Dimitri squats 415 lbs to tie his competition PR! @dtsak137 #hellenika #startingstrength #strengthtraining #squat #evanston #🇬🇷 #fitness
Nate pulls a smooth triple with 495 lbs! Nate started training here a year ago and started with a set of five reps at 235 lbs. Twelve months and 60 more pounds of bodyweight later, he's made big progress! #startingstrength #strengthtraining #evanston #kratos #deadlift #fitness
Maggie breaks through the 300 lbs barrier for a new deadlift PR!

Independence Day has passed but every Monday is IndePECdence Day! 🇺🇸 Comrade Olshannikov celebrates accordingly with a 320 lb Bench Press. #internationalchestday #strengthtraining #benchpress #evanston #poweredbybuckwheat #startingstrength
#fbf to training a couple weeks ago with five IPF world medalists. Highlights included @andrey_malanichev with easy 635 lb deadlifts, @pwr_kgz pulls 585, and @c3muscle with a 675 no-no-no squat. #strengthtraining #startingstrength #deadlift #squat #powerlifting #evanston
"Belgian Waffle Friday" doesn't have the catchy alliteration were it a different day of the week but it's still delicious. #glutenandgains #strengthtraining #evanston
Derek Nelson pushes up a (over 40) bench press PR of 275 lbs. He's working his way back to numbers he hasn't touched since playing football for Northwestern with much more progress to come! 
@hcoates2 providing the hype.

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!

When he started training, Brandon didn't think he could make it to a two-plate deadlift. Now he's past the three plate barrier with plenty of progress left to come. #startingstrength #deadlift #progress #results #evanston #fitness #strengthtraining #kratos
Ever heard how strong people are harder to kill? This is a good example. The guy laying on the hood is Tom Kane after the driver of that van pulled in front of his motorcycle. Thankfully Tom walked away with only some cuts and bruises. He had plenty of luck in surviving this, but no doubt that having a 672 lb squat helped him come away nearly unscathed. #strengthtraining #evanston #luck #motorcycle #kratos #chicago #fitness #squat

Rebecca presses 140 and squats 320 in preparation for the USSF Spring Challenge in two weeks. Both are PRs!

Weightlifting is tough. Dimitri hits a 10 lb PR clean & jerk at 265 after missing it five times before. Then he improves his clean PR to 275 after some technical and mental adjustment.

A few pics from yesterday's squat camp! Attendees came from as far as Albuquerque, ranged from 17 to 65 years old, a mix of beginners and seasoned athletes. We had a great time hosting everyone and look forward to the next training camp in April! •••
