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! •••

He racked up his 4 millionth airline mile this year, but a busy travel schedule doesn't stop Dr. Bob Bonow from making time for training. As one of the world's most prominent cardiologists, Bob understands the importance of physical fitness and has spent the past few months focused on building his strength. At age 70, he's already made solid progress with much more to come! #startingstrength #docswholift #kratos #evanston #deadlift #fitness

Keep pulling! Nate’s LP is still going strong in month 6 as he pulls 440 for 5. Also, that deadlift face is almost as good as @austin_barbellmedicine

Pete Nguyen pushes through a set of five reps with 355 lbs. 💪
It gets a lot of hate, but no strength training program is complete without the bench press.

Gabe Herman, Fed economist and possible member of the Illuminati, cleans 215 lbs for an easy double.
-------------------------------
🏋️‍♀️ The clean isn't a terribly complicated exercise despite how it looks or what the internet might tell you. A good coach and some practice goes a long way -- just like any other skill. -------------------------------

Nate pulling a smooth 405 for ✋🏻
#
Nate has been running his LP for about 4 months now. When he started with us he only weighed about 145 lbs. Yesterday he said he weighed about 175 lbs when he set a PR on his squat, press, and DL. Nate has been very consistent and listened to our coaching.
#
There is no secret to the way Nate has gotten to this point. We have him squat, press, deadlift, and bench press. We add a little bit of weight each time and the body adapts to the stress applied. He hasn’t done anything functional or specialized, just worked hard.

🧀 Mike stopped in from Wisconsin to polish up his technique. He finished up his session by deadlifting 300 pounds for five reps. -------------------------------
👏 Mike recently started strength training after a massive weight loss: he went from 450 pounds all the way down to 180 with just diet and exercise! In an effort to keep the excess weight off and to build lean mass, he found his way to the Starting Strength Method. -------------------------------
🎖 No matter your goals, basic barbell strength training has a place in your training!

⏳ Mark started training a few years ago and has made steady progress ever since. Even with a late start in his 40's, he's got plenty of years of gains left to come! ----------------------

🏋️‍♀️Maggie deadlifting 270 lbs for three reps. ---------------------
🎞 She had a hard enough time with less than half this weight not long ago. A fractured knee cap from high school kept her in pain for years after the injury. Squats and deadlifts were at first very difficult, but persistence paid off and her knee is better than ever!
