It’s Coming Along

March 10th, 2007

I am starting up a few sections of the site in my spare time right now and so far it’s going good. A lot of the site’s planning is being done while I train at the gym and everyday I come up with a new idea to improve the site’s success. One thing I would like to implement on here is a QA (Questions/Answers) page where someone might have a question or two to pose, specific to the Starting Strength routine (e.g. “Do I have to rest one week every 8 to 10 weeks of training?”). A lot to do!

Starting a Strength Training Routine

March 8th, 2007

Hello everyone! My name is Saro and I’m an avid beginner of starting a strength training ┬ároutine. I have decided to start this website up for several reasons, but the main three are to keep track of my progress, to further my knowledge of strength training and to educate the potential trainer in learning how to properly follow strength training routines,┬áprimarily┬ábarbell training. Other reasons include discussing book reviews, learning the proper way to do exercises (the squat, deadlift, bench press, etc.), any questions a follower may have (“How do I know when to increase in weight?”) and lastly, how to properly diet (dieting does not mean losing weight!).

While I’m not a doctor or have any sort of certificate in the training field, I do feel confident enough about my knowledge in the world of strength training to give the reader an insight into this fabulous way to transform your body. As of this writing, I have been training at my local gym (Monster Gym) for the past 6 years of my life and have seen all kinds of people train there, of all sizes, without so much knowing what they’re doing. Some of the people I’ve seen really have no idea where or how to start working out. I feel that with this site, I will be able to educate those people for the better and maybe give them a pointer or two on how to effectively train and get stronger.

Right now, this website is still in its primary stages of development, so a lot of content is missing. Hopefully, within the next few weeks, I will have the majority of the sections up and running for everyone to see.
