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.
We are pleased to announce the fourth annual Starting Strength Coaches Association Conference on October 2 though 4, 2015. The conference will again take place at the Wichita Falls Athletic Club. The tentative schedule including presentations by Rip, Jonathan Sullivan, stef bradford, Beau Bryant, Jordan Feigenbaum, Tom Campitelli, Brodie Butland, Callie Oettinger, Nicholas Racculia, and Brian Jones is shown at the registration site. The now traditional Friday evening workout will take place, so bring your lifting equipment. We will be cooking up dry aged, Texas-raised steaks on the grill at the gym on Saturday evening, and holding a business meeting Sunday afternoon to help chart the course of the organization in the coming year. Each year the conference has been bigger and better and this will be no exception. This excellent opportunity to learn from one another, network, train, and enjoy each other’s company only comes around once each year and we would like to see all of our coaches there. Only Starting Strength Coaches and their significant others are eligible for attendance. See you in October.
