Starting Strength skips stuff like ab work (which you need, squats alone won't do it), says that curls and other "aesthetic" lifts are a waste of time, and advocates rep ranges that aren't ideal for everyone's goals.
It's really a program to get you to a baseline level of fitness, which the book clearly states and which I think it does quite well. The problem is that there are internet zealots that think it's the end-all of workout programs and are very vocal about it. I think it's a great program and one I'd recommend to anyone who is starting from zero, but after a certain point you have to reassess your goals and build a program around them. I also think the basic program needs things like chin-ups, direct ab work, and single leg lifts like lunges, since it has a tendency to build people with huge quads and no stability.
No but I've been lounging in those dry stretch sweats often. I was talking about these cheap things which are always sold out - http://www.uniqlo.com/us/product/men-stretch-slim-fit-tapered-color-jeans-128472.html#32|/men/bottoms/jeans/stretch/|
Isaora makes stretch pants, sorta like jeans? Never seen them.
They also had "leggings" that were like 15% spandex 20% poly or something that I love. I can't find them on the site any more, favorite jeans. Basically like wearing tights but they also look great. Really hoping they re-up them so I can grab a few more pairs to keep on deck.
