Pete Nguyen pushes through a set of five reps with 355 lbs. πŸ’ͺ
It gets a lot of hate, but no strength training program is complete without the bench press.

Gabe Herman, Fed economist and possible member of the Illuminati, cleans 215 lbs for an easy double.
-------------------------------
πŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈ The clean isn't a terribly complicated exercise despite how it looks or what the internet might tell you. A good coach and some practice goes a long way -- just like any other skill. -------------------------------

Nate pulling a smooth 405 for βœ‹πŸ»
#
Nate has been running his LP for about 4 months now. When he started with us he only weighed about 145 lbs. Yesterday he said he weighed about 175 lbs when he set a PR on his squat, press, and DL. Nate has been very consistent and listened to our coaching.
#
There is no secret to the way Nate has gotten to this point. We have him squat, press, deadlift, and bench press. We add a little bit of weight each time and the body adapts to the stress applied. He hasn’t done anything functional or specialized, just worked hard.

πŸ§€ Mike stopped in from Wisconsin to polish up his technique. He finished up his session by deadlifting 300 pounds for five reps. -------------------------------
πŸ‘ Mike recently started strength training after a massive weight loss: he went from 450 pounds all the way down to 180 with just diet and exercise! In an effort to keep the excess weight off and to build lean mass, he found his way to the Starting Strength Method. -------------------------------
πŸŽ– No matter your goals, basic barbell strength training has a place in your training!

🎞 She had a hard enough time with less than half this weight not long ago. A fractured knee cap from high school kept her in pain for years after the injury. Squats and deadlifts were at first very difficult, but persistence paid off and her knee is better than ever!

πŸ’ͺ At 74 years young, Leah Rogers decided she wanted to get stronger. She's always been active and even competed a few triathlons. In an effort to combat both the aging process and Parkinson's disease, she squats, presses and deadlifts adding a little weight to the bar each time she trains. πŸŽ₯ Shown here is an easy set of three reps with 40 lbs on the bar. She has lots of progress to come -- she's a great example that it's never too late to develop your strength!

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.

Cullen finishes up his latest program with a 545 pound squat. Standing at 6'5", the bar has a long way to travel but that hasn't been a problem for Cullen. He's another perfect example of how a simple combination of consistency and effort add up to big numbers.
