Mcfadden (Scotland) - September 5th 2010
I've all three of Mark Rippetoes products, Pratical Programming for Strength Training, Starting Strength and this very DVD and i'd say that this DVD helped me more than the books. I'm not knocking the books, SS is excellent and a must buy along with this DVD in my opinion and PP is abit more advanced but is applicable to a much wider range of lifters, athletes from many different sports.

Watching Rip teach the PC to old guys, girls from scratch showed me how simple it really was (jump with the barbell in hand, rather than simultaneous triple extension) and just noticed that my squat could've been better from watching the DVD having thought i had it nailed before.

Really recommend this DVD along with SS the book to anyone wanting to but on a bit of muscle and not waste there time at the gym (as i did for ~7yrs).
