Before the flames begin:
I used the search button and read the relevant stuff on T-Nation and bb.com, but most of the things that come up are other peoples rippetoe logs. If they are ‘starting strength’ like me, then reading their stuff may be the blind leading the blind. I didn’t post this in the beginners section because I wanted some experienced opinions.
I started it today and liked it, pretty simple but seemed effective. A couple questions, though, without making it too complicated:
Does it matter how long I rest in between sets/exercises?
Should I record or be real concerned with warm up sets?
Do most people agree on the 5% increase each week in weight?
I understand you should eat a butt-load of food to gain while on this program, do you eat the same on off days as training days?
Am I going to get flamed for not just buying the gaddang book?
Thanks everybody, I’m sure I’ll get SOMETHING good from ya
