This goes along with the unable to do a pull up question in a sense.

Just starting my first round of 10/20/L and doing a few off seasons as I’m quite detrained. Anyway. I was approached about how since I couldn’t do any dips or pull ups and few push ups, I should skip weight training and just focus on being able to do that. This was coming from a strong powerlifter. Due to the fact you could put pushups, inverted rows/pull ups and negative dips/dips in your warm up (not to mention work on them during deload weeks) this seemed really odd. I suppose I’m looking for some validation here but I feel I’d come to the source for their take. The other issue they mentioned was 1 weeks for a PR as a novice (even after 3 years) is “insane”.
