Judging by the name of the abstract it doesn't attempt to debunk that squats increase testosterone, just that the said horomone does not cause strength gains by itself.

Squats don't increase testosterone. That is absurdly stupid and disproven.

The article sucks but his program is as weak as SS but for different reasons. If only there was a novice program that got you strong (which makes you big as a natty) but balanced... Like ICF...
>>
read it

solid advice actually

the tldr of it is

-be honest with your goals, "muh strength" is just a cover for most guys who honestly just want to look better
- do push pull legs or uppper lower 2x a week to get a more balanced workload
- add some accessories for the ego muscles
-stop being a fatass and cut first, you'll look/feel better and gain some discipline

stopped reading right there. someone who thinks SS is powerlifting has immediately lost all credibility. who is the guy, anyway? this level of "knowledge" reminds me of a typical internet lifter with 6 months of training experience and who got most of his info from other beginners on the internet.

These faggots act as if once you go t-rex mode you're screwed for ever. "Oh I wish someone had told me not do SS back in the day"

Fuck off. Your body is malleable. You can change your body composition. SS is good because it gives a strength base and teaches proper form on the main lifts and linear progression. If you want to continue PL, then switch to a more advanced PL routine. If you want aesthetics, switch to a routine that puts more emphasis on upper body movements.

Stop blaming your shitty physique on SS. It's your own fault faggot.

I wonder why this isn't common knowledge. I'm in no way an expert lifter, but even I can see that squatting three times a week is retarded. I mean, it all depends on your goals, that's for sure. But sometimes people on SL or SS resemble me a cult, this is especially the case with SL. Back when I started lifting I too did SL. Why? Because I started with just the bar on all the compound movements and worked my way up. Once I started to lift more I researched a routine that fits my goal better. So I added some isolation and higher volume stuff.

The thing that people in this kind of discussion don't seem to understand is that SL and SS are BEGINNERS routine meant to be followed for a max of six months. And guys like the fellow on reddit that complain about beginners doing too much lower body work are stupid. A beginner squatting three times a week and doing other stuff is going to see GAINS, both strenght and hypertrophy wise. Once he becomes stronger he can do whatever the fuck he wants.

Do I still squat? Of course I do. Do I still do 5X5 reps on some of my exercises? Of course I do. So what?
>>
>Uhm, is there even any doubt? Give me 100 kg on my squat please.
I'm not sure why you need to say that everyone who doesn't share your goals secretly want the same things as you and are in denial. What a silly way to look at other people.
Other than that I agree that if you want size, then strength focused programs aren't ideal. However, SS and SL are good for other things:
A newbie is not experienced enough to create his own programs. The compounds are also the most technical, and with SS and SL you spend a lot of time practicing them for a short period. I think it's worth it for anyone to be good at doing the major compounds. If anything they will give you big gains in athletic ability, because they work the basic motor patterns
You also learn how progress feels and looks, what affects your recovery systems. With a split there are more exercises, and that brings more variables.
They also are minimalistic, the workouts don't take long, and that gives you a bit of mental leeway to figure other stuff out like diet, being new in the gym and figuring out the culture etc.
If you don't want to be good at compounds then you can just do a standard brosplit you find online I guess. That'll be better for impressing girls at the beach.
I fully agree that you should cut first if you're overweight. However, Rippetoe also says to do that. He only advocates GOMAD for those who have low body fat and not much lean mass.

i never wanted to punch somebody so hard through on the internet. are all lebbitards such condescending pieces of shit?

who was moronic enough to bulk on SS done incorrectly, for one entire fucking year, without accessories like its written in the book, ended up a blob (no shit enstein), moved to a decent weight/ high rep routine, AND THEN shit on a routine he didn't even do correctly but gave him nevertheless strenght result THAT HE NEEDED to do his second routine later ( he admit he could'nt even do a pushup before)..

I fell for the strength training low-rep troll. My OHP and bench went up over a hundred pounds but I look exactly the same. I'm going to increase the reps, do drop sets, super sets, and chase dat sweet pump now.
>>
I lifted with lower rep range and stuck mostly to the big lifts.

