Starting strenght is a great program. I don't know whether I consider myself a beginner(in comparison to the experience some here have) or an intermediate(based off my lifting), but I'm feeling great about SS. It has all the makings of an effective program. Simplicity, progression, sustainability, and enough weight is used to stimulate growth in most people. I will be trying other programs as I progress, but I will probably keep this one at the ready should I ever need a break from a more advanced program.

My Training Log

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Top Gym lifts:
Squat: 415lbs
Deads: 440lbs
Bench: 315lbs
