      This is technically a book.

    2. Tharkûn says:

      Summary: This book is essemtially a novice weightlifting program that is brilliant in its flexibility, and one of the best novice programs out there.The Greyskull LP is program based around a 2 or 3 day a week routine consisting of 4 major compound barbell movements, alternating at 2 movements per day. It has two key distinguishing characteristics1. The way the sets for the core lifts are done ( the last set is done AMRAP, or, for as many reps as possible). This is psychologically rewarding, and [...]

    3. Ari Consul says:

      Some mildly useful content and a few good ideas but reads mostly like a self-congratulatory promotion for the author's coaching business. As others state, Mark Rippetoe's collection is still the standard and others would do well with the StrongLifts 5x5.

    4. Viktor says:

      I'm not sure why this is even a book. While the Greyskull LP programme certainly looks promising - mainly because of the rip-off from Mark Rippentoe's Starting Strength, the author does not seem qualified to write this book. Further, he makes sweeping generalizations, insults readers who are interested about reading about proper technique beyond just learning-by-doing. The author also conveys a lot of stereotypes and comes off as if he didn't bother to actually research what he is writing about. [...]

    5. Matt Richbourg says:

      Most weight training programs, especially those for new lifters looking to gain strength, are specific sets of one-size-fits-all instructions of how many exercises, how many times per week. This book, on the other hand, lays out a template with multiple modules that can be plugged in based on the user's goals. It explains exactly how and why you would use each tweak, then looks at four different training goals and builds the template in 3-4 different ways for each of them. This isn't the kind of [...]

    6. Daniyal says:

      Has good concepts about AMRAP sets, same thing that Jim Wendler explains in his 5/3/1 book, instead of weight PRs, do rep PRs, which is a much more achievable goal, yet equally tough.Focuses more on building a balanced physique, unlike some other beginner programs where squat is the main focus of every training day.

    7. Matt says:

      Not particularly well written, but the program Shearer offers solves a lot of the problems I've had with Starting Strength. This is worth checking out if you want more programming flexibility, think conditioning should factor in, and think squatting and deadlifting on the same day is dumb.

    8. Diego Petrucci says:

      GreySkull LP is probably the best beginner routine out there (it focuses on both strength and hypertrophy). This book does a good job of outlining it. I still recommend reading Ripetoe's Starting Strength to get the lifting technique right.

    9. Theigbobandit says:

      One of my earlier body building guidance. Wasn't as useful as Mehdi's 5x5 Stronglift though.

    10. MPS says:

      Program seems solid. He needs an editor! Not worth the $30 though IMO. Just Google around and you can get almost everything in the book.
