I'm 26 and have been lifting on and off somewhat casually since my sophomore year of high school. Less so for the last few years as I got out of college and started working my first job, and I'm trying to get back into it and follow a structured program, which I've never really done before.
I started following StrongLifts 5x5 program about a month ago and have enjoyed it just because I can feel my body firming up and like the progress I'm making, but then I ran into an article which touts StrongLifts as "far inferior" to Starting Strength. So, now I'm unsure if I should continue with StrongLifts, switch to Starting Strength, or what.
In your experience, what is the best beginner's weightlifting program and why? What would you recommend to someone who, for now, just wants to generally improve their strength and conditioning?
I'm 5'9" and weigh 185 lbs, in case that makes any sort of a difference or gives a clearer picture. Let me know if you need any other info about me.
Thanks for your help.
