Default Re: Lifting How to Start

Essentially TLDR explanation:

Rippetoe's program is too heavily focused on bar weight gains that it loses focus on the muscles, which make up the movement. You can have good form but even then, with such a poundage focus, imbalances will arise. Best to supplement good form with bodybuilding and accessory work from the getgo. You might take a few more weeks to get to certain strength benchmarks, but the quality of those reps will be a hell of a lot better and less of an injury risk.
