i am all but done with this thread. just don't characterize ss as poor for athletes. it is the exact opposite. is it readily combine-able with cutting fat or running marathons or playing a full season of hockey. well, no. all of those things affect your recovery and will slow down your progress. and that is NO DIFFERENT from any other program.
