comment Overhead presses when hyperlordotic
Sounds very appropriate and will definitely start on your suggestions. Also will notice if I've been initiating with lats and watch elbows as I haven't been noticing. Layback: I can't lean back much more without putting my back in what feels a dangerous position. The lumbar is excessively curved just from standing upright.

Not 100% sure but two health professionals (physio and pilates) have immediately said I am. It's also extremely obvious visually with the protruding gut/bum.

Removed the 'l' from 'Rippletoned'.

No, I didn't realize there was an 'l' and would never take a dig. Respect him greatly for the SS manual. I must have been reading too many digs.

But as the heaviest lifters also weigh the most (even without considering the extra body mass they're lifting as well), would I be right in concluding the beginner * x 5 linear progression programs aim to maximize strength gains without regard for bulking up? Would someone training to maximize strength-to-weight do it alone via diet or a very different lifting routine?

I always imagined cutting phases cut back on the load, but having a quick read around, I can see Bernite wasn't unique in keeping his strength training the same. I think you've convinced me it's time to start reading some programming texts - I've had my eye on those by Rippletoe and Low.

Always helpful, I appreciate it Dave. Thinking about it, most of the guys I see doing heavy squats and deadlifts are tanks, as are the guys in strong man competitions. I'll post another question in an attempt to reconsider my training goals.

Ok, so that sounds like it is possible to aim for a calorie surplus that purely feeds muscle growth rather than being portioned between muscle growth and fat storage. I was thinking by doing cardio or restricting diet that my strength workouts would become less effective.

Pilates and Yoga are completely different.
