i'm considering switching from stronglifts to starting strength because i fucking hate doing rows. however i also don't want to try doing power cleans. what does /fit/ think of practical programming for strength training?
3x5 Bench press / Press (Alternating)
Chin-ups: 3 sets to failure or add weight if completing more than 15 reps
3x5 Press / Bench Press (Alternating)

Pull-ups: 3 sets to failure or add weight if completing more than 15 reps
It IS completely possible to learn powercleans as a dyel fag, as I did
Read the chapter at least twice
watch the SS video multiple time
take it slowly and concentrate on form first
and you can learn it too
as >>31778558 said, they are really enjoyable when you know how to do them
and expect traps DOMS at first even with an empty barebell, and traps gains later
Just do the cleans man. They're actually really fun. Just load up the barbell with the smallest rubber weights you can and try it. Practice the the pull, hang clean, maybe front squat, and then practice putting them together. When you can do it smoothly, try adding 5 lbs. It'll take a few sessions but it's not that hard. I really regret waiting months to try them.
Just do any other kind of row, rows actually don't matter much in SL. Your main goal in SL is upping your squat max. Secondary goal, up your DL and bench. Then you should try to up your OHP and rows.
I'd recomend continue with SL switching pendlay rows for dumbell rows if you hate them so much, then after finishing SL (5x5, 3x5 and 1x5 phases), do Candito's linear Strength/Hypertrophy programming (which is basically an upper/lower with two days of intensity and two days of volume and lots of customization).
been to the doctor and apparently it's not a slipped disc. so i guess once i recover i'll carry on with SL with pendlay rows instead.
what exercises should i do in the meantime? stuff that doesn't use the lower back. gonna do some curls, what else? chinups?
>Dude you are supposed to do pendlay rows in SL.
yeah i looked up the difference after posting that and realised i'd already been doing pendlay rows. i'll do normal bent over rows.
>Let me guess, you pulled a back muscle?
he didn't say. just prescribed me some painkillers and anti-inflammatories and said it should be sorted within 4 weeks.

fuck iostream and it's awful syntax. printf master race

But but... ROWS ARE SO AWESOME OP
