Slowly building up the conventional deadlift. The conventional deadlifts are my main compound movement I use to track clients progression. Terry started with 105 for 3 sets of 5 and just did 3 sets of 5 at 165 today. She will build up to 175 for 5 before running 3 sets 3. Terry should hit between 185-200lb for 1 in 4-5 weeks. #fitness #health #womenwholift #howwomenshouldtrain #conventionaldeadlift #startingstrength #posteiorchain #glutes #hamstrings #progressiveoverload #keepitsimple #proudcoach #settinganexample
Hej! Idag har jag haft kul! Och middagen har inte ens börjat än. Den enda besökaren var lite förbryllad när jag drog av mig tischan och gick och hämtade en sten, men hon återhämtade sig fort. Puss på er! 😘

My colleague in Strength and physical therapy @dldeaton makes an excellent point... #Repost @dldeaton ・・・ Working with a lifter at the squat camp several weeks ago. He's was over 50 client and lifts better than 90% of the people walking into gyms today. Why? He's constantly learning and improving his barbell training skills. You can do this too, no matter your age! #40fit #fortworthstrong #ssonlinecoaching #startingstrength
675 block pulls today and a 50lbs PR! Rough week in training but it was great to cap it off with this today. #HAMMER #USAPL #SSOC #startingstrength #startingstrengthonlinecoaching #deadlift #powerlifting

It's *scientifically proven* that one's strength levels increase in a gym full of powerlifters. *Probably scientifically proven* #startingstrength #lanestrength #startingstrengthcoach
A tale of woe, intrigue, and boring, boring recovery lies ahead. Turn back all you rubbery 20-somethings with poisonous levels of testosterone, or abandon hope -- for this is a terrifying story of #gains lost and the futile battle with middle aged entropy... After coming back from a nasty, early-January bout with the flu, and prior to starting @jordan_barbellmed Intermediate plan, The Bridge, I found that I had somewhat intensely strained my groin (most likely my adductor longus) doing a very silly set of hip thrusters. But, being an idiot guy who was already on the road to recovery from sickness, I decided that, "ehhh, it wasn't that bad" (not at all what I would tell the guys I coach, btw). Big mistake! Going ahead with The Bridge, and just reducing the weight a bit, I soon found myself literally hobbling out of my squat sets. Needing to immediately to sit down between each set and grind a lacrosse ball into my left adductor, just to continue (remember, this is at reduced weight). So... after idiotically risking a serious injury, I finally wised up and pulled my head out of my keester. Thus, we come to my recent period of absentia and the content of this post. Knowing that some other folks on the Internets may be struggling with a similar strain, I'm posting my adductor rehab lifts and, some regular rep work. The only disclaimer is that this has worked for me, and may not be right for you or could even make your injury worse if performed incorrectly. It's also very important that you attempt these slowly and progress them at a very moderate pace. This morning, my workout consisted of the following: • Regular sets of 5x3 #startingstrength style LP squats (sans the wacky open hands) -- today at 225. THIS  movement has been the most important aspect of my recovery. I started the #LP at 95lbs, and am adding weight to the bar with each workout. Staying tight, controlling tempo, and being consistent is key here. • 4x4 Cossack squats with progressively added weight. • 4x4 Silly looking DB reach-though things. They probably have either a technical name like lying reverse stretch adductor pull or a cartoonish name like worm crunch pumps, but they work either way.

