Great morning of lifting at @kratosstrengthsystems here in Evanston. Here’s a pic of the 6am crew, with coach @bill_coyne on the left. I find the experience of good coaching coupled with encouragement from your lifting peers to a potent combination on the journey towards strength. Thankful for these men, and all the folks I’ve lifted with over the past three years. I am stronger because you exist. Today was a good lifting day, with me matching my squat PR of 475 and hitting a new overhead press PR of 217.5. Excited to see what’s next! ........#strength #powerlifting #squats #press #deadlift #pr #friends #evanston #kratosstrength #linearprogression #pastorswholift #thickthighssavelives

One highlight from an eventful weekend: 315 lb/143-ish kg clean & jerk. I remember trying to deadlift this in my high school weight room without it budging from the ground. Pretty cool to now hold it over my head. ... ... ... ... ... #barbell #poweredbybuckwheat #clean #weightlifting #evanston #startingstrength #doyourfives #strengthtraining #chicago #fitness #hashtagwhore #deadlifts #squat #eleiko #seminar #northshore #adidas #kratosstrength #gainz #progress #kyrgyzstan #🇰🇬 #россия #украина #thankyouforreading

A couple weeks ago we held a @usstrengthlifting meet at our gym. One of our competitors, Ann, deadlifted 200lbs on her final attempt. She is 76 years young and has been training with our colleague Dr. Jonathan Sullivan in Farmington Hills, MI. @abcnews picked up the story and there has been nothing but praise for Ann and her coach.
#
Dr.Sullivan uses the same model as we do to teach people the barbell lifts. As this video is proof, anybody who is willing can learn the lifts and get strong.

Last week was full of PR's!
#
Nate is having a good run on his novice LP. He pulled an easy set of 5 at 315 and is continuing to progress, we are excited to see where his LP ends.
#
Andrew squated 225 for 3 sets of 5. Not too bad for a guy who will be turning 59 in 6 weeks. Andrew squated 65 lbs day 1 and has seen great improvement in his overall health and quality of life as he has gotten stronger.
#
Good work guys!

Never set the bar (or pins) too high
#
Sometimes things get out of wack and you miss because of a bad rep or sometimes you just don't set the pins at the correct height and you run into them on the way down
#
Lowered the pins, waited about 10 minutes and hit a PR triple at 410

Pat has been training with us for about 6 weeks now and is getting stronger by the day. At 72 years young we still apply the same principles as the rest of our clients. She comes in, squats, presses, and pulls 2 times a weeks. We have already seen great results and are excited to see her get even stronger through the process.
