Cheks progressions of training: revised.
Chek advocates that training progresses in this order
1) flexibility( both joints and muscle length)
I have used this metric for many years for my clients and myself with great success but I think it time I adapted it a bit:
3) basic endurance
5) strength endurance
I think once the joint is mobile and stable than, as McGill suggests basic endurance of that stable position is important as a base for strength training. Then strengh THEN strength endurance. Then power training can come into play safely.
