We hear a lot of excuses about not having enough time to train. But if you prioritize your training and care enough about your strength and health, you'll find the time. 
Bridget Divane works full-time as a nurse at St. Joseph Hospital, takes classes in pursuit of a Doctorate of Nursing Practice, has a social life, gets a decent amount of sleep, and still makes time to train three times each week. 
Even with a full schedule and long graveyard shifts at the hospital, she's made steady progress for months. On Friday, Bridget deadlifted a personal best of 187.5 pounds three reps. Her other lifts have climbed up as well with plenty more progress to come! . . . .

A+ chalk bowl from 2015 World's. I brought home a few souvenirs along with this piece from an incredible week of lifting. Thanks to Eleiko for always hooking us up with top-notch equipment.

Sam Bonow cruises through a set of five reps with 320 pounds on his back. He had two goals when he first came to us: (1) make his back stronger after suffering a herniated disc, and (2) squat 315 pounds for a set of five reps. After some set backs, he smashed his goal and then some. Now he's focused on the next plate milestone of 405 pounds. --------------------------

Brian Kegel takes a break between intervals of sled pushes. He's a former D-1 track athlete with lots of old injuries. Basic barbell exercises have helped mitigate the pain of those injuries and has prevented new ones. Combined with some sled pushes for conditioning, he'll be in better shape at 50 than he's been in decades. ----------------------------

There is only one kind of strength and there is one solution to develop it; lift heavy weights.
#
The algorithm isn't complicated. You go to the gym with a plan and do the work. You recover and come back a day or two later and lift a little bit more than you did the previous workout. 
#
Everything you need to get stronger can be seen in this picture. A barbell, rack, some weights, a notebook to track your numbers, some shoes, and a belt. This isn't very complicated but it seems often misinterpreted by the strength community.
