I recently moved, so my very convenient access to a gym with always-available power rack and bumper plates has now vanished. Earlier in the year, I started the Stronglifts protocol, and switched over to Starting Strength later in the summer. I'm still a "beginner", however, as I'm still seeing relatively easy gains and am not yet up to squatting 1.5x my body weight.
Unfortunately, there are no nearby gyms that offer bumper plates and power racks for me to easily continue the Starting Strength programming. I don't want to MacGuyver the workouts by using the wrong equipment, so I can either add 40 minutes to my drive each day by heading to the nearest gym one town over that does have the right equipment, or I can shell out the money for the equipment at home. That latter option would be appealing if it weren't for the fact that the equipment is rather expensive, and would sit in my unheated garage where it's pretty cold in the winter (i.e. I'd be lifting in the cold). The advantage to the latter option is that, if I can endure the cold temperature, the equipment is so accessible I'd religiously get my three weekly workouts in (i.e. I'd have no excuse not to workout).
If I took either route, I'd try to do some MovNat work or tabata/interval-style sprinting sessions here and there on non-lifting days. Nothing with heavy weights, but just to keep up my mobility and fast-twitch muscle fibers.
The other option is to forget about Starting Strength entirely and join a local Crossfit box, which seems like it's well regarded locally. It seems, however, that Crossfit is far more beneficial to those who already have a great strength foundation, and I don't consider that to be the case with me, yet.
I considered doing both and just lifting twice a week and doing Crossfit once or twice per week, but everything I've read seems to suggest that messing with the Starting Strength programming will diminish strength gains. (Starting Strength recommends only lifting thrice in a week, with no lifts outside the main five that are part of the protocol.)
If you were in my shoes, which route would you go? I consider all the options to be fairly "functional" as far as the end result goes, only each with trade-offs regarding strength vs conditioning/endurance.
