    Well sounds like SS is/was working, so keeping doing it. Minus the deloads. Warm up sets should have good technique, when you're close or at your max it's never going to look perfect.
    yeah, today I was doing another SS/p.h.a.t workout when I thought, F it I'm cutting the bullshit and just get back to the real lifts. So I'm 100% SS again.
    well then

      Being careful while lifting is one of the core tenets of Starting Strength. Case in point, look how much of the book is devoted to proper form.

      Injuries ultimately happen to everyone who's willing to work hard and grind reps out. So does progress. Ultimately you have to make your own decision whether the latter is sufficient to justify the former.

      I think you made a good call. Start at a reasonable level, and keep your form super tight as the weights start to add up again.

        I don't care about the injury itself at all. I simply do not want to get all crippled or being forced to lay off lifting for a long amount of time
        well then
