    The Rippetoe cult laws? Three compound lifts? What?

    Well, it relies on the assumption that you're not a precious, special little snowflake and that the type of programming that has worked for novice lifters for decades will work for you if you're a novice lifter. Some people take offense to that, but I can't exactly understand why. I just pat the snowflakes on the head and go squat my junk off.

    Because every snowflake is precious and unique. You know the type, every discussion involves them saying something like:

    "Everyone is different, what works for someone, might not work for you!"

    ... Except it does. Every person in existence who is physically capable of working with barbells, will get stronger the most efficiently with barbells. Millions of people, all over the world, for decades, have used barbells to build a lot of strength. ... But not you. You're different. You're unique. You will just do some push-ups, and curl some dumbbells, and you'll be strong, because barbells are not for you, not for your gentle snowflake body. It's too unique...

    Hi umm7

    You could try a couple of weeks of daily greasing the groove with Hindu or bootstrapper squats. I also warmup with deep supported squats, arse to the floor.

    Just started lifting again and flexibility is limiting my rom, especially ankle flexibility. Up to mt 2nd week of squats and slowly building weight and ROM. Keep at it and don't be afraid to back off the weight to get form dialed in.

    Wow, quite a bit of backlash on my comment, I probably should have clarified what exactly I meant.

    I never once said anything against the three compound lifts. In fact, they create the basis of my training (as they should everyone else's who is capable of performing the lifts properly). However, you have the bigots who speak of Rippetoe like he's the second coming, and say if you don't squat you're a pansy, so on and so forth.

    No one has to squat. It's not some sort of magical exercise that makes the world go 'round. Squatting is excellent, but if someone has injuries/physical limitations that don't allow them to squat correctly, they shouldn't worry about squatting.

    Calling me a troll because I don't worship Rippetoe is absurd.
