For those of you that have read NROL and starting strength, which do you think has better routines. I've been doing the NROL routines now for about 6 months, and I have been getting some great gains from it. The routines are INTENSE. Every time I come home from the gym, my ass is WHOOPED. After reading a lot about the popularity of the Bill Starr and Ripptoe routines though, I'm starting to think that the NROL routines may be a bit overkill.

The Ripptoe routine has only 3 lifts per workout, and it has only 1 set of deadlifts. It just simply doesn't seem like enough especially with only 1 set of deads, but everyone here says it's a great workout. I'm just wondering what everyones thoughts are.
