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?

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. --------------------------

Another Wednesday morning with regular trainees coming from as far as Beverly -- about 35 miles/a full one hour drive without traffic -- to get their work done.
———————————
Why would someone drive from one end of the city to another for a gym? Come in and find out for yourself!

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. ----------------------------
