The Starting Strength System makes use of the body's most basic movement patterns – barbell exercises that involve all the body’s muscle mass – utilized over the longest effective range of motion and loaded progressively, to force the adaptations necessary for increased strength.
Unlike other popular exercise protocols, Starting Strength is a training system – a long-term process designed for getting stronger over time, not a random collection of exercises that just make you hot, sweaty, sore, confused, and tired today.

“I told myself that if the science got me out of there, insofar as it was up to me, I would do everything to keep this train moving, physically and mentally. I knew then that even I was not arrogant enough to think I would ever ‘beat’ cancer, but I would do everything in my power to keep it at bay.”
