I'm not really sure what the alternative is...
Yeah I see people saying 'it's not about how much you lift, it's about how much you look like you lift' and I think to myself, well if you can't lift much at all how the hell are you going to look like you lift anything?
I notice people make the best noob gains when they get on a solid program with linear progression that focuses on the 3 big lifts, and I'm new to the iron game. It sucks that people waste their time because they don't keep it simple and focus on getting strong but I guess it's not my problem.
