  1. Hi all, I'm following the SL 5x5 program for the time being and I hate rows. Beyond just disliking them, I am always worried my form is incorrect and don't feel like the light weights where I can maintain really solid form (95# and under, essentially) are really doing a whole lot for me. My understanding is that - along with other differences - Starting Strength programming utilizes the power clean in place of the pendlay row. My thought would be maintaining the volume of 5x5 and the remainder of the programming, but switching out 5x5 rows for 5x3 Power Cleans, and perhaps adding back extens
  2. So I've been thinking about swapping power cleans in for barbell rows, but I'm a little hesitant to try them without coaching. because the movement is so complex. The instructions in Starting Strength seem to go against everything I know about lifting weights, but Rippetoe obviously has more experience with them then I will ever have, but I've also seen in a couple of places people saying that Rip's version of the Power Clean is wrong. It's the "jump" part that seems weird to me. Am I just overthinking it?
