    Do I just have to accept the fact of my whole body being sore everyday and just lift anyway? Doesn't seem like you get much recovery time :dunno:

    and stretch. I felt that way after the first 2 workouts. The day after doing GM's for the first time I could barely walk. The key for me was stretching for 15mins after every workout. I already had the water intake and the amount of sleep I needed.

    Of course you will still be sore moving in certain directions, that comes with working out. But it won't be bothersome or regularly noticeable.

    Is the Bill Starr a good routine for someone who has been working out each body part twice a week for about 6 months?

    OR is it "strictly" a beginner type routine?

    It's better for the former. For a complete beginner i wouldn't recommend it.

    Look in your english book for "former" and "latter".

    I think a 3x a week full body workout is the best for a person just starting out

    Yeah, nobody has ever done a bit of a modified 5x5 with base in the starr routine.

    Who the fuck are you, anyway? :ugh:

    If you're a newb, probably. You're body should adjust some though. It will get used to it.


    I personally don't have much soreness on the 5x5 because my muscle are used to a much higher volume.
