    Correct. You add 5 pounds for all lift every time you do that lift, except deadlift, where you add 10 pounds.

    You also start the program with an empty bar for all lifts except deadlift and rows,...

    I agree -- you aren't doing the program, you're just lifting however you want to lift. I know that both because you went heavy and because you deadlifted and benched on the same day, and the...

    Every gym I've ever been a member of offers both for a slight upcharge. That's what I always did, just alternating workouts as I saw fit.

    You only add 5 pounds per workout on Stronglifts too, with the exception of deadlift. But even then, you are adding 10 pounds every other workout, not 10 pounds per workout, because you don't...

    I think most of the beginner programs focus on 5-6 compound lifts. I'm doing Stronglifts 5x5 now, but Starting Strength is similar. If you're beyond that, I'll defer to others since I'm a beginning...

    I'd prefer bodyweight to the Smith machine, but you can certainly use the Smith machine to do some of your lifts.

    Lifting will help more than anything. I'm using the Stronglifts 5x5 program, and I'm not really bulking at all (I'm only about a month or so in, though), and I'm pretty much just eating primal. The...

    I got the Starting Strength DVD, and I recommend it highly. The book is helpful, but the DVD gives you good, visual examples of what to do. I improved my squat form immediately this morning. I...
