Phase 3: become independent

Knowledge is strength

The essence of strength training

"I would like to start training, but I don't know where to start"

"I've been going to the gym for a while, but I feel aimless"

"I'm afraid I'm doing something wrong"

If you recognize these thoughts: no worries. You are not alone. Gyms are filled with doubting, novice strength athletes who have no idea what they're doing. There is so much (sometimes contradictory) information available that it is difficult to find the essence: what matters and what does not.

The human body is complex, and countless books have been written about how and why the body responds to exercise.

Fortunately, you don't have to read these books to get a grip on the basics of strength training: there are only a few. The trick is knowing how to apply those principles to your own training, which is what you'll learn in Stage 3.

In addition, in phase 3 you will learn some variations of the big lifts (there are many more than you probably think) what they are good for and why. This provides some variety during the sessions and prepares you for more advanced modes of training. 

At the end of this phase, you'll be a lot stronger and smarter than you were before you started, and you'll be able to confidently walk into any gym on the planet and train productively.

I promise.
