Haha, blunt but true.

In my opinion, genuine, functional, applicable size and strength can only be gained by squatting, deadlifting, and pressing...HEAVY (relatively)! Now, that's not to say that getting out in a park and doing chin-ups and bear crawls and what have you doesn't have its place, because it does (!), but if you're interested in getting stronger, stronger than your typical caveman, then you'd best start branching out from BBS. Again, I'm coming from a position of ignorance, this opinion is based entirely off of skimming BBS and comparing my own levels of strength and size to those of you who have employed its methods.
I began this Primal journey on December 30th, 2009 and in that time I've lost over 125 LBS.
