What to do After a Beginner’s Strength Training Program

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Someone emailed me asking what they could do after a beginner’s strength training routine no longer works for them (that is, they are not capable of increasing the weight on the bar as fast as they could before when starting out). Eventually, all beginners will progress into an “intermediate stage”. This is when the body needs more volume per period to stimulate the nervous system.

The next step in the series of books I recommend is called “Practical Programming for Strength Training” by an infamous coach. It’s available on Amazon or the book’s website.

Please note that the above is an opinion and a recommendation/review on a book I have read. This site and its content has nothing to do with Mark Rippetoe, Lon Kilgore or The Aasgard Company.

Book Review: Starting Strength, 3rd Edition Released

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Looks like the 3rd Edition of the book is out. If you never bought the first or second edition, what are you waiting for? 🙂

Reading the comments on Amazon’s page, I think there’s a major improvement in the illustrations of the book, along with certain explanations being rewritten to be more clear and concise. This holiday, you should do someone a favour and get them the new book and DVD together!

A post to keep the site alive

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Hey guys, the site is still here and alive. I don’t need to keep posting to let you know that the starting strength routine still works or not. The advice on this site never expires. 🙂 What does expire is the foods you’re supposed to be eating, so keep consuming those calories to grow!

Strength Training is Still the King

Saturday, June 19th, 2010

It’s been a long-ass time since my last update, and most of you out there think that I have disappeared for good. This is not the case, as I still make sure this site is up and running for everyone to see. There’s not much for me to say to be honest, hence the lack of updates (“If you’ve got nothing to say, don’t say jack”). I still train three times a week and grow stronger by doing so. My lift records aren’t world-breaking, but they’re definitely my own personal bests. In any case, I felt I would rework the site a bit and clean it up by the end of this month if time permits. No promises, but I’ll do my best to organize everything to be much clearer.

Starting a Strength Training Routine is More Popular Than Ever

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

It has been a while since my last update (way too long, actually) but that’s because there’s nothing new to report. However, it seems that the routine is more popular than ever, as people are starting to figure out that there’s no better way to train than full body exercises (with barbells). I have a lot of planned articles and sections for this site, but I want to make sure that they’re all polished up before I actually go ahead and release them. In the mean time, keep training! 🙂
