Eternal rest grant unto him, may he rest in peace. He gave much to the weight lifting community.

RIP....Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS) was Starr's basic training philosophy, and a good one. Heavy compound movements, meant to improve most everyone's basic strength, with the focus on athletes. Short and to the point workouts always seem the correct path for power and increasing muscle size. Old school stuff, at it's best.

We passed around his early training book, when teenagers, until the pages were falling apart and the original cover was just a memory...,sort of like a training bible to all us future jocks.

Again...RIP Bill Starr.

Just to note: another book passed around later in my training life was "Power Factor Training"  (Little & Sisco). Certainly giving a whole new approach to heavier compound lifting. Surprising how much weight, with this partial style training, just about anyone could use. Worked like magic for some, me included.
