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.
Rip explains the positioning of the grip and the bar for the low bar back squat.
"Not a single [trainee] has ever said “I just want to tone my arms.” They’ve come to me because they know what it takes to get strong, and they know I have been tested on both my knowledge of the Starting Strength material, and my actual ability to coach the lifts"
