    I got the Starting Strength DVD, and I recommend it highly. The book is helpful, but the DVD gives you good, visual examples of what to do. I improved my squat form immediately this morning. I felt stuff working hard that clearly was not working hard before, and I read the entire squat chapter and thought I was doing it right.

    I look forward to watching the other sections this weekend before my Monday lift session.

    Agreed. I've been a guinea pig with my own training over the past several years - at least for my body type I can't eat to "bulk" without creating extra work down the line, due to body fat. Best solution: work for STRENGTH and eat a clean Primal diet. Pay extra attention to minerals and vitamins - I know from experience that these micronutrients can have a huge impact on your strength gains/fat loss. Your strength gains will produce stronger, tighter muscles, including ligament and joint strength. You'll be creating a body that will burn fat without having to try. If you wanna do the bodybuilder "bulk" cycle followed by a "cut" you're just creating extra work, in my opinion.
