Default Re: On A Scale Of One To Ten, How Important Is Lifting Weights?

Lefty,

What are your thoughts on overhead pressing movements in general for athletic training? I have read some athletic trainers who believe it to be overrated and unnecessary, and yet of course there are so many benefits.

Also, do you prefer to train snatches/cleans with say 50-60% maximal weight or 85-90%, thus slowing down the movement. What do you feel is more appropriate for a speed strength sport such as boxing?
