Priority of practical application

11.28 It is practical application that determines whether or not a certain training modality works for the individual concerned. When properly supervised on someone who is not restrained by injuries or structural limitations, and who is not at the limit of his muscular potential, all the interpretations of training described in this book have the potential to deliver substantial muscular development. But each interpretation must be done well and on a sustained basis. It has to be done for a whole cycle of a few months, or longer, to deliver noticeable results.

11.29 No matter how good something may be in theory, or in practice for some people, if you cannot put it into practice for long enough to see results, it is not productive for you. You must find an approach that you enjoy, that you can do consistently, and that delivers results for you.
