Re: seeking excercise plan

thanks for your reply. I want to build muscle and lose some man-boob and belly fat. I know some of that has to do with diet.
I'm not overweight, but would just like to tone up.

Starting strength starting questions

I noticed SS doesnt use dumbbells. Why is this?
Also, why doesn't SS use incline or decilne bench press?

Has anyone combined any Crossfit WODs with SS?
Is that helpful or damaging?
