When I was a young athlete I had a coach swearing to do a full body program of 6 exercises, 3 days a week. That coach was a fundamentalist pretty much like Rippetoe, and you were a “pussy” if you did not do them exactly the way he told you! He hated bench pressing and we had to do very heavy bent arm pullovers instead, personally I pulled with 160 kg, pulling the bar over my face to get the scratches in my face almost like the dead lifters on their shins. Every exercise had two - three warm-up sets and one top set to failure (HIT!)
