The wiki about the Starting Strength Novice Barbell Program that anyone can edit


The title "Starting Strength" has two distinct meanings. Firstly it is Starting Strength The Book ( View On Amazon ) by Mark Rippetoe and Lon Kilgore . Secondly it is Starting Strength The Program also by Mark Rippetoe and widely referred to as "Rippetoe's." It is this second meaning of "Starting Strength" that this wiki primarily addresses while acting only as a supplement to "Starting Strength" the book. If you've been hearing about the Starting Strength program and the prospect of increased strength, musculature, bone density and overall wellness is something that you are willing to work hard for, consider this a first step on that path.

This companion video to Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training adds to the impact of the book by demonstrating the correct technique for the squat, press, bench press, deadlift, and power clean as performed by athletes under the direction of Mark Rippetoe. See the most important barbell exercises correctly executed, along with corrections of the most common problems encountered in learning them.

If it is too easy to do the dips with only your bodyweight you can add weight. The workout requires that you lift 3 days a week. This means that you are going to alternate between workout "A" and "B" every workout.

The starting strength workout is designed to give you raw strength. This workout is not going to include any assistance/isolation exercises (bicep curls, shoulder raises, etc). The four exercises in each workout are called compound lifts. That means that they require more then just one muscle group to do the exercise. Stick to the plan and trust this workout, don't add anymore to it (you can add ab exercises; hanging leg raises and weighted sit ups are recommended).

Created by Mark Rippetoe , the Starting Strength program is one of the simplest and most functionally efficient weight training programs available.

The Starting Strength squat, Starting Strength press, and Starting Strength deadlift will be your main staples throughout the program. These are big moves that require lots of energy, especially when lifting heavy. Make sure you understand how to execute the moves with proper form to build a solid foundation and get the most out of your work.

Most of the exercises you will perform will be setup on the Starting Strength 3X5 method (similar to a 5x5 workout routine ), meaning three sets of five repetitions. You are going to want to push yourself to use weights that exhaust you during the last two reps to increase strength and mass at a good pace. Use the same weight for all three sets and keep track of your performance. The use of a spotter is highly recommended during these lifts.

There are two separate Starting Strength workouts to be performed: Workout A and Workout B. Each workout will consist of just four exercises. Alternate between the two workouts each week leaving at least one full day between sessions. So, for instance, week 1 would be performed: A-B-A and week 2 would be: B-A-B. Then, continue to alternate the two week after week.

The Starting Strength workout routine was written by Mark Rippetoe.  It is primary focused for the general newbie public that is just starting but it can be used by anyone looking to get stronger.

This is one of the best strength programs out there. It will get a brand novice without an ounce of strength, to an intermediate lifting decent weights, if the program is followed as written.

In case you went to the gym for some period of time and you don’t excel in strength, this is a great program to follow.

I must say that this strength routine really works. It builds strength and muscle mass like no other. I’m grateful that Mark Rippetoe took the time to create this beautifully programmed workout routine.

This program became very popular because of bodybuilding forums and media. Most of the time, if it were for you to put a question like “I want to gain strength, what program should I use?“, everyone who has some history on reading the forums will most likely recommend the Starting Strength workout.

If you are a novice or even intermediate/advanced, and you want to gain strength, your workouts should be simple, fast, and intense.
