    Powerlifting Routine.

    Err, yeah. I'm looking to start a routine that incorporates all 3 lifts - most routines I have seen neglect one lift to one degree or another. Any general directions on this one?

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Thanks Sensei, the Dinosaur training split is just the ticket.
