3x2 @ 175kg, not feeling like I want to die. 
3x2 @ 250kg trap bar deadlifts followed this and weren't terrible either.

Sura Back Squats 14 kg 3X5 Reps. The descent needs to be more controlled. She also got an unnecessary Lecture on Deltoid Muscle. #startingstrength #squats #strongkidsarehappykids

this includes dancers. if you want to get stronger, you have to lift heavy. it's not optional.

3 weeks out from #barbellsattheboardwalk my first power lifting meet, and my first athletic competition in .... a while.

So of course my competition lifts which had been going well are a tire fire. 
So instead of a heavy squat or bench P.R. here's a sloppy set of 3 2 second paused deadlifts.

Trying to convince myself this is part of the process and it's acceptable. But that's never been who I am. I don't want a participation trophy.

152.5 lbs x 6. The problem is that it was supposed to be 157.5 and, due to my really low IQ, I thought it was 157.5. So when I realized I could do six reps instead of only #fahve I got pretty euphoric for about an hour until reality intruded into my haze. Followed by 142.5 x 5 x3, 142.5 x 4 #oldlifter #intermediateguesswork #startingstrength #strengthtraining #barbelltherapy #barbelltraining #press
Spent some time with my boy @cam.use.your.good.hand working on extension during the deadlift. He doesn't think he can achieve extension on a conventional deadlift, but I have faith that his conventional is gonna be beautiful in no time. I definitely saw some things starting to click into place as sumo and conventional form slowly become separated. Conventional gawd on the way right here!!!

::
Squats. Still getting used to lowbar but this heavy single went pretty smoothly.
::
Bench. This ladies and gents is what you call an RPE 10 Grinder. Damn pausing for even one second makes a massive difference on the bench press. Will be resetting my weight and RPEs to account for this. Went 10lbs lighter on the volume sets from last week. Felt great though. Good solid reps. Notice the non-vertical bar path. Good to see me pressing upward and towards my face on these reps. We’re getting there...
::
Rows. Dropped my weights on these to get the RPEs down this week. Felt great. No hip swinging or knee bending. Floor to tummy every time.
::
Outside of feeling a little tired it was another good day of training.

Monday crew. Laurie @lauriepag hits 275# for a single for her squat AND 160 for her bench. Nahce!!!! And Alex and Kelly got some lifting done too....along with the other Monday night hard gainers. 😎 #fivex3 #startingstrength #startingstrengthgym #squatsandbench #prs #getstronger #trainingnotexercise #girlswholift #ladieslifthere #guysliftheretoo 😏
After about a year of lower weight, high volume training, I decided to take a shot at upping my actual (vs calculated) PR. 270lbs for 11 reps might equal a 370lb 1 rep max, but there's only one way to know for sure and that's by doing it. Did my usual lifting program today and was feeling good so I decided to try 315lbs (my previous PR) and hit it for 3 reps. So up we go. Went up in 15 and 10 pound intervals until I hit 350lbs for 1 and decided to call it a night. It's not much weight as far as lifting goes (there are girls that bench more than this), but I have to say that if you'd told 2014 Paul that he'd pick up 350lbs off the floor someday, he would have laughed. #startingstrength #powerlifting #531 #wendler531 #neverquit

Squat: Still getting comfortable with the new grip but today was much easier to get in position. Single moved easy thought about pushing it up but @mkcordova convinced me to stay the course and was a good call. Alot of tightness in left glute but no pain. I'm having an issue with my heels coming up out of the hole trying cue staying in middle of my foot but thinking its more bouncing off my knees out of hole and i have to clean it up before i get my awesome knee pain back. Any advice is welcome as always. #startingstrength

Yes I know, that butt getting off the bench. But, after about 14 months, my bench press is finally going up. Don’t mess up your rotator cuff kiddos! #startingstrength #strengthtraining #linearprogression #benchpress #barbelltraining #gainzoclock #thatbellytho 😆 spotter cred @_alex17_  and vid cred @jadaram23 👍🏼
Press & deadlift: Went ahead and pressed after squatting no issues with shoulder being aggravated from new squat grip. 300 single moved fast think i could have doubled if i could hold the bar path. This was a pr on the 3x5. Had alot of reps getting in front and wierd lockouts but able to save them all. Deadlift was supposed to be a set of 5 but felt a pop in my low back on the 2nd and called it a day. Feels minor but will see how it goes next few days. Back got stiff quickly. #startingstrength #overheadpress

Back Off sets, Microloading and failed Reps. All attempts to keep adding weight are exhausted. Novice Linear Progress is over "Puppy Love" is over. #startingstrength #strongerbetter #novicelinearprogression #goodlifehealthclubsmorningside
That look before hitting rep PR #startingstrength #ssoc #sslp
203 kg Deadlift : I practiced and verbalised 'Shove the Shoulder Blades to Back pocket' in order to keep the Back in Extension. The Bar moved forward ever so slightly. 
Couldn't do more than 3 Reps.

