Woke up this morning feeling like I’d been hit by a truck Managed some reasonable work 90kg Snatch Complexes, 120kg 3 Clean + 1 Jerk Did a couple sets of paused front squats, then 2x2 Strict Press at 75kg Time to get this Overhead Press fucking ridiculous like @coco_strongman #olympiclifting #weightlifting #powerlifting #powerlifter #crossfit #bodybuilding #hypertrophy #strongman #strongmantraining #strongmanconditioning #startingstrongman #startingstrength #jackedandtan #squateveryday #westside #westsidebarbell #conjugate #conjugatemethod #snatch #clean #cleanandjerk #press #overheadpress #shoulderpress #overhead #shoulders
#benchpress today. 275 for 5x5. Final set shown. My groove, timing of elbow flare and touch point felt damn near perfect. Lost a little tightness the final inch or so of rep one. But i cleaned it up on subsequent reps. This ties my volume pr 5x5. But this is a wider than comp grip, minimal arch and no leg drive. Not to mention a much lower body weight. I always get really excited for little wins like this. Sometimes i get really down on myself when i dont get to see progress. But often times my recovery, life stress, and general fatigue leave me in a state that doesnt really let me show off my progress. But as coach @stanton_strength says "what matters is doing the necessary volume and intensity for THAT DAY". And thats why i use velocity. Thanks @ivankin123 for the lift off! #bench #press #strong #strength #strengthtraining #powerlifting #powerlifter #chestday #gains #ssoc #startingstrength #startingstrengthcoach

Welcome the newest novice class member Ken. A single sessions of demonstration to Ken about how much better he can move in just 60 minutes was enough to sell him on the class. Really, these classes are priced too low. Still an available slot at 6pm and a new class opening at 6am. #stanton_strength #startingstrength #startingstrengthcoach #noviceclass
Colorado was beautiful! I have never been to anything quite like the @startingstrength seminar. Intense, informative and exhausting. I opted in to be evaluated as a coach. I had good and bad reviews. The power clean was my weakness by far. Good news is I was evaluated to have excellent form on every lift, even "textbook" form on the press and I had good ideas to correct deviations of a difficult lifters form. Also was told I had a fairly firm grasp on the teaching methods. Bad news I was far, far, far to quiet, I wasn't assertive at all, and I was too slow to pick up on some deviations. Overall I'm happy with it I know I failed but I've only been coaching for 4 months and I took a chance I probably should have another 4 months under my belt and might have had a better chance. I only taught the power clean 3 times so it didn't surprise me I failed. This was a measuring stick to see if I have what it takes and it honestly made me want it more. They demand perfection and that's what I need to demand of myself. Lastly thank you for all the support to all my friends and clients that stopped by to help me out or simply just send positivity. I enjoy doing this and hope next time I come out on top. My journey continues. #barbellmedicine #startingstrength #fitness #training #barbell #coaching #utahfitness
Last training day before Boss of NorCal 7 on Saturday. Weights feeling nice, I just have to focus on getting enough rest and making my weight class. Top squat single with 519@7. Top bench double with 354@7. #untamedstrength #powerlifting #fitness #teamjoeyflexx #flexxtrainingsystems #gym
My squat transformation is absolutely ridiculous!!! 🚀🚀🚀 . . . I promise it’s not me. It’s the anabolic @stoicgear knee sleeves that provides all the speed 🤣🤣🤣. DONT 👏🏾 BLINK 👏🏾!! . . .

