Your First Two Weeks of Strength Training: What to Expect-Mark Rippetoe

“After two weeks on an effective strength program, people of normal body composition will display more muscle mass. This will appear as larger muscles above the knees, a change in the appearance of the legs, arms, and shoulders, and more prominent chest muscles. Look closely and you’ll see it. It’s noticeable, even if it’s not dramatic, and it is proof that the previous two weeks have been productive.

You should be sleeping better. Your appetite will have increased, and you should eat more and better food in response. You posture will have improved, probably without your noticing it. Your gait will be more positive, and your physical presentation will be better than before you started. These are all good things, and they happen within the short span of two weeks — six workouts. If you approach the process correctly. Try it and see for yourself.”
