The same principle applies on the ticket writing. Though sometimes it sucks to be the IRS rep.
Can you think of any instance that it shouldn't suck to be an IRS rep? I mean... they're IRS reps!

Having said that I'm a huge fan of barbell biased training and think everyone should lift heavy at least 2x/week. In your case I would first work on nutrition. There's a ton of info floating around out there, start with Paleo, learn about the Zone, dial it in from there.
I'll post more later about periodizing your weaknesses. I'd start with gymnastics, barbell train cause you should be doing that anyway, and absolutely dial in your nutrition.
I would think that it depends on the individual- moving from a 500lb to a 550lb deadlift will almost certainly not help you knock out 95lb thrusters faster. Moving from a 200lb to a 250lb... might help quite a bit. Still, your advice is sound- don't get me wrong.
