I am a former football player and boxer. I was a personal trainer - specialty was athletes - in my late teens and early 20s. I have spent the last 15 years training mainly young athletes outside of my boring desk job.

When I answer a question it is because I have experience with the topic. I am not looking at writing a term paper for you with references from scientific journals. Often the studies in these journals happen in a bubble. We do not live in a bubble.

Also from my experience I have one piece of advice - everyone is different, everyone reacts different to different training methods, everyone has their medical issues/vulnerabilities, everyone reacts different to diet plans, everyone has a the ability or inability to do certain things naturally, everyone has predisposed genetic traits that enable or hinder them from doing certain things.

Also I was very very lucky as a teenager. I had a world class football/weightlifting coach. Reason why our school won state weightlifting tourney 20 years and counting. EVERYTHING in SS he was doing in the early 90s. We would do nothing but deadlift, squat, bench, pull-ups... every day... we hated him. But god we got big quick. SS is common sense for those who have experienced a good program. However I feel it kind of leaves most of the population hanging. What do I do once my deadlift hits 700 pounds? Is that even good for me? You know what I'm saying?

@MDMoore313 - I don't disagree with any of the points you make. Much more suitable for coaches than novices. I was just trying to convey that the weightlifting newbie or novice is literally almost the entire population. If you know what you are doing in the weight room and can decipher a bad squat from good you are in the 1%. I know have fellow coaches that have spent years in the weight room that I wouldn't trust teaching my kids.
