Hmm well after reading a ton a stuff, it seems SS is way too good to pass up. It'll probably take me a while to get the money to pay for everything though (barbell + however many weights I need + squat rack + bench). And should I invest the money into weightlifting shoes? And one last thing, a lot o...

All I really have at the moment are 2 dumbbells with an assortment of plates...sadly.

And I've never seen someone hijack their own thread before haha The sarcasm isn't neccesary. =\ I wasn't being sarcastic at all, Iron. Why would I be a d*ck to someone I'm asking/receiving help from? I do apologize to you and to anyone else that reads it and finds it offensive though...I just found...

An equivalent to SS with equipment/spotter limitations?

The SS program looks really awesome, but due to uneasy access to a gym, and the downside of not knowing anyone at the moment that would be interested to group up/be a spotter and what not. Soooo, I am curious if anyone knows of any really good and time tested workouts/programs like SS, just without ...

I understand the process of exercising, but could you explain how intaking more calories (besides protein) actually increases body/muscle weight? Also on that list, sleep is probably the hardest one. I hate sleeping, and being a college student, its hard to goto bed early as well lol. That's the fir...

Sunlight as the main sourse of Vitamin D is another. I absolutely love it how ExRx's site breaks down the micronutrients into what they do and where to get it from. Like how it says just 5 min a day of sunlight on your hands and face is enough Vitamin D for the day, and you can even store more of i...

I keep hearing meat is bad for you, meat is good for you, you should only eat poultry, lean beef is fine, etc etc... ...What do most nutri...
