This was posted by DGabe in the Louie Simmons thread but since it wasn't a question for Lou, I moved it here so you guys can discuss it.
Where is the line drawn between Raw and Equipped training? By this I mean, what exercises would be more geared(no pun) toward someone lifting equipped, and which are more beneficial for the raw lifter.
I know guys with shirts have much less trouble getting out of the hole and focus on lockout strength..etc.
Another example would be box squats which are really tough on the hips and many raw lifters can easily overtrain because of not having briefs.
As a raw bencher (for now) I focus on floor presses, pin presses, to help my strength off my chest. What other exercises are recommended for raw lifters?
So basically, are there any major variations that are made for raw lifters vs equipped?