Most inspiring thing I have seen or read today. Strength training changed my life too so it was great to read an endorsement by someone as tough as Marsha! #PRgoals 
#Repost @startingstrength with @get_repost

This is Marsha. She has cerebral palsy and has been lifting with her coaches @mariekunkel and Nicholas Racculia at @ironcityathleticclub for about 18 months.
.
She had a huge PR on her deadlift today at 155lbs during the Squats for Tots charity event. Marsha used to be so terrified she wouldn't even let Marie tell her the weight on the bar most workouts. Now she embraces the challenges and stands so much taller. She works at a bakery and has reported that all her aches and pains from the job have completely gone.
.
Marsha says she will never, ever stop lifting. It gives her some independence and control in her life. Her lifts are hers alone. I can't lift the weight for her and it's not an empty participation prize.
.
And she just has the biggest heart. Even though she has a speech impediment she raised $400 for the meet in sponsorships - all in $1 $5 dollar bills. Marie feels so privileged and honored to have her as a friend and lifter.
.
Squats for Tots 2.0 is an event put on by Iron City Athletic Club to raise money for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. This year they raised over $7300.

Night shift life = missed lifts. Squat was supposed to be 415x3 ( two singles). Rack pulls 465 2x3 (I got 1x2). It’s not all PRs and sunshine, such is life.

There's this great discussion in @startingstrength's book Practical Programming about genotype vs. phenotype.

I immediately thought of Jude Law's character. All the genetics to become a champion, the genetics that said he was going to be a champion...without ever being fully expressed as an actual champion.

The saying, "hard work beats talent...blah blah blah" comes to mind. But it really does! Remember, we do have some control over our genetic expression (our phenotype, if you will). Just because we don't have the most elite genetics on the planet, it doesn't mean we can't express the best version of ourselves. Just because someone has better genetics, it doesn't mean they will actually be capable of fully expression those genes anyway.

All in all. I guess the "hard work beats talent" quote has some actual basis in science.

Until I start to fail reps or until I get hurt every volume and intensity day will be new PRs. Todays PR was 180lbs 5x5. #texasmethod #startingstrength #embracethesuck #chicksthatlift
It’s mooonnnddaaaaayyyyy. A.k.a. Doubles day. So here’s a PR double (set 2 of the scheduled 4x2) at 262.5lbs. Bodyweight hanging in at 143lbs. Can almost taste that 300. 🙌🏻 #squat #lowbar #welookdown #startingstrength #maybeitstheshorts #fleoshorts #monday #gym #happyplace

The true vision of friendship. I've been sick for about 4 days now starting to feel better but still had a tough time moving what I usually do. This dog has no fear watching 455 come down like that. 455 @ 8 which is a 30 lbs decrease from when I'm not sleep deprived, sick or eating well. Train through these kind of road blocks the more you can develop muscle motor patterns the better of you'll be in your training. I've been sick but its helped me cue myself to keep my back extended not flexed, shove my knees out sooner and stay tight. If I can keep good form on bad days good days will be that much easier.

The 2 count paused Deadlift. This has become one of my favorite supplemental deadlifts.  It’s taught me a great deal of keeping my entire body as tight as possible, increased my stamina during a given set, and has done wonders for my competition Deadlift.

Friday was #pinsquats  130 for 6 sets of 3 followed by #pinpress  triples at 110kg and 3x5 at 72.5kg on #OHP  Still fat but getting stronger again.

