comment How do I squat if I can't keep my heels on the floor?
@Kate That test looks cool, what are some expected values? All I've found is that <10 cm is considered restricted.

comment Compound, total body exercises minimising quad and ham development
I've heard that the "Greyskull LP" program is designed to focus more on upper-body while using the same concepts as SS. Check it out.

comment What exercises would make up the minimum, complete, general fitness workout?
@HerrKaputt If you check the SS wiki, they have an alternative program with pull-ups. I believe it's taken from the "Practical Programming" book. Additionally, there's a program that's "actually taught by Rippetoe at the gym" and I believe that one also includes pull-ups.

@DaveLiepmann Yeah, I tend to agree on the pistols actually. Once you "get it" they're no longer a challenge (source: I've been able to do a pistol for the last 5 years or so, and I don't consider myself very strong).

Do you feel that just rings would be enough? Pull-ups/muscle-ups for pulling, pushups/dips for pressing and pistols for the legs? V-ups can be added for extra core work. (Rings instead of just bar as they allow a worthwhile pressing movement)

comment Does warmup volume have a detrimental effect on working set?
Personally, I'd just start with the bar, and add ~20 kg until I reach the target weight. Maybe I'd stretch the last "jump" to 25 or 32.5 or however-much I need; once the difference gets too big I'd add in another warmup set.

How much are you lifting (ballpark)?

comment Effects of wearing gloves
Why not just wrap something around the bar instead of wearing gloves (like a towel)? That's the usual method I hear about for improving gripping strength.
