put the book on the floor, get butt naked, get under the bar and do a squat with your new form. at the bottom of the squat, take a shit on the book. done.

just kidding, i actually like starting strength.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

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

No! Do you like it (SSBT or...) as a staff, record label or as a mother fucking crew?

idk, i guess as a general intro to exercise technique you could do a lot worse. it hasn't worked for you at all and i know lots of people have issues with the squat form he teaches but i remember it being helpful when i read it ~3 years ago. the sections on OHP and dead lift, especially.

but yeah, do the pooping thing.
