Mark Rippetoe, and the training program he has crafted in Starting Strength to take advantage of the novice effect, recently got the mainstream treatment from Men’s Journal.

  • The novice program, which exploits the novice effect (see link above), is simple and highly effective.
  • After spending an initial investment of time in dedicating yourself solely to the novice program, it’s easy to integrate other non-strength-related athletic pursuits back into your program.
