Book Review: Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe

by DailyHealthPost Editorial

Critical Acclaim

Reviews of Starting Strength have been wildly positive from the start. With hundreds of thousands of copies sold, it’s clear that Starting Strength is an institution in the health and fitness community. After the release of the second addition, many people complained that the book needed additional editing and that the illustrations (included to show proper lifting form) were unclear.

Starting Strength is available on Amazon.com, where it can be purchased for the Kindle or as a paperback. Prices start as low as $9.99.
