Leah continues to make solid progress. She just hit a PR deadlift of 90 lbs and is steadily climbing toward the 100 lb barrier! At 74 years old, she's making an effort to stave off osteoporosis and mitigate the effects of Parkinson's disease, and she's doing an excellent job. Many more gains to come for Leah!
Big PR on Sunday. 300x1 Yuri gave me a real nice high-five afterward. At the end I asked “does that count?” cuz it felt hella slow. Thanks for yelling/coaching (is there a difference...) @dtsak137 @bill_coyne 🎥 @bdivane
A M A Z I N G weekend in Chicago for the US Strength Lifting Challenge. Hit some awesome lifts and can’t wait to get back to the grind! 2nd Place finish overall and 1st Place finish in my weight class. And of course lifting with my other half @mike_grillo_coach is something I continue to live for!!! Thanks to @kratosstrengthsystems for hosting a great event. ♥️💪🏽 #marriedwithmuscle#girlswhopowerlift#platformready#singletsunday#startingstrength
Today was a good day. This was probably my best meet to date. I’m finally learning to listen to my body and I’ve never felt better during a meet. Feels good to hit these numbers at a lower body weight too.
Results: 9/9 (meet attempt PR too 😁)
High Bar Squat: 102✅110✅115✅ (253 lbs - third attempt)
Overhead Press: 40✅42✅46✅
(101 lbs - third attempt)
(305.8 lbs - third attempt)

Also thanks to everyone who sent me love and support today -it means a lot❤️ #barpathfitness startingstrength #strengthlifting#meetday#powerlifting#upliftandliftheavy#weightlifting#squat#deadlift#overheadpress#girlswhopowerlift#jymarmy
Don't have enough words to say how proud I am of my wife @linds_grillo today in her first meet. She placed 2nd overall and missed first by 2 points. Damn.
Squat: 298, Press: 116, Dead: 375 (redlighted for hitching..... questionable)
Pops had a great day to. Squat: 290, Press: 145, Dead: 375.
I increased my meet total by 62lbs!!
Squat: 503! Press: 212, Dead: 550!!
Huge day for myself with my first 500 squat!
Beyond pumped for everyone that was there today.
Thanks @cody_coderedstrength for all the positive vibes! And to @kratosstrengthsystems for hosting a great meet.
