Is solely relying on heavy barbell training the best way to achieve hypertrophic, strength, and performance adaptations? Is there room for any other methods?

And are physical therapists all a bunch of “weenie frauds”?
In episode 7.5 of The Strength of Evidence Podcast, Jon and Bret respond to Mark Rippetoe’s latest TNation article and demonstrate how to properly analyze polarizing, black & white articles.
