I had a long talk today with my young sometimes training partner, Q. He has lifted with me off and on for over a year, and has made some gains. He is starting to train without me sometimes, since our schedules don't always sync. He's been doing 5/3/1 (what can I say? He's had misleading advice; mine!) I asked if he feels he's ready for something new, and talked about some of the things I've been learning. He has fairly clear goals and priorities. He said that he'd be willing to do some reading and thinking, so I'm sending him some links. I don't want him to do anything just because I'm doing it, or because I like it, but want him to be committed to his own training and learning.
I thought that the "Training to Fail" series would be a good place to start. Is there any other article that explains the basic GUS philosophy any more concisely? I also thought the SDT article and the SDT FAQ would be good for him. Any other suggestions? What did you find most helpful when you were starting out here?
