I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

@VPeric As HerrKaput says, nothing is irreplaceable. I think that the lower body, particularly the posterior chain, needs an external load to create meaningful resistance. Hip extension via KB swings/cleans/snatches provides it. I also found that unweighted pistols very quickly became like push-ups: strengthy, but also endurancey. But as gymnasts and the BarStarzz show, one can get impressively strong and capable (particularly in the upper body) with just a pull-up bar and no more.

Excellent point about "no irreplaceable exercise" in the 2nd paragraph.

comment My knees come together when I squat. Is this ok?
When you say you've been following Starting Strength, do you mean the book or some other source? The book is clear about being 3x5 instead of 5x5 (though I made that mistake too for a few workouts), and talks about knees caving in. How often have you been deloading?

comment Can glycogen only be used by the muscle in which it is stored in?
I very much appreciate this detailed scientific answer.
