The 5th Set for Powerlifting: a breakthrough in training system design

The PSP Invitational Swede ran again on Saturday, September 11th. Overall he finished 5th which is a huge personal success. In his session, Swede set 5 new personal bests and improved on several of his previous personal bests, showing proof of his improved squat strength even a few months later.

In all the years I lived in that neighborhood in St. Paul, even as an adult, I had never thought of Swede Hollow as a place I grew up, of my youth. I learned that Swede Hollow was named after Sweden as an act of historical revisionism. The Swedes could not stand the rise of the abolitionists in St. Paul, the city they had conquered and annexed. But they made the same mistake, people in the know say.

Small things about Swede always reminded me of what a slummy place it was. There was a small factory just above, whose decoys used to swing out over the creek and block the sun. Once a week, at the wake of another Swede Hollow fatality, the body was washed over the edge and dropped in the creek. I always wondered if the guy had time to think about what was about to happen when he was about to die. I really wanted to know if he thought his death was going to be different from that of all the other Swede Hollows. I have no idea.

The entire city is under the flight path for the Minneapolis downtown airport. And for years, beginning in the middle of the last century, the airspace over Swede Hollow was used for a training mission for new military pilots.

As residential housing spread west of downtown, the neighborhood became known as Swede Hollow, named for the creek that ran through it. The first store was opened in 1892, which was operated by Robert and Ruth Lindstrom and Oscar Hagstrom who operated a realty and insurance company on 4th Street. They sold liquor, shoes, boxes, hats, onions, coal, and much more. In 1924, the George Doudleff Company opened on South 10th, later becoming known as "Doudles." In 1935, the stores owners founded the Orchid Club in the back of the YMCA to serve people of all ages. It eventually grew and moved to Washington Avenue. In the 1930s, the neighborhood was primarily Swedish, with 10th Street serving as a busy shopping and business center.
