also think that the exercises Coach Everett has programmed for us smoke the tests, as they are much more demanding when performed correctly and under load. In a way, we are training for the "tests". With our snatches, C&Js, squats, deadlifts, presses or whatever competitive movement we are doing, we are training the test movements. And it is way more fun doing what we do than doing set after mindless set for your upper back, mid back, lower back, upper pecs, etc, ad naseum (I know, I used to do all that nonsense). I much prefer the functional training and lifting done now. It is fun!!!
