Starting Strength is by far your best bet.
there's a starting strength program? i thought it was all how to's which i already know.. i'll check the link out again..
thanks! wonder if it's on itunes. much faster for me to get it that way since i live in asia. i'll look into it for sure.
squats from a power rack wasn't as hard as i initially thought. i'm getting one for home use. maybe also a bench press (the contraption i saw kinda had the bench built in already but yeah freeweights still).
also everyone keeps telling me i should do something else like dropsets or something when they see me doing my 5x5 LOL!
