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

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
