Actually, guys, training in the opposite direcion does have it's place. It's not common, rightfully so, but I've seen many programs, especiall in an adaptative phase, that actually work the weakest then go on to the strongest. The idea is to "shore up" the weak links first off. You'll still get work on the bigger groups, just without the loading. For example, consider this complex , done non-stop with the same weight:
Barbells used, upright row, muscle snatch from floor, behind neck push press, , ood morning, bent row. You select a weight based on upright rows. Looks like the squat push presses will be a breeze right? Wrong It's a great way to shore things up. Granted, they might only be used for a two - three week period, but useful nontheless.
