    Mr. Rippetoe,

    Could you please let me: 48 years old, 5'9 and 190.lbs, know the best way to train to get strong as you say:

    a person doesn't need to do high reps, quoting you from your aesthetics and training article:
    "Even advanced lifters don't need to do 8s or 10s, certainly not 12s or 20s. I did all that shit, and it was a waste of time and youth."

    a person doesn't need assistance/isolation exercises, quoting you from your bodybuilding mythology article:
    "You don't have to do wrist curls and seated calf raises to grow forearms and calves you just have to squat, bench press, deadlift, press, and do some chins, since forearms and calves are also working in these movements. You don't have to babysit your soleus or your brachioradialis to keep them in perfect proportion to your gastrocnemius or your biceps long head your skeleton does this for you."

    I want to get as big and strong as my genetics allow and then become a Professional Barbell Coach. It's confusing when Andy Baker says to do squats, presses, bench presses, and deadlifts with isolation exercises for 2-15 reps to fully develop a person's physique. Sometimes I tell myself that bodybuilding ruined my life and to sell insurance full-time.

    Thank you

    I don't understand your question.

    Buy the book, read the book, then read the book again.

    I don't know. I don't think Mark Rippetoe has ever given a conclusive answer to such a complicated, many layered question. Perhaps if we are lucky, and if he has time, he might publish a small pamphlet or something illustrating his thoughts. But I wouldn't hold my breath.