I don't regret it, even though I barely look like I lift when I have my shirt on. It was easy to stick to and it really was just that, a starting program. What it did give me is decent strength, even while I was losing weight. Now, even after many months of not going to the gym, I still outlift my friends who went straight into brosplit bb routine, although they look better than me at the time (lower bodyfat % helps).

Now I can switch to a more BB focused program while still having the strength to push decent weight and not babbyweight like when I first started. It also made my frame "big", so I know I'll look good once I fully cut.

I agree that squatting that much is not useful or beneficial unless you really want to become a PL. Took me years of recomposition after SS to become useful at other sports again. And I wasn't even squatting HEAVY heavy.

>Look at the weekly volume in SS. Legs: 70

The gym math, it hurts lol

Either deadlift and power clean don't count for legs OR bench counts for shoulders and press counts for chest. Somehow people who claim to have lifted heavy weights for a long time have never noticed that the leg stress in dl/pc is radically less than squatting ...

Everything in that post is more or less spot on. He's right that routines like starting strength get taken way too far. All he's saying is that for most people's goals they should be keeping the heavy strength work but programming it in such a way that they're going to get good development in their entire physique, and work in more accessories to complement that.

What he say's about cutting is more of a subjective thing but from my perspective I would agree, although I know for some people it's not true.

Just look at the routine he posted with it, it's basically the sort of balanced routine that people who actually lift recommend here all the time. If you implemented what he's suggesting in an upper/lower split instead of a 3 day full body it would essentially just be Candito's Linear with front squats instead of back squatting, which totally makes sense if maxing your back squat isn't your main goal.

Anyone who thinks the guy who wrote this is an idiot or misguided clearly doesn't know the first fucking thing about lifting. Bunch of obese /pol/acks who troll here in their spare time.

>-do push pull legs or uppper lower 2x a week to get a more balanced workload
Why do people think SS/SL are not balanced? It's nearly 50/50 upper/lower. Also, why do people think SS/SL are powerlifting routines? These people have no fucking clue of what a PL routine looks like.

Agree, nothing prevents you from adding accessories to SS/SL, and in fact you should add some after the first couple months once you have the main lifts' technique down.

Only if you are a fatass, skinnyfats between 15 and 20 bf% should eat at maintenance or even bulk. They are going to look like utter shit if they cut with no muscle mass whatsoever.

That guy pretty much showed he doesn't know jack shit when he says
>Look at the weekly volume in SS. Legs: 70. Shoulders: 22. Chest: 22. Upper back: 22. Does this seem aligned with your goals?

I don't know how he got those numbers, but every two weeks it's
legs: (squats) 3*5*6 + (deads)1*5*3 = 105
shoulders: (ohp) 3*5*3 + (bench) 3*5*3 = 90
chest: same as above = 90
upperback/back in general: (deads) 1*5*3 + (powerclean) 5*3*3 + (ohp) 3*5*3 = 105
So that's the reps for every two weeks, and it's fairly balanced. I don't even know how he's getting 22's as reps since it's all multiples of 5.

It's pretty much a /fit/ tier troll who just organizes his information well to look like he knows what he's talking about and trick beginners.
>>
>>31853201
but "lifting for strength" is much more likely to produce disproportionately large legs.
>>
>>31853218
In fact, upper body volume should be lower than lower body volume, because they are smaller muscles that don't recover as fast.
>>
>>31852151
This is stupid and here's why:
1. Why would you CUT first if you have no muscle? If your main goal is to look "good" then WHATS WRONG with getting a little fat first to out on some fucking muscle?

2. You need strength to become aesthetic, Powerlifting routines are great because that's the focus. To be strong fast. The sooner you are the strong, the sooner you can get aesthetic,

3. There is little point in adding acursors that will mess with progression. Your priority during the beginning should be to get strong. Put the fucking dumbbell down, you don't need biceps bigger then your quads, they will mask your deltoids and triceps.

Get strong then work on your weaknesses from poor training because you were too stupid to read the book.

