The barbell Club @ WFC:

starting strength BARBELL classes, Open Gym & Private Training

For those individuals seeking to gain strength, increase your body's ability to burn fat and build strong bones.

Through the use of the Starting Strength Method, participants focus on the body's most basic movement patterns, using 4 barbell exercises that build strength - Squat, Overhead Press, Bench Press & Deadlift.  Lifters increase the weight on the bar with each training sessions (linear progression) and thus this program can be done by both beginner to advanced lifters alike.

Today I deadlifted 120 lbs. Last year on this day I was in bed unable to walk without severe back pain. I am not the same person I was last year. Thanks to Inna, WSC and Starting Strength, I have gained muscles and strength but I have also gained so much more. I am confident, independent and strong mentally and physically. This has been a year of growth and I cannot wait to see what I can accomplish next. I am forever grateful to Inna for taking me from a life of constant back pain and fear to a strong, healthy, active life.

The starting strength coaches here are phenomenal.  They have a deep understanding of the science and physiology behind their training regimen, and they place an emphasis on form and progress and on building strength in a safe and measured way.  They are also down to earth, solid people and terrific motivators.  Before I started my weight training program in July 2013, I had never done more than lift a light dumbbell occasionally.  Now, 18 months later, I’ve gotten so much stronger and have lifted much more than I ever thought I was capable of (and I’m still making progress).  For example, when I started strength training, I was able to squat about 65 pounds.  Now, at a weight of around 140 pounds, I can squat close to 200 pounds for five sets of three reps, and I can single rep up to 220 pounds (my personal goal is to get to 225 pounds; i.e., two “plates”, or maybe beyond).  I’ve made similar strides in the deadlift (PR of 255×5, and 285 pounds for a single), bench press (PR of 135 pounds for a single), overhead press, pull-ups, etc.  I am extremely pleased with the results, and most of all with the sense of accomplishment that I derive from succeeding at my training regimen.
