    Most people can leg press a lot more than they can squat. Is the squat a parlor trick as well?

    If "strength" (whatever the fuck that means) and hypertrophy is all about how much weight you can...

    Is Rich on your ignore list? Okay, I'll quote him one more time:

  3. Starting Strength isn't Practical Programming,...

    Starting Strength isn't Practical Programming, nor is it any of Mark Rippetoe's seminars. It's a very specific book (called "Starting Strength") and describes, among many things, a popular training...
  4. 'Big numbers' is a relative term in the world of...

    Do I think Starting Strength is about putting up big numbers on the three big lifts? Yes. Yes, I do. We call it 'getting stronger', and that is the sole purpose of a strength program.[/QUOTE]

    That doesn't make any sense.

    I'll let Rippetoe answer that question:

    Optimal for what? She mentioned that she is recovering from a knee injury, and maybe that's why she's in the gym. Is 3x5 squats optimal for this purpose?

    Personally, I don't think that's why she's...

    384 lbs deadlift @ 114 lbs bodyweight = 172 Wilk's score = advanced lifter

    Something doesn't add up. The "elite"...

    Did it ever occur to any of you that the original poster never stated her goals? How in the world can you give advice when you don't know what she's trying to achieve? It doesn't make any sense.

    Are you suggesting that gymnasts and weightlifters have to use wildly different protocols to get strong with minimal weight gain? I find that interesting to say the least. Would you care to elaborate?

    One of the things that bother me the most about crossfit is the casual approach to injuries. "If it happens, it happens." I find that attitude very problematic, especially when some of the WODs...

    I would not recommend Starting Strength (or any other strength based program) if aesthetics is your primary goal. Those programs are designed to make you stronger even at the expense of aesthetics.
