Re: Ripptoe's "Starting Strength?"

I'm a novice and did it for 12 weeks or so. If you are a novice and want to get your big compound lifts up, it works great.

Re: Any good bodybuilding books?

Re: Good Starting Program?

Awesome - thanks for the feedback! My next purchase is going to be a pull up bar.

On warm up sets, how much weight should the warm up be? Last night DB bench press I did three sets of 35x8. Would you recommend a warm up with something like 20s?

Re: HIIT ideas ?

I have an elliptical at home and do one minute of all out at a cranked up setting, then I lower it down for two minutes -- for 30 min. A few times over the 30 minutes I go a couple more settings than I'm used to and try and power through. I like doing it on a machine where I have a timer, speed, set...

I don...
