    Do you have access to a Roman Chair? I use that whenever I go to the gym and it really helps alleviate any lower back pain for me.

    Are power cleans and number of sets the only differences between SS & SL? I've decided to go with SL but I'm wondering if, as a woman, I should start with 3x5 sets or do the program 5x5 like it says?

    How so? I've been using the PBF movements as a warm-up before lifting weights. I've been thinking of buying the Body By You exercise vids though.
