    Default Utilizing Intuitive Training

    by Bill Starr

    [At] some point, any athlete who really wants to move ahead of the pack has to take it upon himself to adjust and revise his routine. Doing what everyone else is doing works well in the beginning, but to continue following the herd even when things get sticky is not the right path to the top.

    What an excellent article. I've noticed many of Starr's points to be true in my own training.

    I was very interested in Bill's experience starting out with minimal equipment. Here in Spain the gyms don't have squat racks, they're expensive, crowded and the abundant useless equipment is crammed into the smallest floor area possible.

    So, I'm making a home 'gym' to do the starting strength program. A squat rack, a barbell and some weights. I thought I'd leave out the bench and just do overhead presses. I'm not even convinced the BP should be part of the program for beginners.

    I think part of the reason that it is part of "the program" is because it would be hard to get alot of guys to do a program that lacks benching all together.

    I liked the article it was eloquantly written as are all the Starr articles. One of my favorite things about this site.

    Why not? I mean Mark has 30 years experience in strength training, and coaching novices. How much experience do you have?

    Default nice!

    shitty times call for great articles...

    I especially like the quote:

    "but what has happened over the years of being told
    how to do everything from dial a phone to what to eat, that we have virtually lost the ability to think in this manner."


    Kinda' like from that movie Seabiscuit, where the horse forgets how to just be a horse... Hope I didn't just miss everyone.

    Thanks Rip!
