And before everyone shouts, "READ THE FUCKING FAQ!!!", I have and this is'nt covered. Starting Strength OR Practical Programming? The main differance I can see is that in SS there are no Pull-Ups, just Squat, Dead, Bench and Powercleans. In PP, the Powercleans are replaced by Pull-Ups. So is one routine better than the other, given that both are Rippetoe's or is it just a matter of taste wether you prefer to Clean or Pull-Up?
