If you spend enough time on the internet, you can find something new in the field of strength training nearly every month. A seemingly endless number of people stake their continued progress or their careers on being the next genius to figure out a better or faster way to get strong. Why? Mostly impatience. It is natural to want to get as strong as possible as quickly as possible. However, the process of getting strong really cannot be rushed. Understand that time under the bar matters. Without the use of performance enhancing drugs, it takes many years to get to a 400 pound bench press, a 500 pound squat, a 400 pound clean.
Those numbers are much more likely to be hit with big, basic exercises we've known and used almost since the invention of the plate loaded barbell. But once the beginner gains are over, and weight doesn't go on the bar as often or in large chunks, a lot of people start thinking there must be better exercises or assistance exercises that can speed the process. Some think they have a weakness or some imbalance to address. Trying to turn every form of human movement into some fashion of resistance exercise produces something new, but almost never useful. Do these "new" or "more advanced" methods of weighted movement--stability training, kettlebell training, core training, core stability, unilateral training--solve real problems in strength training? Usually not. As Mark Rippetoe has said, the reason we use the heavy, multi-joint, basic exercises--back squats, deadlifts, cleans, presses, bench press--is because they involve the most muscle and have proven over a long period of trial and error to be the best exercises for developing great strength.
There are some newer exercises that can help very advanced lifters who are stuck in their progress, who have mastered and maximized the potential of the basics. Band squats, chain squats, pause lifts, partial movements, etcetera, have their place and have, over time, proven their utility. But until an exercise has been in common use for a decade or more and proven its usefulness, it can be safely ignored.
Strength training progress is not rocket science. In fact, exercise science is mostly useful to theorists in the field and the most advanced strength sport athletes and coaches. While the scientific understanding of what happens pyhsioligically in the process of strength training has advanced, how you actually get strong in the gym, for most people, has not changed much at all. At first you can add weight to the bar every workout. After a few months you have to add weight every week, then every couple of weeks. This process carries most trainees for several months, or for some, over a year. Then you have to adopt a two-steps-up, one-step-back approach--periodization--that involves a greater volume of work. Adding weight to your lifts happens every four, six, eight, weeks or longer. This method can last for years before you exhaust its potential for making you stronger.
Trying to shorten the process with every new method that pops up in your Facebook feed will most often retard progress, not enhance it. The internet produces "geniuses" like mushrooms popping up after a summer rain: plentiful, but ephemeral. Methods like squat every day, the Bulgarian method, The Russian Squat Routine, and German Volume Training have broken many more athletes than they have carried to the next level.
Nor should more advanced periodized programming approach continued strength gains like a problem in theoretical physics. The basics of it have been widely known for a long time, and the basics need only be applied to your situation, which is, I can almost guarantee, not unique.
A genius, to my mind, is anyone who can learn from OTHER people's mistakes. When you have done what many others have done successfully and taken it to the limit of its effectiveness, then, and only then, may some creativity be warranted. Before that, suck it up, get under the bar, and grind. Remember THE SECRET: Show up. Train hard. Repeat for 10 years.
