Hey Guys,
God this is fun. So if I am reading this thing right B Mac is engaging in the same sort of self-promoting, unfounded, unproven hyperbole as Glassman. How is it that a person can be so delusional as to ignore all evidence to the contrary, even ignoring their own experience, and continue down the same path? Maybe T. Bud has a contender for the throne.

The ability to be massively self-delusional seems to go in hand with the ability to go out there and subject the gullible to your self-delusions.

This explains everything.

How else am I going to wipe my ass after taking a shit without doing a tricep extension or tricep kickback? THESE ARE FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS
Do I just asian squat and monkey scoop with both hands?
Now that I think about it, toilets aren't paleolithic either.
The curl is so underrated it's ridiculous. Look up how throwers (track and highland) use power curls to improve their throws. Anyone who has ever moved loaded boxes has curled. Anyone who walks up stairs and opens doors while carrying groceries curls. I mean, jesus christ, your biceps are there for a reason. They do real, applicable work, both in life and on the field. And their recovery demands are so low that it's easy to get a few sets in per week and get stronger at the movement without interfering with the big stuff.

True, it's never really a limiting factor in these endeavors, but since I started curling, it's sure a lot easier to bring in groceries.

And for what it's worth, I'm not sure there's a less functional movement than the snatch. No one ever puts a load overhead, such as a bag of rice or a bucket of water or a kid who wants a ride, without a press or a jerk portion.

I snatch my two year-old all the time. Thankfully I have only slammed him into a light fixture a couple of times.