Like most people, I usually find bench the least fatiguing out of all the lifts – but my fettuccine arms feel like they’re going to drop off after sets of 10. 🍝 ⠀⠀⠀ Top single: n/a Working sets: 45.0kg x 3 sets x 10 reps
Hahaha, look at my eyebrows rise as I lift the weight. That’s so funny to me. After this, we did some heavy holds at 245 and 265 so I can get used to the heavy feeling before actually having to lift them. 265, I wanted it off so quickly. . (Squat 5x1@205 /215)
#Squat These felt poopy today. 425x1 @ RPE 8 440x1 @ RPE 9 385x4 @ RPE 8 405x4 @ RPE 9 385x4 @ RPE 9 (not shown) RDLs (not shown) 135x6 225x6 275x6 305x6 #powerlifting #kingjoesbarbellclub #startingstrength #barbellmedicine #gym #fitness #strength #strengthtraining #weighttraining #squats #skwaats #barbell
Been digging the new training program. Getting a lot done in a short amount of time cause cardio and stuff. * Deads 1x5@412.5 , Single@465 , then 3x5@405 (video last set) * 2ct pause bench 10x3 @240 on 90 sec rest. (video last set) * Finished with some bent over rows. Lifts are moving well right now. #deadlift #startingstrength #cardioisliftingweightsfaster
Training Log May 22nd, 2018 :: Deadlift 1x425lbs @ RPE 10 (PR! 🤩) 2x4x345lbs @ RPE 7 :: Overhead Press 1x150lbs @ RPE 10 2x4x120lbs @ RPE 7 :: Chin-ups 38 reps over 4 sets :: What a week! PR on the deadlift at 425lbs. Went up relatively smoothly and I’m pretty happy with my hip position at the start of the pull. This is my last heavy single until mid-July and I’m looking forward to getting in lots of lower-intensity volume during the hypertrophy block I start in a couple weeks. :: OHP. The bar was coming very strongly off my chest during warmup so I tried something crazy and put 155lbs on the bar. 10lbs jump from my current PR. Which if you know the press, is an insane move. Lol. This lift does NOT want to budge for most people. Failed the rep half way up but whatever. Still managed a PR at 150lbs. I’m happy with that! Volume sets at 120lbs felt damn near effortless. I think I’m getting some carry-over from benching. Perks of being a newb lifter! :: Chin-ups. Just cranked out 38 reps over 4 sets and called it good. Being deload week I was happy with that. :: I’ve really enjoyed running the #barbellmedicine 12 Week Strength Template. It’s given me lots of submaximal 1RM testing and gave me some massive PRs. :: But real talk, I’m feeling pretty beat up. Meniscus in both knees have been yelling at me even getting up off the couch. Left adductor has been extremely sensitive and I’ve had consistent pain for a couple weeks now. :: Given the great content from @austin_barbellmedicine , I’m still training. But I will look forward to lower loadings and a chance to correct any deficiencies in my squat form that may be related to the adductor and meniscus pain. :: A couple more days of lighter assistance lifting then it’s wedding and honeymoon time!
Totally crushed tonight's workout. Likely due to excess calories/carbs these last few days along with the temporary end of a big push at work. #feelsgood to not get owned by those weights. #startingstrength #fitbit
Shut up and take my 💵 😁 . . . Going to be traveling for next week, while we will try to keep up with the memes, no videos of Vargo’s lifting journey for a while. But after that - it time for a new program, and to resume the quest for a 500 lbs squat! . . . #Repost @roguefitness with @get_repost ・・・ @theworldsstrongestman custom stainless steel Power Bar with reverse Cerakote branding and black sleeves - adds 10KG to your PR #ryourogue . . . #barbells #powerlifting #strongman #strengthtraining #startingstrength #barbellmedicine #gymlife #crossfit #lifting #weights #thebarbellgeeks

I have reached my third trimester ya’ll. Hoping I can maintain lifting 3 days a week, doing clinicals 2-3 days a week and still working full time and rotating at the hospital. It’s definitely hitting me hard because I feel like I don’t even have time to get off my feet. Kinda laughed at my coach when he told me to do tempo squats but luckily it was 3 seconds down and fast up 225x4x3, deadlifts 270x4x4. #27weekspregnant #thirdtrimester #pregnantpowerlifter #barbellsandbumps #girlswhopowerlift #startingstrength
#deadliftday 👫 ( < thats deadliftday on the left) Swipe ↔ to see me deadlift even less weight on my backoff set 🙌
Jurgens...great work! 3x5x325 He’s worked hard to improve his mechanics. Excited to see what he can do through the summer!! #welookdown -#barbellmedicine #startingstrength #westminsterstrengthandconditioning #soccerstrength
Squats 385 lbs. x 1 Press 162.5 lbs x 1 Started a new intensity strength block this week and had a pretty successful first session. Squatted a speedy 385 lbs @ RPE 8 and hit a PR on overhead press at 162.5 lbs. 😁😁😁😁 #powerlifting #lifting #startingstrength #barbellmedicine #press #overheadpress #squats
Tuesday, May 22, 2018 ⠀ Squats 345x3x2 Deadlift 335x5x2 Rows 155x8x3 - General Notes ⠀ Got those Asics with the wood heel. They look super dope, but honestly overhyped for what they are: just solid weightlifting shoes. - Squats ⠀ Switched to triples this week. Foot pressure seems to be even on the video, but felt kind of towards my heels during the set. - Deadlifts ⠀ Since this is the light day, the weight wasn't that hard. Just another day lifting. - #startingstrength #texasmethod #squats #lowbarsquats #deadlifts #conventionaldeadlifts #bench #benchpress #overheadpress #press #militarypress #fitness #fit #gym #workout #legday #lowerday #upperday
Still grinding, still making it happen from home when I need too. More gainz coming at you!
She’s 45 years old; she looks like she is 35 years old; she has the body of a 25 year old. Why on earth is she with me?! #lucky

Here’s my workout for the day: - Squat 4 sets of 6 (top sets 255lbs @8 shown) - Bench 4 sets of 6 (no vid but top sets 210lbs @8) - Rows 135lbs myoreps. Did 16 reps to start then 3 reps after a 5 breath rest until I missed 3 for a total of 6 “breathing sets” Had to hit pause on my LP since I have a move coming up and I no longer have access to a gym with safeties. Out of an abundance of caution I took some weight of the bar and did a more hypertrophy biassed workout today. I’m still really novice with RPE but I used the chart to find my target % and felt it out from there.
The importance of a good theoretical foundation: I have been squatting for quite a while now and have also achieved good results for a beginner. But suddenly I could hardly increase the weight, I was already completely finished after the second set and even got weaker! At first I thought of overtraining, so I took the first voluntary break in over a year. All the time I also assumed that it could be because of my technique because I hardly felt an activation of my butt. So I started reading Mark Rippetoe's masterpiece "Starting Strength" during my break/deloading week. Here I realized that my technique was completely wrong, although this was not visually visible. With his technique, I became stronger immediately, and felt finally my glutes. @startingstrength #startingstrength #markrippetoe
280x1 One smooth rep. I needed this one. Back to basics. Master Cue: midfoot stay on it 😊#squat #smoothrep #teamssoc #barbelllogic #notbadforthisgal #43strong #startingstrength #silverstrength
Video on the left is from 12/1/17. It’s a mess, trying to squat far too upright with a low bar position. The video on the right is from today’s training session. I would never claim to have a perfect squat, but I would claim to have made great improvements in the last five months. Just trying to get a little better every day. I’m also about 20 pounds heavier today than last December 💪🏻. ..

