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

72 year-old Leah passes her first century mark with this 100 lb deadlift! She hasn't let age or Parkinson's disease get in the way of her progress -- she's able to make slow, steady gains like anyone else. Many more PR's to come for her!

Our summer intern Daniel squats 425 lbs -- just 5 lbs shy of his PR. #startingstrength #strengthtraining #squat #fitness #evanston #yeshivauniversity @donathan_thewolf
Mark Huddle -- attorney, artist, actor, athlete -- at the bottom of a 190 lb squat. He started training with barbells two years ago after decades of competitive martial arts which took a toll on his body. At 57 years old he's at his strongest and can keep up with fighters half his age while avoiding injuries. #startingstrength #squat #evanston #chicago #strengthtraining #fitness #kratos
