comment How to prepare for exercise at high altitude?
Great answer, thanks. I'm assuming that my morning coffee doesn't qualify as a "high dose of caffeine"? If it does, I could be in trouble...

I guess it would be called a back squat.

No, doing them on different days.

So if I started alternating press and bench press you wouldn't see a problem?

Yes I have intentionally left out power cleans. I'm hoping to include them at some point down the road, but I'd like to get someone who knows what they are doing to help me make sure i'm doing them correctly. The workout above is not in the book as far as I can tell. The closest version would be on page 296 of the 3rd edition. The one I posted is from the Starting Strength website. You can get to it through the link I posted.

Alright, well you're not the first person I've heard about the Starting Strength program from, so i think I will give that a shot. Thanks for all your help!

@DaveLiepmann, I have updated with starting weight/current weight. I've been doing this for about 2 months. It seems like I am making good progress in the stuff I do every day. I feel like I'm getting stronger, but still no weight gain. This is typical of what has happened in the past when I worked out.
