Not much to say about the subject, but the owner of the site, mehdi, doesn't look like he should be giving anyone advice.




It doesn't even look like he lifts.

GOMAD.
I don't lift for girls, I lift for guys on the internet

OMG YOU GUYS. People are ONLY qualified to give lifting advice if they're HUGE AND JAKT. I would never trust a skinny-ass punk, say, some random dude down in Florida who's trying to pass 150 pounds in the wrong direction, to give me lifting advice. Only a pussy would do that. Am I right?
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
wednesday: fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

I know I said I was gonna take a break from training websites for a bit, but today I found out stronglifts has over 5000 facebook fans, and probably is getting 100k hits a day. Pathetic.

For the marketers, this is proof people want simpler, not necessarily the best

The one thing I do like about mehdi is he is honest about his intentions. He says that his number 1 intention is to make money. And apparently he's doing well at that.

I could care less about the founder. The only reason I ever go there is for the nutrition section. It's laid out really simply and isn't loaded with BS claims. Other than that, I really don't care much for the site.

Actually, stronglifts has no curls or isolation movements.

It's pretty much inspired by Glenn Pendlay's strength workout, which in itself, was a variation of Bill Starr's original program AFAIK (Just like SS is). It's a straight forward 5x5 squat-based program that has you do just compound movements.

It's a great beginner program if you still need to learn the movements. You can switch to 3x5 or one of the SS programs later on when the 5x5 takes too much time to do.

As for his lifts, They're not bad at all. here's a quote from his website:

Quote

I am in no way affiliated with stronglifts. I just think it's a good strength program, though I'm not a big fan of some of the latest blog posts.
"There is never an absolute answer to everything, except of course that you have to do your squats." - Mark Rippetoe :ibsquatting:

Always looking to improve vertical jump.

what's wrong with the 5x5 for begginers like me?

also, some of his articles are kinda informing looking at it from my prospective.

just checking though, are those stats and pic up to date Jc? Just checking bro..

A simpler program works for alot of good genetics type of people imo, I can hear alot of people get resutls at my school doing a program like strong lifts..Actually, I think that the football team does that sort of routine in offseason. I am not there right now due to track. Many football players only do that workout routine, and it works for a lucky few and shows a few results for others.

I have no problem with the program, I have a problem with him acting like it's so easy to get in good shape while he looks like crap. That's like a C student claiming it's easy to get As. It's insulting to those who have actually made progress.
