Strength is the most important physical adaptation
The Office Jobber
I spend too much time sitting and want to get into shape!
Busy schedule, too much stress, and too much time in a chair. Our office jobber friends need a simple way to get in shape. 5-6 days per week isn't an option. Advanced movements designed for athletes are too risky.
The Shape Seeker
My body isn't what I want it to be, I want to look good =)
Strong butts and thighs for females. Big chests and legs for men. Shape seekers want to be the best versions of themselves and know that form follows function. A strong body looks good!
The Elite Athlete
I already feel good and look great, but I want a competitive edge.
Athletes know that all other things being equal, the stronger competitor wins. Whether you play a team or individual sport, strength makes you more explosive, more durable, and more performant.
The Health Nut
I want to feel good and be healthy.
Well-educated health-nuts know that unused muscle mass atrophies over the years, and there is something that can be done about it. Muscular bodyweight is fundamental to hormonal regulation, injury prevention, and overall quality of life.
The Skinny Guy
I've tried everything to gain weight, nothing works!
Skinny young men that follow the program display some of the most profound adaptations in the shortest amount of time. Thousands of skinny young men have become strong, full-sized adults thanks to Starting Strength.
The Overweight and Scared to Start
I'm unhappy with how much fat I've put on and I don't know how to start
Fat accumulates. Insulin sensitivity takes a turn for the worst making fat harder to burn off. Energy levels are low. The thought of going to a commercial gym is terrifying.... We can help! Results guaranteed.
