I dont see any deadlifting or squats in his routines
He does some deadlifting his his hamstring vids here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Noa32Ize-M0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vO2-hx6m1hw
albeit the stiff-legged variety which I guess won't make the powerlifting community hot for him.
Squats: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_2JPn6gbKM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-D7Hv4L1F60
A quote from scoobys site:
"4/6/2011 Reworked all my workout plans, the beginning workout plan, the intermediate workout plan, the advanced workout plan, and I also added an advanced intermediate workout plan."
You will note the date, then you will also note the original date from this thread (23rd September 2010) a full NINE months. Scoody has added Deadlifts to his Advanced routines only scince then.
As for the squat videos, all he does is bang on about why you shouldn't do squats. Oh....and if you seriously think you are going to build swole legs from "Skateboard Squats"......go grab a skateboard kid.
surely he needs to stretch?
He probably does, I don't remember if he's addressed it in videos, I think it's come up now and then. Oh here we go, a hamstring stretching video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpJab7LcbxE
Well, i'm glad you found that. A shiny example of someone stretching something and no real idea why he's doing it. Back pain....maybe he should do less crunches, or build up his glutes, or strengthen his lower back with some squats. Some real deadlifts might even give him some hammies to stretch.
Experienced lifters wont listen to this
Oh? Why not?
See my above replies.
beginners are going to waste time on loads of isolation work.
Scooby does advocate compound movements, he has vids for presses and pull ups. For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_vw0P8EVwQ
A lot of beginners spend time on isos anyway, scooby's not at fault for giving input on how he thinks they should be done. He doesn't promote only isos, so I don't see the problem.
Yes, we know you don't see the problem, like you dont see the problem in bumping old threads when clearly the other members here would prefer you to start a new one.
Scooby's hardly promoting the benefits of getting a proper strength foundation though...is he! I dont think Starr or Ripptoe have much to worry about.
