^^ the only thing with the starr 5x5 or others is that its set up for progressive load. Which only works if you can make it to the gym regularly. I've had great strength gains from it, but its something you need time and programing for.
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.
