Did you mean to specify Crossfit, the branded exercise regimen?

comment Looking for weight lifting program for person with joint problems
A better approach than "find a program" is "find what the problem is" and fix the problem. Something specific (or a combination of somethings) is causing specific joint pain. Do you stretch your wrists? Warm them up before benching? Investigate the problem in depth instead of bailing entirely for a new field.

How much do you weigh? It sounds like you have a maximum of ~50kg to lift, which is just not going to be sufficient for most people to sustain a challenge.

comment Complete and minimal flexibility workout?
@Aequitas I mean the latter. What works now will stop working. What you need and are able to do now is different from what you will need and will be able to do later. It's not all just doing the same stretches further. Learning and variety are necessary.

comment I really just want to cut and lose weight, while lifting, what should my expectations be?
Well, that's not at all what I read from "When in doubt, push the main lift and do assistance work based on however you might feel that day." and "choice of assistance lift pales in importance to the proper execution and loading of the key lifts." Different strokes I guess.

"Most of the progress in these methodologies comes from accessory lifts" I don't think that's the case. My point about volume still stands, for instance with regards to form practice. Regardless, from reading people's advice and experience, I'm losing confidence in 5/3/1 as a template for body recomp. It's possible that Wendler's recommendation to combine assistance with a metcon/circuit is the right direction but I'm losing confidence.

I'm not sure I agree that 5x5 is small volume, and I'm not sure what is unreasonable or against research about decreasing volume in order to increase max strength. It's also weird that these criticisms apply even more so to 5/3/1, which has less volume, uses a decrease in volume to allow increase in poundage on the bar, and is just about exactly the same "minimalism" in terms of exercise selection.

How does SL create an unhealthy mindset and develop poor technique? And what blatantly wrong assumptions is it based on?
