    Honestly, what do you know of competitive powerfiting or advanced lifter training programs? You are wonderfully out of your depth.

    yes, this thinking/idea meant for full ROM exercises I'm sure. . . . TUT, etc comes into play.

    "The current meta?" Do you play Hearthstone or something? Where are you getting that term from? (forget that you have no idea what the current "meta" is in powerlifting anyways, I'm just curious about your use of the word).

    But how will this affect your half-ROM leg-press performance? You must program for all the tetas, I mean metas-variants, my son.

    I have played a lot of Starcraft 2 and a decent amount of League of Legends lol. The current "meta" is a collection of strategies that are accepted as strong ways of playing the game.

    Honestly, I don't know. I've never trained for that level of ability. But what I also know, neither have you.

    starting strength coach development program
    Our flag team has organized a game against another team, whom we beat in the last tournament (without me), on Sunday. It's nothing serious and I plan to play as WR and CB to test myself out. My team captain Mike is looking forward to seeing how I'll perform and knows about my training.
