Another busy night at the gym. Beginners, seasoned athletes, and people in between all training together with the common goal of just getting stronger. #startingstrength #evanston #chicago #strengthtraining
After some convincing from his wife Bob decided to try barbell training, and at 70 years old this was no easy feat. On day 1 we started by teaching him how to squat by sitting on a box and driving up with his hips. Bob was weak and even standing up with his body weight was tough. 
#
After a month of consistent training Bob is now squating with a bar on his back and no box underneath him. Yesterday he deadlifted an easy set of 5 at 95 pounds. Not only is Bob building strength but he has also become more confident in the gym, and is enjoying strength training  more than he ever thought he would. 
#
Following Bob's third session he told us, "I really appreciate what you're doing and want to thank you because this is going to be good for me, and you probably don't hear that enough" This is exactly why we do what we do as Starting Strength coaches, we help people get stronger in order to live a longer healthier life.

The most important thing a competitive runner can do aside from pounding the pavement is to get stronger. With greater strength comes more durable joints and a far lower risk of injuries especially for ultra-endurance athletes. .
Now at 52 years old, Alex duBuclet has run his share of marathons and now has his sights set on greater challenges. This fall, he'll run two marathons in two consecutive days followed soon by his first 50-mile race. In addition to his daily roadwork, Alex trains with barbells twice per week to get stronger and become better prepared for the enormous demands of ultra-endurance events.
.
A stronger body is a more resilient, injury-proof body. Regardless of your sport or training goals, you must make room in your training for serious strength training.

Tom Kane pulls 605 from a deficit. He's aiming for 700 lbs at his next meet in November. Desk jockey by day and biker by night, a little extra strength and mass has served Tom well. Last year he was thrown over the hood of a van after his bike drove into the side of it. He walked away with just some cuts and bruises. Indeed, stronger people are harder to kill. .

Azamat Alymbek Uulu deadlifts 590 pounds for a new PR. This is up from his meet PR of 584 which stands as the IPF junior world record in the 59 kg/130 lb class.
-
Though only 25 years old, Azamat has already trained consistently for 15 years. Strength training is a slow, steady grind that rewards patience, persistence and perseverance. What could you do with 15 years of work?
