What did you use for your lower body? Are we really talking no equipment--could you build or buy some?

comment What muscle groups are used in olympic lifting?
Why do you want to lift weights? To be big, to hang around with bodybuilders, to be strong, for health, for recreation, for sport...?

comment Are there papers about Starting Strength or Strong lifts?
As far as I know papers and studies don't really get written on specific popular exercise routines. However, linear progression is based on the SAID principle and supercompensation, which are good terms to research.

@GetFitChimp My understanding is that the best ways to increase bone density are load-bearing exercise (squats, deadlifts, etc) and impact (jumping, running). The 65-year-old osteoporitic lady can be convinced like anyone else: by researching it, by taking my word for it, or by trying it.

When you say 3 compound lifts, do you mean squat/bench/deadlift?

@Kate More answers are always better; I'd be interested to see how you phrase similar ideas.

What program are you on? What's your goal--strength, athletics, appearance? How many reps are in each set? What kind of rest periods are you aiming for? How much weight are we talking about?
