With all of the e-arguing that occurs in this forum over Starting Strength, I thought it appropriate that one thread be devoted to reviews of the program. This will allow novice lifters and newbies to this forum to look at multiple reviews before making the decision to follow SS or not.
Your review should include:
(1)Dates that you ran SS,
(2)Beginning 3x5 and ending 3x5 stats,
(3)Pros in your opinion,
(4)Cons in your opinion.
My next post could act as a nice template for someone wishing to post.
For newbies wondering what this is about.......Mark Rippetoe is the owner of the Wichita Falls Athletic Club (Texas) and the author of numerous books on strength training. His program, Starting Strength, has been used my thousands of his athletes and trainees. On these boards, the program seems to be a lightning rod for discussion, some good and some bad. The program revolves around an "A" workout and a "B" workout. These workouts consist of core lifts: Squat, Deadlift, Bench Press, Power Clean, and Overhead Press.
