    I lost 10 lbs the first couple weeks of doing SS as a 240 lb man. In fact, my weight has never gone beyond the 230-240 range on the program. It is not that difficult.

    This was needed. The kids were starting to act like they knew better than Uncle Rip.

    As a skinny guy, I didn't know when to stop GOMAD and ended up putting on much more fat than I should have. The good thing is that it came off without too much effort.

    What's the expression? "It's simple, not easy." There's a difference.

    135 lb. gain in my squat in 3 months, and that's with a few silly mistakes along the way I could have avoided.

    I would have been too intimidated to do some crazy Men's Health routine with 40 exercises. Heck, I was too intimidated to incorporate the power cleans.

    But just dragging my ass to the gym more or less on schedule has made me very happy and much stronger in 12 weeks, with 5 basic lifts.

    So, um, thanks.

    First time poster but long time lurker here.

    Good article. It should be a reference point to some true novice.

    But, in a way it's kind of sad that all of these need to be explained to such details.

    What happened to the old "just get under the bar" adage?

    I believe this will take care of a certain poster or two who believes the program can only be done by "getting fat."
