    Book Review: Starting Strength

    This is a simple book. How to lift weights for strength. It covers 5 lifts. Squat, bench press, deadlift, press, and the clean. No machines, no gimmicks, just those exercices a squat rack and an Olympic weight set.

    What makes this book so awesome is the depth it goes into for each lift, the mechanics, the perfectly laid out techniques. It's more than just a good training book, it's one of the best instructional books of any type I've ever read. I've had several people, and two different personal trainers teach me how to squat. This book still helped me improve my technique and understanding.

    Buy it now. it's fantastically good.

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    The coaching in that book is a thing of wonder.

    Another 5-star rating from me. It's freaking awesome. Rippetoe (author) posts on Crossfit.com pretty often too.
