MARK RIPPETOE – STARTING STRENGTH
The author forms a simple, logical, and practical approach to strength training. The updated third edition expands and improves on the previous teaching methods and biomechanical analysis.
“Strong people are harder to kill than weak people, and more useful in general,” says Rippetoe.
The big problem with barbell training is that the majority of people don’t know how to do it correctly, even if they’ve been training for years. Because every aspect of bar movement is controlled by the lifter, barbell training requires an investment in time and education. Starting Strength addresses that issue.º
The book explains every aspect of the basic compound barbell exercises. Starting Strength is an excellent programming method that allows you to get back to basics and build formidable strength and technique from the ground up.