It’s Motivation Monday! For me it’s numbers going the right way like everyone else; however, the numbers never go up all the time. Many times we got to stop adjust and perhaps even drop to gather more tools and knowledge and energy to come back up higher than even before!!! #startingstrength #barbell #b&rbar #roguefitness #rogue #squat #fitness #workout #training #barbelltraining
Another member of the 500lb club.  4th guy in 3 years and second in the last month. Amazing things always happening at the farms.  Imagine how fast it would have been with more #hipdrahve. #avonoldfarms #wingedbeavers #startingstrength
Post night shift squats ☺

150kg for a single
135kg x 5 reps 
Adding singles into my current program atm, just so I'm familiar with having a heavy weight in my hands before the strength lifting challenge in June. Plus it's always more fun to do a heavy single 😅

Nearly lost my balance during the volume sets though - I blame the lack of sour patch kids today

Week 5, day 1. Squat volume for today is close to a volume PR and they moved pretty well so I’m happy with how I’m progressing so far. “Light” bench and volume deadlifts to finish up. I’m still working on setting and keeping extension throughout the DL.
Top sets:
Squat - 430x5x4
Bench - 225x5x3
Deadlift - 430x5x3

Behövde avreagera mig med lite mark idag, så det blev treor uppåt. Första film 3x220 kg och andra film 3x210 kg. Gjorde en avslutande tvåa på 232,5 innan jag gick ner för 5x2 på 210. Ok form

Jetlag? Not a big deal. Got my lifts done this morning @maximushealthandfitness  Deadlifts 255x3@9 (s/b 8) 215x3x2. Bench 105x5x3. Didn’t push the weight with no spotters or safety bars. Squats...ehhh... 195x3, 190x3x3. #usapl #usaplaz #masters2a #72kg #startingstrength #betterbodiesbyburman #a7bargrip
Well, that's a big fat fail. Failed my squat, bench, and deadlift this morning. Sucks to suck. :P ... just means I'm pushing myself. Fail forward.
.
265lb, 1 rep (attempting 1sx5r), came up slow but at least felt solid. BW 165lb.

But, did you know that I own shorts? AND, that I seldom train calves? #themoreyouknow🌈 #squat 295x7x4 #chinup #press #startingstrength

🎢Can You Say Rollercoaster Training Session? 😥
-
↕️Lets start w/ the good! Pause Squats felt light af at 245x6! 😬 Just look at the weights flying! In addition to that, I think I'm gonna start wearing these shorts more often. They wont hide my depth as much as my baggy ones! 😬 That way, these depth haters out here can stop making me cry and question my self worth, tied up in my squat depth 😂.
-
🤔The bad: Idk if it's cuz of the heavier sets of bench I did on Fri and Sat messing w/ my recovery, but today (Mon) my bench slowed waaay down after 3 Sets. I had 6x5 @ 8 planned with 160, but after 5 sets, I had to drop the weight a bit. I'll analyze this topic and delve into it deeper in another post! 🤓.

This is Marsha. She has cerebral palsy and has been lifting with her coaches @mariekunkel and Nicholas Racculia at @ironcityathleticclub for about 18 months.
.
She had a huge PR on her deadlift today at 155lbs during the Squats for Tots charity event. Marsha used to be so terrified she wouldn't even let Marie tell her the weight on the bar most workouts. Now she embraces the challenges and stands so much taller. She works at a bakery and has reported that all her aches and pains from the job have completely gone.
.
Marsha says she will never, ever stop lifting. It gives her some independence and control in her life. Her lifts are hers alone. I can't lift the weight for her and it's not an empty participation prize.
.
And she just has the biggest heart. Even though she has a speech impediment she raised $400 for the meet in sponsorships - all in $1 $5 dollar bills. Marie feels so privileged and honored to have her as a friend and lifter.
.
Squats for Tots 2.0 is an event put on by Iron City Athletic Club to raise money for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. This year they raised over $7300.

30lb PR raw squat! 555lb x1 for my first time going for a heavy raw single since september . Not bad for only eating a bagel and some sour patch kids 3hours prior to this.

Dropped to 85% at 471.5 for a set of 5 before accesories. 
Down 10lbs bodyweight from the meet as well. Making progress!

Good squats with @jesse___moore today. Maybe next time @ironforgedstrength
Will be able to make it as well.

Squats at 220x5x3 & 210x5 and some Pressing 85x8x3.

Thanks to @barbellclubwfc for hosting us at another @startingstrength seminar. I always leave these weekends feeling hella tired. We talk too much, discuss too much, coach too much, think too much, analyze too much and laugh too much and meet too many great people. Oh, and this time we ate too much goddam pizza. The worst.

Much love @innakoppel!!
