    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    You end up doing lots of sets, but the warmups are that - to get your joints and muscles warm and ready for the work sets. If the warm ups start effecting the work sets, your doing too many or with too much weight. I did lots of them cause I'm old(ish), but you rest a minute or three between sets so it's not so bad. Makes the total workout tonnage numbers nice and high too if you're tracking them.

    Maybe start with like....what's fundamentally special about the number 5?
    This...



    but dude - you should own the "Starting STR" book. It's gold. Hell, as soon as I get the 2nd edition I can send you the older one I've got now.

    Oh and before we get into the definition of power debate again, he uses "strength" when talking about limit strength - moving a large weight slowly (think powerlifter) and uses "power" to describe moving a weight quickly and 'explosively' (think OLY lifting).

    I got my Ross books. I have a feeling starting strength is never going to show (bought off amazon private individual).

    At any rate here is what I have
    DAY - A
    Bench
    Barbell Row
    Squat
    Hyperextensions
    Side Rows (for judo throws)
    Calf Raises

    DAY - B
    Squats (@75%)
    Military Press
    Deadlifts
    PullUps
    Reverse Calf Raises (for cosmetics)
    Reverse Curls (for gripping)
    Bicep Curls

    Day - C
    Bench
    Barbell Rows
    Squats
    Lunges
    Dips
    Triceps


    I do abs and cardio whenever I can (a few times a week) and do the over and around the head with the weight plate for rotator cuff stretching and strength.

    I finished my first week and see how this works. I am still working out exactly what my 5RM is. Thanks again for everyone's input. I am sure I will have more questions.
    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.
