    Default Barbells vs Machines vs Everything Else

    by Mark Rippetoe

    *Barbell training is the best way to train for strength. Bar none. Nothing else even comes close to the effectiveness of barbell squats, presses, deadlifts, and the Olympic lifts for the development of strength, power, and muscular size...You should be using them.*

    Great article. The gym I train at has about four (crappy) barbells. I train during the busy lunch hour and most of the time I'm the only one using them. I'd love to print a thousand copies of articles from SS and hand them out. My numbers are not as high as many of the members of these forums but they're the biggest at my gym and I hope to spread the word by example.

    What do you do when you see someone doing quarter front squats with light weight?

    Nothing. I also don't do anything when I see someone walking on a treadmill or doing leg extensions.
