One of the most popular novice lifting programs, Starting Strength is a textbook (literally) strength program for beginner lifters to rapidly develop proficiency with basic compound movements and get stronger.
If you’re looking to start lifting and want something that works, this Google spreadsheet is a solid option. It is very similar to GreySkull LP and StrongLifts.
Graduates of the Starting Strength routine may be interested in Madcow or Texas Method.
For full support and documentation of this strength program, head over to Starting Strength.
To learn the basic movements in expert detail, I highly recommend you pick up the book. It’s one of the best investments you can make in yourself as a lifter.
