We’re back! We took about a month off so Dr. King and his family could welcome their new baby Morgan. She’s adorable. On today’s podcast we talk about how a person that’s new to strength training should go about getting strong. It’s by something called a Novice Linear Progression program and we talk specifically about the Starting Strength method.
