if you're still chokin them out, then i wouldn't worry too much about how much better their snatch is. that's just me though

if they're better in both categories, then you should slash their tires.

Kevin Scott - same one that used to train at Saunders BJJ? Seems familiar?

As I've trained for training sake and for competitions throughout the years I am only now figuring out what is working best and getting the results I want. The first step ( in my opinion) would be to assess yourself (or have a professional asses you) to find out where your strengths and weaknesses are. Once you know that then you can figure out what your initial priorities are for your training. It's never an all or nothing scenario. EX: prioritize strength for a set period of time so that your power can in turn increase... I think template programs have a place and are benefit but for the best gains possible everything must be based off the individual since we are all so unique.
Glad I found this forum! Oh yeah Robb, paleo is working great for me!

I wanted to do that but I just couldn't understand his programming. Maybe I'm just not smart enough or maybe it's poorly laid out but a sample program would've been awesomesauce.
