why CF do the backextension? and the Romanian DL, barbellrows are not functional??? I've never seen them in WODs. Why?
It seems to me that Rippetoe always supports his statements with some pretty good information. Why did he state that the back extension was not functional?
If nothing else, I can't imagine that the additional support about the spine in some way aids a weightlifter in being strong with weight overhead.
