Actually it would not really prepare one for playing Bach either
Agreed! I think you and I both hold the study of Bach to be something pursued as a category in and of itself, using his own works to train in sequence.

Parallel scales in various rhythms and speeds
The above at the 3rd and 6th interval
Contrary scales in various rhythms and speeds
The above at the 3rd and 6th interval
As above but with interspersed chords
Parallel Major, minor and V7 chords in all inversions
The above at different intervals
Major and minor chords in broken fashion, both ascending and descending
Linked octaves in all tonal scales
Linked octaves in chromatic scales
Any/all of the above with broken octaves in both versions
Any/all of the above with "false octaves" (my term for the hand holding the shape of an octave, but either the thumb or other finger doesn't actually play, it just approaches to the note; especially useful when the thumb is the silent one)
Any/all the above with different articulations
Any of the above with different assignments for each hand



Rather like my brother and his exercises on the guitar. He used to do them for hours but I do not believe he had a single piece is his repertoire, or at least I never heard him play anything.
do training like that and when, pray, do you have the time to practise music?
