    Hey guys, just wanted to ask you about strength routines.

    I know that most popular beginner strength routines are SS and SL. I did SS for some time a year ago. I made some results, but I was bored of it. Are there any other good strength routines for a beginner? Which one did you liked the most? I know you shouldn't fix what isn't broken and SS worked really good for me, but i'm thinking of trying anything else, besides i can always switch back to SS.

    "50/20" is a kind of EDT. I love it, and wrote it up here:

    One point is that it is not a complete programme, it is is a means of programming an individual lift- it covers sets/reps/progression. I personally think that that is one of its benefits. Very handy to have a way of programming pretty much any lift. But as a beginner, you typically want a template as well as sets/reps/progression.

    I was doing All Pro SBR and I was gaining strength very quickly but one good hard arm bar took care of that. I would highly recommend the program.

    a guy here on sherdog reccomended me a variation of SS where you do chin ups or pull ups instead of power cleans.

    I always loved to do chins so im in love with it.

    Squat Press Pull. That there is a great foundation for any beginner program.

    Damn. I haven't thought about Bryce Lane in years. He was way ahead of the trends with his powerlifting, calisthenics and mobility work. 10 years ago I never would have thought I'd be jumping from weights to cals and flexibility.
