    that's all? I saw it, but I didn't know if there was anything I should add to it. It sounds simple enough, which increases the likelihood I'll do it consistently lol

    Use the warm up protocols (For every lift) as described in the book.


    Post workout you can do whatever stretches you like. I usually do 5-15 minutes of stretching afterwards.

    Prior to the workout yes. Afterwards you can do whatever you like. You might also want to stretch out your shoulders prior to squatting. Low bar squats used to annoy my shoulders before.

    i usually do a couple minutes of dynamic lower body stretching (high knees, butt kicks, body weight squats etc..) and a dynamic shoulder stretch. nothing fancy but something to get my joints ready. And then like mentioned above, a bit of static stretching after the workout.

    Just to add to the already good advice here, when doing SS pay special attention to your hips, they're going to suffer the most.

    I do a lot of hip activation stuff, foam rolling, dynamic warmups. And after lifting I repeat and do static stretching.

    Shoulder dislocates with a towel or broomstick are also very helpful.

    I am currently doing Madcows (very similar to SS) and I did SS for a few months, one key thing for me was every off day I did/do hamstring stretches, glute stretches, and specially adductor/hip stretches. I do a couple body squats and then hold 2 squats all the way at the bottom for about 2 minutes each. When I don't do them for a few off days I can feel my hips soooo tight
    "I'd cut school to go to the gym, 'Oh I'll cut school, I gotta go to sleep, cus I gotta go to the gym tonight to squat, it's a leg day' you know, and if I gotta die tonight, if I gotta die tonight, if this weight is gonna kill me tonight, then so be it. If I meet the end of the world tonight, I'm in the place that I wanna be, right here in the gym."