Think you need to deload every 3-4 weeks? Maybe not. I have been experimenting with some new training strategies I heard in an @reactivetrainingsystems podcast called emerging strategies. ——————————————- I have done the exact same weekly program for the last 6 weeks and have experienced weekly progress. ——————————————- Sometimes the progress is small, like a small increase in bar speed with the same weight, but I still consider that progress. However some lifts have gone up considerably while maintaining the same RPE. ——————————————- Will be pushing onto week 7 and even further if I don’t experience a downtown on strength next week. —————————————— Deadlift 505@8 405x5x4@6.5 -7 385x5@6.5 CG Bench 245x5@6 275x5@8 (PR) 260x5@7.5 260x5@8 Narrow SSB Squat 295x8x3@5.5 -6
My progress on the press continues extremely slowly...I was an embarrassingly weak presser when I started getting serious about lifting and it’s been a hell of a struggle to get to this point. This is 147.5 for 3. I did this weight for 5 sets of 3, this is my fifth set. #oldmanlifting #oldmanstrong #overheadpress #startingstrength #ironhousegym
Squat, press, deadlift. 390x5x3. 175x5x3. 420x5x1. @uspaillinois #startingstrength #powerlifting #squats #skwaats I don’t own any music in this video
My favorite exercise!!! Plus I’ve made some strength gains so I’m super chuffed! It’s only 10kgs heavier on the bar, but any progress is great progress! - #keeplifting #girlswholift #deadlift #barbell #squatgoals #strength #strengthtraining #fitfam #fitlife #strongwomen #muscles #gainz #startingstrength #spartan #booyah #5x5
I don’t really talk about dynamic effort that much because welp. Dynamic day is not about lifting heavy weights. It’s all about developing explosiveness. Speed strength. And strength speed. And most of all, work on technique. I found that using 60-65-70 % waves I burn out quick. So lowering percentages down to 30-35-40 seems to be working. Still got 2 more weeks to find out 100%. Stay Strong my friends 💪💪. #18weeksout #roadtostates
Planet Fitness does not want you to get stronger. I have been a paying member of PF for about 12 years, but I haven’t walked into one in almost 7. I went to my local PF the other night and was greeted by a bunch of surprises. No bags on the gym floor. Can you deadlift? Only on the Smith machine (that’s not a deadlift). Do you have squat racks? Nope, only the Smith. Where’s the bench press? We don’t have one. Do you even have barbells!? Nope, but we occasionaly serve pizza, bagels, and tootsie rolls. Pure craziness. It saddens me to cancel my membership (for some reason), but it’s time for us to break up and see other people. I want someone that will encourage me to get stronger, not discourage me from trying. RIP Planet Fitness, the Barbell Free Zone. While you “exercise” to get hot and sweaty, I will be “training” to get STRONG. @planetfitness #Strong #StartingStrength #StrongLifts #SuperTraining #UntamedStrength #BarbellMedicine #BarbellLogic #StrengthIsNeverAWeakness #WeaknessIsNeverAStrength #MadeOfSomethingDifferent
All of the pain, hurt, disappointment, ridicule, sadness, aggression, anger, depression, meaninglessness, shame, aggravation, agitation, fear, rage, grief, defeat and disapproval that I’ve suffered in my life is harnessed and absorbed; channeled.......So I can use it for this very thing! . . LOOK AT ALL THAT HOOKGRIP ACTION!!! 🔥🔥🔥 . . I don’t post numbers because gym PR’s don’t count and I don’t care what’s on the bar anyway but, after ending what was my original top single of 275lbs, coach called. . . Coach: “How you feeling? You got more?” Me: “I feel great! So what chu sayin?” (hood translation = So, you calling me out?) Coach: “Let’s go! 300lbs! Send it to me!” Me: ***Drops duffle bag, snatches off the hoodie*** “Load the bar!! Three hundid!!” . . Send the beast to the buffet.....beasts do what they do best....Be a beast and eat like a beast!! Epic deadlift milestone! I couldn’t be happier with the progress. When your coach puts you on the path, walk the path. Stay on the path! Learn while you’re on the path! Apply what you’ve learned while on the path and all the gains will follow! You don’t put 85lbs on your deadlift in 6 months by accident! FOLLOW THE PATH!! I WANT ALL THE GAINS!! 🔥🔥🔥 . .

Back at it again! . . . Lately I’ve been sick from a cold and haven’t been able to go to the gym. Plus been studying like crazy so I had to take some time off as well :/! . Started back up and am taking the week to warm up. My squats each time will go up a little just because I’ve been off for so long (at least it feels like so long). This squat was pretty light (235), deadlift was an easy 345 and worked on some benching. . There are no excuses , you either do it or don’t. I’ve been sick but I’m making sure I get back into the swing of things. Late night or early morning, do it! . . #squat #bench #lift #fitness #gotabunhun #plantbased #powerlfiting #squatting #workout #growwithgoran #lifting #strength #power #deadlift #gains #lifttillyoucant #fit #fitness #startingstrength #squatting #squats #benching #deadlift #work #barbells #rogue #squatshoes #sweat #grind #fearnothing #breaktheruleswithpurpose

It took me a long time, but i finally achieved 1x bodyweight press! 170 at 170. A 5lb PR. Should have gone for 175...... #overheadpress #press #startingstrength #powerlifting #fitness
Abby is off to flight school this weekend but first she had to PR her squat, bench and deadlift to scratch her name on the record board. We will miss her. #startingstrength #startingstrengthcoach #startingstrength #startingstrengthgym #westminsterstrengthandconditioning #army #armystrong
Working on my weak points: The back. It felt very steady today so I did something I have never tried before: Go for some heavy singles. Went up till 170 kg. Spontaneously set the goal for 2018: 200 kg :-)
Strong benching and wise words from @dwayne.wint #exodusstrength #startingstrength #bench #benchpress #fitness #fitnessmotivation #Repost @dwayne.wint with @get_repost ・・・ Tonight I squatted and bench pressed. Here you can see me bench pressing 360x6 on my last set across at a fairly low RPE. Tonight’s performance was a marked improvement since the last training cycle at this weight. Managing my fatigue and putting in consistent and sustainable volume while avoiding injuries has really helped my bench progress over the last two years. There’s no way I could hit 5RMs, 3RMs, and 2RMs on a weekly basis and make consistent progress because that would severely limit the volume of work that is necessary to see improvement in this lift. Also that approach would aggravate and create more damage to existing injuries. My training is far from optimal due to time/schedule constraints but it is effective and NOT complex. Anyone who tells you fatigue management using RPE is complex has some learning to do. #exodusstrength #startingstrenthonlinecoaching #barbellmedicine