This should be the general response anytime somebody claims a beginner program can cause serious muscular imbalances.
>>
I'm 188cm tall and 89 kg. The weight/height ratio is good but I got no muscle and lots of fat. I cut from 105 kg to here so Im tired of cutting. I decided to do SL while eating at maintenance to get some muscle without getting more weight. Was this a good decision? I eat healthy food and lots of protein. I'm advancing quite good on the program so far(3rd week). I also do stretching, foam rolling and mobility work before a workout. Maybe cardio in rest days maybe not. Dis good /fit/?

I thought that was implied in "lifting for strength" sorry. I do know a guy who literally only trains for bench press (and doing pullups as an accessory) and he's aesthetic as fuck.
>>
>>31853277
I would say don't squat 3 times a week. Replace one squat set with some other upper body lift. Either work on bench/OHP form with lighter weight or do some other upper body stuff.

The tl;dr version of that post
>>
>>31853324
I know my legs got out of proportion on SS. The SS technique puts lots of weight on the adductors, hamstrings and glutes, which means you can lift a lot more than you should be doing at that stage. As a consequence, your legs balloon up. Squatting 3 times a week might not have produced this result if you used a high bar or quad dominant technique.

That's full bullshit, even low-bar squatting is still mostly the quad, it just adds more posterior chain. and how exactly are you "lifting more than you should be?" is there a guideline some where that says you must be training for at least a year to squat 2 plate?

I personally made shitty gains doing 3x5 either bench or press each day. Never felt fatigued in my upperbody, even right after my third set
>>
>>31853424
The whole point of SS technique is to distribute more weight on all leg muscles, not just quads. Did you even read the book?

You are lifting more than you should when your upper body cannot support the weight your legs and ass are able to push. The "good morning squat" is not a meme.

I don't understand what you're implying here. SS does a floor pull movement every day and a low bar squat every day. If anything that would create more imbalance than a typical oly highbar/floorpull routine.

>>31853437
Is it a good idea to do Candito's linear beginner program after SL, or should I go for his strength/hypertrophy program directly?
>>
>>31853460
Except low-bar squatting is also not good morning squatting, and people on /fit/ like to call everything that isn't perfectly vertical a good morning because they're dyel fucks who don't lift heavy. And a lowbar squat distributes the weight to the glutes and posterior chain, that doesn't mean it doesn't hit your quads the most still.
>>

Not him, but it's generally because the glutes/back are stronger than the quads so people shoot their hips up to take load off the legs themselves and focus on the hip hinge

Or even better: SL -> Madcow -> Candito's

No I didn't pay or know a lifting coach so I can guess from reading material. Hips raising faster than upper chest will produce the good morning. Which is a combination of beginner mistakes and weak back.

Front squats are also significantly lighter than back squats and don't put nearly as much stress on your quads/legs etc compared to back squatting, they're good assist but no where near heavy enough to replace actual back squatting.

nope. Well, you can take your temperature and heart rate as you wake up and make a graph. If both increase over time, that could be a sign of over reaching
But I'd just go with "Do I feel fatigued? Do I feel weak? Am I regressing in weight?" If yes, decrease volume or increase recovery (more food, more sleep, decrease life stress). If no, keep going.
Just know that it's preeety hard to do so much volume you can recover

unrelated anon here,

what's the bottom line of this discussion you guys are having,
>>
>>31853696
Its an explosive excercise. It is of course a pull, but it doesn't do much to increase strength. Power cleans only improve explosiveness.

>every other day means MWF
You need a fucking dictionary, dear lord.
>>
>>31853718
something about "How do you know if you're doing too much volume"
>>
>>31853531
You literally have it the wrong way round.
>>
>>31853718
>too much volume where you can't recover will lead to overreaching and feeling like shit
>good news is reducing volume then will make you see big gains
>also good news is that apparently it's really fucking hard to actually do enough volume to get into a overtraining stage
So I guess if you feel like you can do extra sets, do them.

