Well, if someone were to follow this way of training from the ground up....say they started with Rippletoe's Starting Strength as a beginner then they went to intermediate programs based on weekly progression and when they couldn't do that anymore they went to longer loading periods:
The Starting Strength "program" should be the greatest strength gains they will ever achieve in one program. Likewise a beginner/intermediate like the one everyone does here should be the second most succesful. If your training is progressive in that way and one phase builds on another than as you go along, IF your really do it correctly, absolute strenght "gains" are going to get smaller. Your are simply getting closer to your top ability and so it gets harder and harder to progress.
ALL of these programs are uniquely qualified to give a person mass and strength but they have to be viewed as a process. If one program seems to be more successful than another it is NOT the program it's the user. Behavior. Loading to aggresively. Starting too heavy. You name it. Not one of these programs is in any way superior to any other. That is not the way it works. If your say one is better than you have to ask: Better for who?
This is the number one thing that I personally what people to see when they get into this. Always use the simplest way available. Always. Don't get into more complicated programming until it is necessary, and then only complicate it to the point necessary. If your skip to more complicated means too early then you are slowing down your gains.
I just want to make this clear because this is so many people's down fall, mine included when I started, looking for the 'best' or 'superior' program, leading them to complicated messes.
