    How did you like it? Good size gains?

    I've been on the starr routine for over a year (did two cycles of a periodized one recently) and saw good strength gains, but can't say much for size. Recently I switched from parallel to ATG squats and used to much weight too fast I guess, my knees are busted and I can't squat like I used to. If I'm squatting in the 315+ range would knee wraps be a good investment (atleast temporarily)?

    i'm on gvt right now and about to switch routines in a few weeks. been doing it for ~10 weeks. i've gained ~17 lbs. most of it lbm. not carrying any water weight.

    i really enjoyed the program, although i feel like my max strength didn't move a ton. this is probably just because i've forgotten how to put max effort into the exercise, and i feel i let the bar drift away from me too far on deadlifts.

    look into ovt as well, which seems to be pretty decent.

    no, it's because the loading used to do 10 sets of 10 reps is insufficient for improving maximum strength
