Strength is the most useful adaptation and is most relevant throughout life. An action as simple as getting off of the toilet depends on the strength to stand up. Click the link above to see some testimonials!

The Starting Strength Method

The method outlined in Mark Rippetoe's text Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training 3rd Ed exploits the ability of a new lifter to adapt to progressively increasing stress and thus produces impressive results in a short period of time.
