I'd say that ken meant he liked that Lilly was calling out the sport of powerlifting. too many fat asses that are relying on only gear for their ego's. I train with a lot of geared lifters but there's something much more impressive to me about watching someone squat 800 pounds raw than someone squatting 600 3 inches high in a squat suit and briefs or even someone relying on their big gut for a shorter range of motion on their bench press. at times he does contradict himself but i still had much better gains than I did on 5-3-1 and it's a lot less repetitive. i'm currently winging it and doing whatever I want on bench, squat, and DL and loving it. It's funner to me when you go into the gym and don't have to worry about doing a certain percentage of max effort.
