I'm actually a strongman wannabe more than both of those :glasses2: And from what I've noticed they tend to stick with the simpler something is, the better it is for you. That's why you'll see them picking up heavy rocks in their backyard while the bodybuilders are shooting drugs into their ass and doing their 50th set of kickbacks. Simple but effective, and is a lot better for you overall than bodybuilding. Good to see that this helped show where I was coming from a bit better too.
To be honest, I think I probably suffered a bit from my general predjudice about body-builders or powerlifters. I give you mad props for what you've accomplished on that front and in my experience, nearly everyone who has put that much time and energy into pure strength development has a STRONG tendency to sort of place disproportionate emphasis on how various muscle groups work together.
