Looking around class today, it may have looked like I was in last place when it came to the front squats. However, I’m feeling like the big winner. Every time I step up to the bar with more weight than the last time, I feel good. And every time I put up more than I ever have (a.k.a. Personal Record or PR) I feel great.
This little lightning bolt has become one of my favorite things to see pop up. It shows up when you record a PR on BeyondTheWhiteboard.com. And it just looks so damn good.
115 pounds for a front squat @ 3 reps might not seem like a lot to many people, but to me it’s as good as a world record, and I can’t think of a better way to start the day.
