    Take a trip to Detroit and travel out to Farmington. Contact Dr. Jonathan Sullivan at Greysteel Strength and Conditioning. We used to have one in Toronto but he is no longer a SS coach. Maybe you will eventually become a SS coach. Who can tell. We certainly need coaches in Canada.

    A few more training logs, mostly pathetic because my left arm hurts, and nothing is working. Except the deadlifts, it's mostly failed work-sets.

    July 18th, 2019: Press: 125 x 5,4,4 ; Clean & Jerk: 135 x 3,3,2,3,3

    July 22th, 2019: Squat: 285 x 5,5,5 ; Press: 125 x 5,3,3; Deadlift: 295 x 5

    July 24th, 2019: Squat: 295 x 5,5,5 ; Press: 125 x 5,4,3; Deadlift: 305 x 5

    July 27th, 2019: Squat: 305 x 5,5,3 ; Press: 105 x 5,5,5; Deadlift: 315 x 5

    I didn't bring my chalk to the gym, so the deadlifts were grip-problematic. I did 2, 2 and then 1 rather than 5. Next session I will reset to 325 lbs. The squats at 315 lbs are a PR. I was pretty happy about those, since three 45 lbs plates are cool. I was really pushing it since I think 5 lbs increments will be better going forward.

    I'm still fat, actually I keep gaining weight. It's not the worst thing in the world except when I tie my shoelaces and my entire gut squashes my lungs. Or deadlifting because I can't inhale while once down in position.

    I'm seriously considering no longer increasing my lifts for the next month, just holding it while focusing on calorie restriction and walking more. I have to lose weight.

    Strong work! I was in a similar boat but much older when I started. (62 yo 280 lbs 6'2" serious back and knee issues)
    I find that going for walks helps quite a bit. I recently added that and began to change my eating behaviors. I didn't manage a lot of weight loss but my lifting belt has four more holes showing (I had been on the last one). They are an inch apart.

    Good luck. I wish I had started as early as you!!! Treat being healthy like a hobby.

    I went to a squat seminar at Greysteel (near Detroit, MI) early on. Well worth the 300 mile drive.
    You are a lot closer to New York

    Squat Seminar:
    The Squat : September 14, New York, NY
    Coaches: Nick Law-Yue and Victoria Jaime

    Date & Location:
    Saturday, September 14, 2019
    1 pm - 5 pm
    Price $200
    Probably fits better into your work schedule.

    This might be a good road trip. Or something may come up in Boston.
    September 27-29 : Boston, MA
    Starting Strength Seminar -- [Read full event description]
    September 27-29, 2019
    Boston, MA
    Program Schedule:
    Friday, 5-9 pm
    Saturday, 8 am - 8 pm, with a 1-hour break
    Sunday, 8 am - 7 pm, with a 1-hour break
    Price: $995

    The Friday 5pm start time is tough since Google says it 5.7 hour drive from Montreal.

    Or just look under Events off the main Menu.

    Best of luck! If you do walk more, keep lifting but don't be frustrated if you lifts stall or go backward. Keep lifting anyway.
