Great stuff...I particularly like this statement:

"Before we get into the actual exercise prescription, I should point out that I still believe that maximal strength levels should be achieved prior to endurance or energy system development. My theory is this: when we are talking about endurance – we are talking about power endurance or speed endurance or strength endurance. If we haven’t built up appreciable levels of power, speed or strength, then what the hell are we trying to endure? A low level of power? A low level of speed?"

Or as Vern Gambetta has stated...

Strength BEFORE strength endurance

Believe it or not, I remember seeing this workout in a Muscle and Fitness magazine five years ago or so. Go figure.
