    Thanks for the input, it gives me something to think about. We don't have smart phones or any way at this time to take videos.

    I know that most of you prefer free weights but what about using machines?

    I think machines are great...to put your towel and water bottle on while you're squatting.

    You can absolutely do Startomg Strength without access to a video recorder. Especially if there are 2 people working together who can watch each other and "coach" as they go. First of all, read the book. Second of all, READ THE BOOK.

    You have computers and internets, so you can at least watch lots of form videos and make sure you're getting the big stuff right. Eventually you can buy a cheap video camera for $20 at wal-mart if you feel the need.

    Okay I'll tell my guys to buy the book. Too bad we can't get Mr. A and RM over here to train them. I've got a freezer full of pastured pork we raised, chickens in the yard, a garden full of veggies and I'm a professional cook so I know what to do with these things, want to join us for dinner?

    Great! Let us know if you have any questions, of course. And I'll definitely take you up on that offer of dinner and talking squats and deadlifts with your menfolk next time I'm out your way!

    Almost any digital camera nowadays can shoot video.

    Yeah, the book has a LOT of pictures. Enough pictures you could figure it out. So your husband could look at the pictures while your son attempts the lifts and just from that he could instruct your son. It turns out that lifting weights is pretty uncomplicated even though the wordiness of the book makes it sound incredibly, mind-numbingly complicated.
    Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
    I can squat 180lbs, press 72.5lbs and deadlift 185lbs
