Rip put me through entire workout sessions for each lift, and during my rest time between sets I asked him various questions about lifting and getting stronger while the camera continued to roll. Below you’ll find a few videos that came out of these rest chats. Lots of great information, and of course, the gruff charm of the one and only Mark Rippetoe. If you’re looking for an in-depth explanation of these subjects, as well as the primary barbell lifts, you can’t go wrong with Starting Strength. Pick up a copy today.
