Another day in paradise at @kratosstrengthsystems here in #evanston. Got to play around with the log, threw up 3 rep at 225, felt smooth. Notice the step stutter between second and third lift—thinking I’m going to wear my lifters next time to help me keep balance!Thanks to coach @stevenmcoyne for the insight and encouragement. Of all the strongman lifts I’ve done so far, the log is my favorite. Looking forward to seeing how far I can go! #strength #strongman #log #gym #powerlifting #chicagoland #chicago #strongandpretty #pastors #pastorswholift

Alex hits 420 for an easy single — just 6 pounds under his current PR. Coach @dtsak137 has him primed for big PR’s at next week’s meet. #strength #squats #powerlifting #gainz #evanston #chicago #fitness #respectthedepth
#tbt to when our friend @andrey_malanichev stopped by for a quick squat session. Andrey left his shoes in Moscow so barefooted he worked his way up to this set with 495 lbs — only about 45% of his best squat.

Andrey will return here in January — stay tuned for details!

A couple deadlift PR’s from today. After coming to us a few months ago with a wrecked low back, Mike hit a lifetime PR of 405 lbs without any pain. Then Chris cruised through a PR set of 325x5 with plenty of strength in reserve. #strengthtraining #deadlift #evanston #chicago #northwestern #gainz #fitness
Denise and Pete Dellva began training a few months ago. Currently in their 50’s, they want to keep living active lives as they age. They decided to get stronger so they can continue traveling, hiking, and enjoying life to the fullest for as long as possible. They both hit milestone PR’s as Denise deadlifted 100 lbs and Pete squatted 225 lbs for the first time. Lots more progress to come for these two! #strengthtraining #deadlift #squats #evanston #chicago #gains #fitness

When Brandon started, he was doubtful he’d get to a 200 lb squat. After a few months of consistent work, today he worked up to 300 lbs for three reps. There’s no secret to getting stronger — show up consistently, put in some effort, and keep pushing forward. @two_brans #strength #squats #evanston #chicago #nu #northwestern #strengthtraining

Andrew Johnson finishes off a big day with this 410 lb deadlift! Along with a 340 squat and 250 bench press, he put together a 1000 lb total for the first time in training. #strengthtraining #startingstrength #evanston #fitness #deadlift #gainz #kratos #deadlift
Finishing today’s training with a few timed clean & press sets with the log. Feeling nostalgic for the triple-digit heat and the @originalmetroflexgym parking lot back in the day with @jailhousestrong and @stevenmcoyne. 
If @strongmanbarrett hosts another comp I might have to make a return to the strongman scene.