Holiday lifts 👌 - Gym session days started at 5am, after travelling to the gym & warming up my main working sets would start at around 5:40/5:45am when the gym would have a maximum of 6 other people in it of which 2 others may be in the weights area - Made a couple of...well not friends because they no habla ingles 😂 but spanish acquaintances from them wanting to know what I was doing / me helping them out which was funny & cool at the same time 👌 - And lastly I think the only faults to my nutrition this holiday was the occasional treat (heavenly vegan donuts!) & probably not eating as much as I normally do due to restaurant portion sizes & lack of funds/time 😂 - CONSISTENCY - Interested in some Powerlifting coaching, PT or advice on nutrition?

Entered the gym today and attempted to shoulder the 100kg stone. Failed. Tried again and failed. Figured I should stop being a goose and work with what I could do and did 7x2 with 80kg. - - Was about to move on to the next exercise but figured I'd be up all night wondering what could have been. Gave it one last shot and it flew up 😎 - - On the day, I'm going to have to do this weight for as many reps as possible in 60 seconds. This gon be good. - - #powerlifting #bodybuilding #strongman #startingstrength #startingstrongman #physique #bouldershoulders #cannonballdelts #adonisathletics #futuretraining #logpress #atlasstone #stonetoshoulder

Dags igen! Det årliga #björnbrottarlägret går av stapeln på Sweden Barbell Club idag. Dags att kramas med andra björnar, smeka stång och svettas ihop. Några timmars träning, sen förkrök och framåt kvällen middag på Svartengrens. Det är detta vi lever för ju! #björnbrottarlyftet #björnbrottarträffen
320 squat for "fahve", 3rd set. 242.5 bench for "fahve" which really was 7 because I still can't math, 3rd set. Not shown, planned but not done chins and back extensions ... workout cut short once again due my misbehaving 4 year old running around the gym. So instead I did an AMRAP in practicing patience.😡😠 #justgetstrong #startingstrength #Rippetoe #markrippetoe #voluntaryhardship #strengthtraining #strength #barbell #simplehardeffective #squat #bench #toddlers #patience #doyourfahves #fahves #fives #welookdown #wcsc #westcoaststrengthandconditioning #crossfitventura

Tomorrow I'll compete in a sanctioned arm lifting meet against giant Russians, Norse gods, and men who can crush a human skull like The Mountain from G.O.T. and also @pete_831 So I'm gonna get utterly destroyed. But so is @pete_831 and this was his idea so #Schadenfreude and shit. I'm of Irish heritage so my people are accustomed to defeat at the hands of Viking types. Training wise I've been fighting a back spasm that literally drops me to my knees when I come out of the squat rack #butwhatamigonnadonottrain ? So tomorrow will be rad. #powerlifting #startingstrength #moveheavyshit #welookdown #tablemuscle #oldguysrule #squat #bench #deadlift #ivanko #armlifting
Training left me ravenous today, so I decided to make my favorite chicken recipe: “Cast Iron Chicken and Gravy”. In addition to being delicious, instead of the usual hour or more to cook a whole chicken, this chicken is done in just 45 minutes. Perhaps if there is enough interest I can make a how-to video. #oldmanstrength #strengthtraining #startingstrength #barbellmedicine #strengthnutrition #chicken #muscleproteinsynthesis #ravenous

The book that started the weightlifting .....or corrected the weightlifting! Anyone who is interested in strength training should absolutely read this book and anything else that peaks your interest. There is a skill to all this stuff. If you really want results and are serious, then LEARN how to actually train. There’s so much skill and technique involved. Read it, learn it, practice it, and become the best version of you! #startingstrength #markrippetoe #strength #training #powerlifting #weightlifting #muaythai #kickboxing #boxing #athlete #strong #barbell #kettlebell #cantstopwontstop

#startingstrength #deadlift Jamila is gearing up for her first meet and she’s looking good. An easy 230lb pull today then yelled at me. Her second set was even better than this. And fast.
I swear I do other stuff besides deadlifts. And making oatmeal. Or....do I... 🤔
😔😦TIRED!😣😥 - I'll explain how my day and training went. - Work was long and stressful. Was in the office for 11 hrs and still had work left undone after I left. I was so drained that I went to the gym and literally did 1 heavy single on the Big Three and peaced cuz I just wanted to eat and sleep. In retrospect, today was kind of a deload from the weights and from life. - Does anybody else deload with heavy singles??
