In the world of strength there are many philosophies and routes to take. Which program is the best? Wendlers 5/3/1, Smolov? the Cube? Westside?  I guarantee you one thing. The second someone mentions one as the best method you will have an equal or greater amount of haters explain why _________ program sucks. The truth is many of them have a place in training and many people respond differently to different programs. I am realizing it is less about a program and following certain percentages and more about following a guiding philosophy. I hear lots of lifters more experienced than myself talk about this and I guess I finally just understand it. I Recently I saw a forum post somewhere in which guys were talking trash on speed work and strength training. The conversation was comical on how personal each internet warrior felt like thier way was the only and best way. The conversation got really heated, especially when someone started talking about Crossfit for strength.  I want to share a bit of my experience in using the the Base Building philosophy laid out in the book by Paul Carter.
