@stslavik True, but SAID will only take you so far. Doing the exact thing is great for technique, efficiency, and turning general strength into specific strength, but my understanding is that sports science agrees that a base level of strength should be achieved with general strength training, then specific strength training can help make one's overall strength activity-specific. This rumsoakedfist post makes some good points on the issue.
