Since we're doing links...

Starting strength is not meant to be a permanent program. It's a beginner program designed to pack on big strength gains in a short period if time.

If you follow the program you will add 5 to 15 lbs to each of your lifts on every single workout. This is called linear progression. You stay on the program for as long as you're able to make consistent progress, usually between 6 to 9 months.

It's a pretty simple program.You lift three times a week, three barbell exercises per workout (3x5), one hour each workout. You eat a lot, and you make sure you sleep for 8 hours a night. That's it.
