    Stronglifts is a similar program, but has some advantages:
    1. There's an app for it. It tells you what lifts and how much weight, and automatically will have you deload if you miss your sets/reps for a few workouts in a row.
    2. You start with the bar for the first workout, and add weight each time. No messing around with maximums, or trying to decide what feels heavy.

    1. Why do you need an app for a simple novice linear progression? We're not talking 5/3/1 here. And yes, I have a 5/3/1 spreadsheet I'll share if anyone needs it.
    2. Is it really that hard to perceive when the bar slows down? For untrained ladies, this might very well be the empty bar. They might even need a lighter ladies' bar, especially for the press. Why should a guy who's squatted before start at 45 lbs and waste weeks doing basically nothing?
