When you saw the squats in the video, your first thought was "oh yea, looks exactly like a Starting Strength squat"?

No I was responding to Action Jeff's statement:

"Srsly, I'd like to squat as well as possible, to assist sporting activities as well as for my general enjoyment."

Re: ****Official Beginner Question Thread****

I decided I wanted to start lifting again, being single for the first time in 4 years will do that to you. I went back to what I know, starting strength, but that's just not going to work for me. I did my first day on a Saturday, tried to do day 2 on Wednesday and was still far too sore. I work in lawncare, I push a spreader 10-12 hours a day and probably walk double digit miles each day doing so on uneven ground. My legs don't get any rest, so squats and deadlifts just aren't really in the cards for me right now. What's a good program for just generally feeling and looking better that doesn't involve heavy lower body work? I don't have any goals in particular, although I am cutting a bit right now. I just want to lose some weight, not lose muscle, getting stronger would be nice, looking better is really the top goal.

Re: ****Official Beginner Question Thread****

Was it just DOMS that you felt or something other?

I don't agree that you should not squat and DL. Assuming you are physically conditioned to what you are doing at work, your body will adapt to squatting and DLing.

You might want to try just following the same basic layout for SS but squat once a week and DL once a week. Start with low weights and add less weight per work out. Add in some basic accessory work. Keep your volume low.

After that, with all the walking you do, I wouldn't think you need to do anything but adjust your intake to drop body fat and look better.

I'm wondering about your shoes, do you have ones from runners store that are like pillows under your feet? Also I assume there are runners' message boards who will be better able to advise.

Re: ****Official Beginner Question Thread****

It could be that it's that simple, last week was my first full week back at work and my first week lifting. Trying to do both at once might've just been a bit too much. I'd MUCH prefer to be able to do SS and include lower body stuff. Maybe I'll just give it a little longer to get re-accustomed to this line of work and then try again.

Nah I was actually running in my OG reebok nano 1.0s, so probably not the best footwear for the job

Pain went away after a few days of going easy on my feet. I've been able to squat and deadlift with no problem but will give it a bit more time before jogging again.

Thanks for the input all
