r/fitness vs?

This is the final battle, which is the better workout routine? This one recommended on /r/fitness or the Starting Strength/Stronglifts ones recommended in the sticky?

This one seems fairly similar to SL the main difference is that on the Deadlift day you do Chin-ups instead of Squats again. Is this an improvement or a setback?

    IST also has its own grayskull variation, which is what the routine you posted essentially is

      If you still following a IST or a fucking redditors "program" after 3 months of lifting, without coming up with your own, your not gonna make it

      i like how neither of you gays bothered to answer any of the questions

        He did, the both fucking suck and anyone who actually lifts more than 3 months and has a chance at making it should’ve figured out their own routine by then

      Whats the difference to Phraks version? Lat raises and close grip bench? Cant see too much of a difference here

        Phrak's version is designed to balance pulling and pressing on horizontal and vertical planes. Equal amounts of chinups as there are overhead press, same for row and bench. If anything you should probably be doing more rows and chinups than you are pressing movements, but beginners tend to have a fixation with the bench press

        What i never understood about gslp is why wouldn't you alternate Squats and Deadlifts? The Squats are gonne progress so much faster, if you do them twice as often, right?

        The creator of GSLP believed deadlifting more than once a week was excessive for beginners. In my opinion, you need more than this simply for the practice and form refinement alone, but GSLP is very much an upper-body focused strength program

        I would say squats is better because it's more stimulus for an amount of fatigue that a beginner can easily manage.
        I also don't think the order of the exercises being changed helps. Squat push pull works really well.
        I also don't know if the amrap set is really a good idea during linear progression where the entire point is to find the intensity at which a given (and therefore ideally fixed) volume stimulus produces adaptation
        The reddit guide snarkily says all of this has been deboonked, presumably by basedence, but provides no citations for that

        The point of AMRAP sets is mainly for a more effective deloading procedure. When you take ~10% of the bar, you should be hitting new rep PRs and make progress that way even with lower weight https://www.strongerbyscience.com/making-your-novice-strength-training-routine-more-effective-two-quick-tips/

    While IST has unbridled levels of autism, at least some of the people here actually lift. r/fitness seems to be the ultimate normie hub
