Starting Strength Question
Since the Starting Strength program doesnt really have anything for the back (deads and cleans do hit it, but compared to pullups/chinups, they're nothing) I wanted to know if you would be better off adding pullups to the routine, or doing them on off days? And if you add them to the routine, before or after total body? I know the book says assistance exercises should be done later, by themselves, but from the way it sounded, he was only talking about isolation exercises, pullups/chinups are far from that.

Rippetoe is a big advocate of pull-ups - he's a 3 x 15 kind of guy, after which he wants you to add weight. Do them after squat, dead, press, bench.
