What's up with the backdown sets? Just a finisher or what?
Since you're admin (which basically means GOD OF WBB ) now, I was wondering what you'd think about making a sticky on proper program progression? There seems to be a lot of talk lately on people asking if they are "right" for one routine or the other, and although we have stickies detailing good beginner programs, maybe it'd be easier to have a sticky detailing what to do after finishing one program.
For example, you could do this:
Newbs/Beginners (0-6 months training with a # Bench/ # Squat/ # Deadlift)
Foundation Routine: Starting Strength or Hardgainer
Intermediates (1-3 years experience with a # Bench/ # Squat/ # Deadlift)
Strength Routine: Madcow 5x5
Hypertrophy Routine: HCT-12
And so on....
Maybe it shouldn't have its own sticky, but it could be nice to add it to one of the existing stickies. I casually looked over the stickies and don't see anything like this. Hopefully something like this could cut down on the (I bench 95#s, is DC right for me?) questions.
