“Say it . . . SAY IT!”
Hint: Gary Oldman is in this scene
Justin is currently out of town. So here is a video of Dylan. He trains with me in Statesboro. He exhausted the linear progression so I gave him the go-ahead to max out on his Deadlifts
Starting Strength Seminar in Wichita Falls, TX
If you are on the quest to get 70’s Big or have considered coaching other people to get strong, then check out the new Starting Strength Seminar. You will learn the nitty gritty details on mechanics and anatomy, and then apply those lessons while coaching other people and getting coached while under the bar. There will be one at the Wichita Falls Athletic Club in Wichita Falls, Texas on February 26-28. This would be a good chance to train and learn at one of the best gyms in the country.
Some of you are actually doing what you’re supposed to: getting strong and not complaining. AC has been busy coaching people in getting strong at Georgia Southern University. His pal Pat has done well:
I my as well run all of these Rippetoe interview videos again for all you noobs. Let’s start at the beginning.
Thomasz (correct spelling) sent me a picture of his recent grocery rampage. We are going to get accused of leading and feeding a militia.

We got back late Monday night from doing a barbell seminar in Huntington Beach, CA. I would not advise anyone visiting or continuing to live in that state. To California residents: I’m sorry I’m not sorry. More on the trip tomorrow…
You may remember that on Friday, I mentioned that AC was going to compete in a USAPL meet. He did 70’s Big justice going 7 for 9, and I’m proud of him.
Competing in the 220 lb class…
Body weight: 204 (on their scale, he was around 208-209 on his scale)
Squat: 529 (raw state record)
Bench: 368 (raw state record
Edit: AC went 7 of 9. I typed it wrong last night for some reason. I was in a hurry.
I just got home to Wichita Falls, and it is 12:30 AM local time. Airline delays are delightful. This means that I won’t be giving you a full recap of the trip today. I’m sorry I’m not sorry. There will be plenty of shenanigans coming tomorrow.
In the mean time, enjoy this video AC made of his “Starting Strength Crew” in Statesboro, GA. Good group.
Raise your hand if you have hit any PR’s lately. I think we need to have weekly updates of them — bodyweight gain or otherwise. Send them in, fool.
