that is so true...happened to me...then i saw the light and started to squat, DL, B press, press etc.....and guess what? it worked!

also, these studies aren t new, in fact they have been around for quite a while. if this was the best way to build strength i m sure lots of PLs and Strong men would be doing it....but it seems they aren't! there must be something about those squats!
i supose what might work is doing squats and then do preacher curls....but thats for someone else to find out i m gonna stick to picking stuff up and putting stuff overhead.
Dan John said it quite nicely: you need to be able to pick it up, carry it and put it back down again...train like it! wise words!
