    Actually, I believe and practice all of those things - and also get lazy and sometimes go weeks without a workout. And I look okay. This clearly isn't for people who want to compete, it's for general health and body comp with reasonable strangth for living, and it's good.

    As usual, I agree with Knifegill. Nobody's arguing about whether this type of protocol is far superior to skipping strength training entirely, just whether it's the optimal way for a novice lifter to program strength training.

    Really I'm trying to think of any other single exercise that does hit everything??? Anyone got another one? Deadlift leaves out the tris and shoulders and chest. Chins and dips leave out the legs. Squats are good, but not gonna count that for chest shoulder or arms. Is the clean and press the only one?
    Well, okay, how about if my body part is MOST of the whole body and then I just fill in the parts missing with other MOST of the body exercises?

    Starting squat: 45lbs. Current squat: 170 x 3. Current Deadlift: 220 x 3

    Exactly! Let me get out of this thread then, thanks for warning me...

    Sounds like what I do so it must be the best way
