Counter Argument) that says if you test movements you will only perform the ones you are good at, and that you will have to perform x movement if you want to get better at x movements. Well, the fact that in order to do get better at something you have to actually do that particular something should not strike any of us as particularly odd. And second, how the hell do you define good at something when it comes to lifting a weight? Is my 400plus pound deadlift comparable to someone else's 600lb deadlift? When I have pulled one or two muscles deadlifting and the 600lb deadlifter might have had hosts of other injuries to speak of deadlifting? I am not sure. But according to my training log, I am pretty decent at kettlebell military pressing. I also know that if I bench press on a Monday, my military press will test like shit on Tuesday, and if you look at my training logs, you will note that some Tuesdays I did not do military presses for that reason. So, there goes the idea that you will do only what you are good at. The same Counter Argument also did not take into account the idea that they should not have done those movements since they did not test better.
I think that in order for Adam Glass to offer a double money back guarantee AND let you keep the DVD of Grip and Rip 2.1, there must be something to it. I can attest that it works. I spent some money and Adam turned a 30 minute phone call into a long discussion about biomechanics, testing movements and what have you. That's the sign of a guy who gives a fuck.
Personally, in the stress of being dumped, readying myself to move again, not eating much, wondering when the fuck someone will realize that they should hire me to teach at a private school because I possess large amounts of awesome, I am still having great training days. The rest of the shit going on is not negatively impacting what will test well, and what will not test well. As of late, PRing and watching old seasons of Married with Children give me the absolute MOST enjoyment and happiness out of my life.
