Weightlifting is tough. Dimitri hits a 10 lb PR clean & jerk at 265 after missing it five times before. Then he improves his clean PR to 275 after some technical and mental adjustment.

A few pics from yesterday's squat camp! Attendees came from as far as Albuquerque, ranged from 17 to 65 years old, a mix of beginners and seasoned athletes. We had a great time hosting everyone and look forward to the next training camp in April! •••

Closegrip bench press at 240, working on my triceps to help with my overhead press. Fun lift, weight feels light and smooth. I’ve made serious progress on these bench lifts, I’m no longer shaking like crazy. Very thankful to @bill_coyne and all the folks at @kratosstrengthsystems in Evanston, Illinois for all the great coaching and encouragement. Today’s lifts:

Squats: 425x5x3
OHP: 190x5x3

He racked up his 4 millionth airline mile this year, but a busy travel schedule doesn't stop Dr. Bob Bonow from making time for training. As one of the world's most prominent cardiologists, Bob understands the importance of physical fitness and has spent the past few months focused on building his strength. At age 70, he's already made solid progress with much more to come! #startingstrength #docswholift #kratos #evanston #deadlift #fitness

Keep pulling! Nate’s LP is still going strong in month 6 as he pulls 440 for 5. Also, that deadlift face is almost as good as @austin_barbellmedicine