Tuesday Lifts... Deadlifts: 130x3...150x3...170x5...130x3x3 OHP(yeah you know me): 60x3...70x3...75x5...60x5x3 "It's far better to make slow, steady increases in all your lifts for months than it is to make fast, unsustainable increases for weeks; do the math and you'll see the point. There will be plenty of time later for more exercises and more elaborate programming, but as long as simple works, complex is neither necessary nor desirable."

Using slow-motion video has proven to be one of the best tools for me in learning the barbell movements. Especially with the Powerclean and power snatch, which are the most technically difficult (and fast moving) so far, I am able to check my form immediately and provide corrections. I believe it’s the next best thing to having an experienced coach present. If you have the means, I highly recommend it! • Power Snatch 80lbs 8 sets of 2 reps. • #startingstrength #slowmotion #barbell #barbells #barbelltraining #lifting #powerlifting #powersnatch #texasmethod #selfcoaching
Strained wrist haz a sad. Nothing but cardio for me this week. #startingstrength #getfit #cardiotime
90lbs 5x5 I’m still practicing my form and trying to get my technique right
Big congrats to @marciadx for hitting a 225 deadlift milestone and making it look easy! Marcia also orchestrated the photo shoot, chose the filters, and instructed me not to post any photos with “ugly deadlift face.” She’s very passionate about her training, and we’re lucky to have a strong woman like her in the gym. . . . . #losangeles #gym #training #lifting #barbells #startingstrength #barbelltraining #powerlifting #strength #strong #fitspo #muscle #fitness #markrippetoe #fitfam #gains #squats #weightlifting #bodybuilding #strengthtraning #startingstrengthgym #strongwomen #girlswhopowerlift #womenwholift
Week 3 - Volume Squats 290x5x5, BB Rows 185x5x3 • Squats felt good today. Form was solid. Volume days are tough in the garage and the heat. Overall pleased with today’s training. Interested to see if intensify day looks better than last week on Friday. #startingstrength #texasmethod #lowbarsquats
Midway through the standing overhead press or OHP...great complete body workout. Utilizes the core, quads, shoulders, traps. #overheadpress #fitness #sandiego #startingstrength #fitnessstudio #fitnessstyle #strength #strenghttraining #miramar #undefeatedfitness #weighttraining
It’s been a while. Hit 180kg/396lbs on FS. Have been working on my last weight cut with @the_robert_santana. Almost there but glad my strength is still hanging around. #startingstrength #startingstrengthcoach #ccsc #cfei #crossfit #liftemeraldisle #frontsquat #olympicweightlifting
Intern @mpinoe making sure Norul from our semi private coaching classes sets up her deadlift in accordance to the Starting Strength model.

The Press - After last week’s PR Bodyweight Press I’m sticking with my focus on this fav lift and running it as long as I keep making progress. ••• Check my bio link for a great article from Starting Strength “Grippaldi the Great: How to Train the Overhead Press”. While I’m not following this programming specifically I was happy to see a lot of overlap between how one of the best all time pressers trained and what I’m doing. ••• These are from my last week of training and all are either right out of his playbook or close variations.

Don't do gym selfies but I'll accept a barbell 📸 Triple digit Tuesday. Deadlifts for 3 sets @ 5 x 100kg with an overhand (proper, classic, conventional?) grip. First time moving out of the 1RM range for 100kg, feels good to pick it up for a reasonable volume. Grip is definitely the limiting factor, did 2 extra reps with a mixed grip and absolutely wrenched it off the deck like it wasn't even loaded - amazing difference but I'm hesitant to move away from the overhand grip, feels like cheating. I figure the stronger grip can only benefit keeping hold of the bike (which historically helps with not ending up on your head) even if it compresses the deadlift numbers somewhat. Alternatively perhaps I should stop doing grip heavy lifts at the end of the workout 🤔 Still skinny but getting stronger, I'm going to refer to myself as petite over small 💪😂 @dw_filton #betweenthetape #degladoodle #degladoodlesyndicate #barbell #deadlift #elevatorgoingup #strengthandconditioning #petitepower #stillskinny #gettingafterit #ifthebaraintbendingyourepretending #gettingstronger #endurotraining #racing #privateer #competeeveryday #lifeisworthcompetingfor #startingstrength #weightlifting #rule5 #toughenup
