I’m wondering if there’s any way to add more volume to starting strength. During the winter I teach snowboarding so my legs had to handle the pressure of working out with the addition of being under constant tension while snowboarding. When I started starting strength I was a little concerned but my legs pulled through perfectly fine and I made great gains. Now that I’ve stopped snowboarding my gains have slowed considerably.
I believe that the additional pressure my legs had to deal with helped my gains considerably. I also read an article way back about the different personalities of lifters and the one that applied to me the most said something about my type being good at handling volume (The earth type describes me perfectly if anyone reads the article).
I’m just wondering if anyone has any advice on adding volume to Starting Strength
Right now my workout looks like:
Military Press 3x5
Pendlay Row 3x5
Bench Press 3x5
and then day 1 and day 2 alternate, training days mon, wed, fri.
Since my time to lift is limited I was thinking of super-setting the first 2 lifts of each workout with another exercise since I don’t have much room for supplemental exercises to be added. Any ideas?