>>31852151
the very fact that this stupid nigger never read the book, never read practical programming, and is already criticizing SS is idiotic

listen up you mongs, the real troll routine is SL because that retard mehdi is a moron

however in SS, Rip goes full detail about accessory work, in Practical Programming, Rip give also much more detail about intermediate/advanced strength training and in no situation did Rip say " don't do accessory, don't do curls/triceps " and whatever shit you niggers say

it isn't Rip's fault you niggers got fat, because you did GOMAD without slightly thinking if it is for you

Rip never advised to get fat, he's right to say that achieving low bodyfat for a beginner and even intermediate is pure stupidity on so many levels, but that doesn't mean you need to be fat. His position about this is clear as he said being between 15% and 17% is ideal and he's also right again too

now you can be shredded if you want to, be my guest, as a beginner however following that will simply mean failing at some point

but anyway, since you niggers are too stupid do whatever your zyzz split shit, but don't wonder after that as to why you look weak and like a little pussy

protip : if you want to be aesthetic, just jump on roids, period. those nice physiques you see are mostly not natty at all.

if you can't bench 2plate for reps and squat nearly 3plate for reps you are never going to get the muscular look most guys are trying to get

if you don't act like a powerlifter and get super serious about your eating and adding weight to the bar as often as possible it will take forever to get there

honestly if you just "go to the gym" like most guys and do some lifting and dick around doing 3x10 and thinking you don't need to lift heavy, you will never get strong

you don't just accidentally gain 20-30lbs of muscle and squat 3plate and have big muscles

SS is a powerful routine. The muscle you gain with SS isn't 10 rep fluff muscle that disappears forever. I did SS for a year, and gained 20kg of muscle, 15kg of that was on my back and legs. When I went through a gaming stage, I lost all the muscle from not eating and not doing anything.

As soon as I started eating again, I didn't even touch a weight, all my back and leg muscle gained on SS came back. That wouldn't happen with 10 rep hypertrophy muscle.

The OP of that has no idea what hes talking about, but some of the comments make good points. One guy basically said once you can squat at least 2pl8 and bench 1pl8 to switch to a split program.

the reddit article literally never mentions adding weight to the bar

>bench 85%, then slow bulk
>no mention of how much you should be lifting or what your goals should be

yeah that is helpful

It's soooooooooooooooo heavily fucking biased

It's using a beginner routine that MOST POWERLIFTERS WHO ARE WORTH SHIT will tell you to avoid, or don't bother with.

It's not really shocking that's so highly upvoted since /r/fitness is for absolute fucking retards

>>31859094
Reddit is for retards. Now go back there, you are clearly from there since you know what it's like.

This guy is a retard. If he actually read SS he wouldn't disagree with it. He also recommends curls two days in a row UNIRONICALLY. Just do them on the last day of the week whatever you want to do and you will look lean.

>They're beginners programs.
what kind of beginner needs a routine with lower body specialization? the truth is they're not even beginner powerlifting programs, the bench volume is too low for that, they're routines for football players

It does though. Not enough to make a difference but it does. Fuck off.

it is, you just have no idea about the proper lowbar form

THIS. FUCKING THIS. STOP BITCHING ABOUT T REX, IF YOU END UP T REX YOU DIDN'T EVEN DO THE WHOLE PROGRAM.

If I'd like to go for a mixture of both strength and aesthetics, is continuing on PL (while adding in accessories) the way to go? I figure if I think my legs are starting to get too big for my liking I can just cut down on the amount of squats I do and start doing a bit more upper body, is that true?

That's not a strawman. It's a fallacy, but it's not a strawman.

What do you expect? Most of the denizens of /fit/ have no real discipline or patience, they want everything RIGHT NOW, but they're lazy cunts who don't want to do any REAL work, and even if they try, they get badgered and bullied by other lazy cunts and end up not doing everything they should be doing. Then they go take steroids, or DNP, or clen or other stupid shit, and tell everyone else that's what you have to do to get swole. And so the viscious cycle continues.

So I read this earlier in the day and his arguments were more along the lines of curls for the girls, he's edited it somewhat and I find myself agreeing with him for the most part, r/fitness seems like a place for more general sincere advice than /fit/ and I've been coming here for a long time it's really just a more chaotic version of misc with less focus on lifting specifically
