    Gotcha. Thanks Dr.

    BTW, I realise you update the template programs or put together new ones as you see fit with the emergence of new data or changing views. Do you also factor in feedback from customers? If so, how do they usually reach out to you?

    This is definitely not true without a rack (much lighter) and I don't think most people will be able to use more weight even if they did have one.

    That said, I think they are reasonable exercises that, like other movements, confer very little unique advantages.

    For pressing, I'd do floor press, clean and press, 1-arm landmine press (or similar), dips, push-ups, etc.

    For rows, you can do pendlay rows, meadows rows, lever rows, shrugs, upright rows etc.

    For deadlifts, you can do deadlifts (conv or sumo), RDL, SLDL, snatch grip DL, high pulls, etc.
    Thanks! I appreciate the extensive list.

    That said, I do think that Strength I's programming is well-suited to your goals, yes.
    Hehe. I was trying to be funny by using the more amusing abbreviation for SBD and (military) press.

    I was wondering how to structure training for the next 3 weeks or so with only a barbell and plates. My aim is to develop low rep (1-5) strength performance in BDSM within the next few months, so would it make sense to use the set/rep scheme in Strength 1 (which I plan to run afterwards) with substitute exercises or would you go about it in a different way?

    Thanks.
