    Fucking awesome book. Best training guide on any subject I've ever read. Tons of good advice for a beginner, helped me learn to do cleans with good form, A+++. would buy again, etc etc and further nutriding.

    Better site - http://www.startingstrength.com/


    Also, search function. Been mentioned quite a few times. :icon_spid
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    In short, yes. The starting strength program is designed to bring trainees up to an intermediate level of strength. If you have not established a base strength in the basic lifts that get you strong quick, squats, deadlifts, bench press, press, and barbell rows amongst many others. It’s worth your time and effort. Especially, considering it only is three times a week for one hour max. To paraphrase Mark Ripptoe, establishing a base strength allows the athlete to express the full power of the movement in the sport. Also, martial arts are huge on the core. This is always being worked in this program. I gained twenty pounds of muscle in 3.5 months. Just make sure to limit other activity. It’s demanding on your CNS if you try to do too much at once. If you get ahead of yourself here soon you will burn out and not reach your potential on this beginning strength training program. Also, it’s all about diet, at least 1 gram of protein per pound of bw each day and many calories, at least your body weight times 18 for adequate recovery. When you have a question regarding strength training as it pertains to sport performance look no further than Mark Ripptoe. I own his book Practical Programming and starting strength.
    Keep in mind to get the right results on this program means cutting other heavy things out like hiit sessions and other exercises that place high demand on the cns.
    Good luck man
