Starting Strength is a program designed to help athletes build size and strength as fast as reasonably possible.
Based on the book written by Michael Matthews, Bigger Leaner Stronger is an 8-week lifting program designed around the principle of progressive overload. The goal is to increase strength and build muscle by progressively increasing the load on the muscles over time.
If you’re serious about changing your body, you need a solid “definition of victory,” and you need to measure your progress toward it. Otherwise, you have no real direction and no definite path toward improvement.
There’s an old saying that says if you don’t measure it, you won’t improve it. This is especially true for fitness and athletic performance. If you don’t record your workouts, you will almost certainly hit a wall at one point or another.
