I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment What additional exercises do I add to the Madcow 5x5 program?
I think this answer could get revived and get some answers, but I think it needs more detail on OP's current situation. Then again, I bet the time of usefulness has passed.

comment Trainer told me to do 5 sets of 5 deadlifts. Should I be worried?
To further reinforce the one-set standpoint: Eric Cressey reports that to achieve a 1000 pound deadlift, Andy Bolton "didn't do a lot of sets at his heaviest weights for the day. He worked up to the target weight for the day, but didn't really do multiple sets." ericcressey.com/…

comment Is it advantageous to be fit when young?
If anyone wants to generalize or otherwise edit the question that's fine, but this is a fine question, perfectly answerable, with specific research and terminology for this in the literature.

Only reason I can find is that bodybuilders can put more weight over their heads with seated: tnation.t-nation.com/free_online_forum/…

comment Seated shoulder press vs standing press
I choose standing, for reasons well outlined in Starting Strength: standing is more athletic, requiring full-body balance and strength.

You might also consider ditching the SS model altogether in search of a dumbbell- or kettlebell-oriented program. What are your goals?

comment Which are examples of “higher intensity cardio”?
@YYY definitely toss in your own answer; multiple answers (even if they agree) are helpful just to get different perspectives, phrasing, and to fill in gaps.

comment Benefits of neck extension training?
I think it's just for looks in Greyskull. I remember hearing the author being quoted something like "the neck is the one muscle people can see even if you're in a suit".

comment Trainer told me to do 5 sets of 5 deadlifts. Should I be worried?
@DaveNewton No, as my answer discusses, 1x5 is for work sets, which is distinct from warm-up sets in most nomenclature. Madcow is an exception as far as I can tell; they say to do 4 sets, but only the last one is a work set. And while I'm generally a fan of more programming context, and I'd be happy to see that here, I think it's probably not necessary to know about the rest of his routine.

@DaveNewton Starting Strength, StrongLifts, Madcow, and GreySkull LP (sort of) all use one set of five at the work weight for deadlifts. It's not the whole program, but it's certainly common enough.

While the StrongLifts advice is very applicable to the OP, who is (I assume) a novice, multiple sets are often called for in more advanced programming.
