I have been weight training for about 5 months. Now, i’ve decided to follow the ‘starting strength’ program.
I have a question and hope you guys can help me with. I know my lifts for those exercises, but the starting strength program requires me to start from empty bar for all exercises for the first workout and slowly add little weight workout by workout such that i reach my 5RM, only after 6 weeks! So that means that my workouts for the first 6 weeks will be of very low intensity.
I’m curious what’s the use of this? Conditioning for future workouts? Wouldn’t that be a waste of 6 weeks of workouts with low intensity training which i doubt would improve my strength.
