Bill Starr was one of the first strength coaches in football at both the collegiate and professional levels. He remains active and still accomplishes great feats as a coach and a lifter over 40 years after he came to national prominence with the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Colts. Prior to his fame with the Colts and in the intervening decades his message has never wavered, deviated, been watered-down or influenced by passing fads and popular fancy. Starr is a passionate, concerned, and loud proponent of certain timeless and ageless concepts.
His simplistic message regarding basic strength has never changed, and never will. Pick several challenging and full-body exercises which utilize a barbell, load with a weight heavy enough to allow a handful or so repetitions and sets, and work with brutal intensity enough times during a week to stimulate your body to grow and get stronger. That’s it. It’s not complicated and it’s not easy. It worked then, it works now, it will work forever. He is a man of greatness who leads athletes to their full potential. Follow Starr and become a star!
