Question Practical Programming: For Strength Training

By Mark Rippetoe. Is it needed after I finish SS? Will SS give me the main things I need to start SS or is this the pt. 2 to learn and apply a SS routine? Need help

Don't worry about PP, stay with SS for at least 4-6 months, then decide what / where to go.
BTW, post you SS questions on Mark's board.

Link is w/f/s.

Note the Name of this board is CF, NOT SS.

Re: Practical Programming: For Strength Training

One step at a time...Practical Programming is more about the human response to exercise. If you're a novice lifter, SS will give you everything you need to know right now. It may be tempting to read everything in sight if you're new to lifting and passionate about it, but that will only give you faulty reasoning for jerking with Rip's SS program. Just stick to SS like gospel for a few months and see what happens. Read the book a few times. There are a lot of gems in there. You'll be happy you did. Once you raise your lifts up 50 or so pounds, you can move on to MEBB, 5x5, or other intermediate programs.

PP is a very interesting read, and is full of great information. Worth getting and reading if you plan to stick w/ barbell training once you exhaust the beginner program.

Re: Practical Programming: For Strength Training

Definitely buy and read PP; it offers some alternative programs for a beginner to do, as well as ways to stay with linear progression once you've started getting beat down by deads and heavy back squats.

The information in the book won't screw up what you do with SS, at least not if you have some will power and realize that you're far better served sticking with the basics in the SS program or the Onus Wunsler program, both of which are in SS and quite good.
