Brophet Rippetoe, bringer of strength, smasher of PRs, and caller of Brodin, has done many deeds to further the cause of the swole. As devout follower of Brodonism he created the Starting Strength path to swolightenment to pave the way for mortals to also acheive swolightenment.

He showed the world that it is possible to lift the dead, press the heavens, and squat the earth with proper training.
