I just wanted to clear that up. I think many people indoctrinated into the Rippetoe Roger Rabbit method (you know, where you drop a refrigerator on your head over and over) can probably benefit from taking some time to un-learn/re-learn.
That's kind of what I was planning on.. I'm taking this week off, but next week I'm just going to spend some time with the lifts and attempt to make it look like I have any idea what I'm doing. I've got a lot to learn still about actually putting a strength program together, but right now I'm swamped with schoolwork and will get to that in a few days.
