    Brent Carter: hey I have a quick question regarding training, Iím currently running Texas method Iíve been on it since December. I only ran the lp novice 3 months as Ive been lifting for 6 years experience, I just started learning the ss squat method from my friend who put me on to it. Form and technique getting better, but my question is Iím current 5í6@135 and squatting 5x5@275 idk if I should scratch Texas and pursue HLM? Or do I start from complete scratch and do a novice LP for an entire year or will that not work? Not sure what to do looking for your help, value your opinion thank you.

    If you can lift moderately heavy (for you) recover and do it again a little heavier 48-72hours later you are a novice and should be doing the novice program. Once doing the novice LP you don't stop doing it based on a certain time frame. You stop doing the novice LP when you simply can't keep doing the novice LP.

    Also you are underweight.... Significantly underweight.

    Where should I start with weights? I agree about body weight too. How much rest between sets?

    How much should I start out at? Weight wise. I also agree with underweight Iím terrible with dieting. Just so Iím clear in my understanding of your response, even having 6 years exp without ss method youíd say just start out at lp ?

    If you're serious about improving form and technique you need to post videos of your lifts or get a coach to critique them in person.

    Titrate weight up to where the bar speed starts to slow down just a little. You rest the ammount of time between sets it takes to get the next set. All of this is in the book which I highly encourage you get and read if you really want to make the most of this.

    Thank you so much Brent! The books been helpful both pp and ss which I have they just donít cover that part about whether experienced lifters should still do lp or not, it wasnít just not credited to my understanding and you made it clear. So thank you again
