    Okay, so not super heavy but definitely more than your body weight.

    Anyhow, it's better to get the form right now rather than have to correct it down the road when the bad habits are really ingrained, or worse, to injure yourself later when things get really heavy (I find form has become increasingly critical as my lifts get heavier).

    I however still do SS, because I do the exact workout, and rest on my rest days. You could also say I do not do starting strength because I have to walk up stairs after my workout. If stopping pullups will make me stronger than sure I'll do it, but I have a gained a lot of nice definition in my back and I think that's because of the pullups/dips

    I heat you regarding pullups...I can't imagine a work out without them. Focus on the basics of SS you will be moving onto a more advance program soon enough.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    I think I'll be focusing on SS for the next year or so. I'm pretty sure afterwards I will be moving to 531

    Prob not much more than a year I wouldn't think. 531 is good but be open.

    We just started 531, and I'm really liking it so far. I'll post about it in my journal as I go through this first cycle and see what I get for results.

    My progress is very slow. May be bad genes, or the fact that I'm 15, I don't know. But I will keep doing this until I'm hardly improving anymore. 531 has all these assistant works which I think is a bit more bodybuilding-ish. Which is also what I'm looking for

    Today I went from 175 lbs to 145 lbs squat. A shame but I noticed my form was better. Luckily my OP went up and last workout my Bench went up as well. Went from 200lb deadlift to 180 lbs deadlift. Let's get some bacon now
