Read full description of the books Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training:I have been lifting weights on and off since the eighth grade, and I was under the impression that I have been using good technique for most of that time. I considered myself quite knowledgeable about form, safety, and proper biomechanics. I was wrong. This book is clearly the work of two whip-smart men who've devoted decades to the teaching of weight lifting. It is funny, well-illustrated and written plainly. This is not to say that the material has been diluted for easy consumption; plan on (re)familiarizing yourself with anatomical terms like distal, anterior, adduction, torque, lumbar, thoracic, acetabulum and lever-arm. I learned more from this book about the correct movement of my body than I did from nine years worth of scholastic and collegiate coaches. The first fifty-five pages are about the squat, and there are only five primary movements covered, so the emphasis is on depth, not novelty. If you lift, even if it's not with free weights, you should read this.

He collaborated with Glenn Pendlay, international-level Olympic lifting coach and Professor Lon Kilgore, who established the USA Weightlifting Regional Development Center in Wichita Falls.
