I feel Power Cleans don't do anything special and there are far better lifts to build strength while being safer and easier to learn. So, I guess if you're one of those guys that says, "Do the program and don't change a thing", then I guess I don't like Starting Strength
Certainly not the "Do the program and don't change a thing" guy, if I was, I would not have asked for feedback.....and even though I still consider myself a beginner, after 1 year, I have learned a few things. One being, everything should be adapted when needed and all programs need to evolve as time goes by.
I value everyone's ideas and thoughts......please keep them coming!

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
