If a picture is worth a thousand words, a DVD full of Rippetoe instructing barbell lifts is pure gold. Read Rippetoe's book Starting Strength to get the gritty details. Watch the DVD to bring it all together. You'll see Rip coaching and correcting several different lifters on the squat, deadlift, press, bench press, and power clean.

The DVD uses mutiple camera angles for a clear presentation of key aspects of each lift. Footage of different lifters is integrated to provide a cohesive lesson to the viewer, which adresses many possible form faults in a logical sequence.

As a personal trainer, I was most pleased by the opportunity to see Rippetoe correct a spectrum of faults in several different lifters. Very valuable.
