Last night I couldn't sleep so I was doing some reading, and came across a battle between Stronglifts and Starting Strength. It was a 30 page thread and fairly interesting.

Anyway, one of the questions rolling around in my head was this:

Would the average guy who "just" wants above average (good/respectable) size and strength:

A) Prefer a rigid system like Stronglifts and Starting Strength that provides results but little variety.

B) Prefer more flexibility and variety (like Wendler's or Dioggcrapp) - a system that equips them with the proper tools (progression and compounds), but allows them to tweek a bit to fit you needs.

Wendler's might not be the best example, but I think you get my point.

All things equal, being equipped with progression and compounds and the other necessary tools to succeed, do YOU prefer a rigid system like SS or SL, or a looser structure with more flexibility?
