"good judgment to know who to take advice from"

Same is true of choosing trainers.

See, it's a Catch 22. If you know nothing, you need a good PT. But if you know enough to be able to judge a good one, then you don't need one.

There is a lot of truth to that.

I also think there is something to good judgement (of somebody's knowledge and intellect) even if don't know a tremendous amount about the topic yourself, but that's really beyond the scope of this thread.

Suffice it to say that there is a lot of conflicting info out there, and you are right that it is hard for beginners to know who to take advice from because they don't have much experience themselves.

I would say read Starting Strength very carefully and watch rippetoe videos on squatting , deadlifits, pressing, and bench pressing on youtube. You will learn enough about the lifts that you will be able to ask a prospective trainer enough questions to see if he has any idea what they are talking about

I don't think you should put too much stock in the way rippetoe squats. It's just not the cool way. Kind of lamest way to squat, absolutely. That's why it's all 250lb chubby white men with ponytails.

Lol, I'm guessing this is facetious. Im certainly no squat expert and don't claim to know which bar positions are superior but given that the typical squatter I see uses a smith machine and rarely gets within a foot of parallel I think it's surely a terrific alternative for a beginner
