my older brother wants to get stronger, he is basically a beginner, under 200 squat and 305 dead after a couple of months getting into it.
Is starting strength “ripptoe” OK for a 40 year old? It is 3x5 squats every training day, basically 3 days a week. I know a beginner is usually much younger and this program is geared to them.
Have you done something like this, was recovery an issue?
his proposed training:
mil press 3x5
chin or pullup 3x5
day 3 repeat 1
next week start with day 2 etc etc etc
