Re: Strength gains

Well I have ran since I was 8. Was squatting 400lbs in HS (full squat) at 160lbs.

Hit 500+ in college (track still) at 175

Now at 40 I'm 200 (sadly high bf%) and did 455

So for me it is something I have done since childhood.

My deadlift sucked till I started practicing Crossfit. Was 365/375 when I was squatting 485 (age 31)

Now I DL 445/455 at age 40. Lots more practice and work.

Key is time in and what kind of work you are doing to grow.

Sprinting + squats = good strength gains.
DL + accessory work = good DL gains.
