Now this is progress!!!!!
« on: May 27, 2016, 09:35:00 AM »
A certain young lady I know, who never set foot in a gym in her life until 6 years ago, cranked out this ball-busting squat session today:

Squats:

95 x 6
135 x 8
155 x 8
175 x 6
185 x 5
205 x 3
225 x 1
235 x 1
245 x 1 --> PR
205 X 3
205 X 3
205 X 3
185 X 6


I think there's lots of guy in our gym half her age that would struggle with this.

Super proud of her.

:D

:)

That is really cool!   Awesome that you guys support each other.

And if I know one thing to be sure......those are 100% legitimate squats! ...probably better than mine! (No vids required ;) ).

Congrats, and awesome job!

Thanks guys!

I am no young lady! lol..

I didn't think that 245 was ever coming up.  And I am sure that the last set of 6 at 185 was Mr Flexy testing my strength of character.  I thought I'd keel over at 4 reps.  I'm sure the form on that set was awful!

Form was great.

I really cannot believe how much better you have become in the last few months.

On Wednesday she did 275 with reverse green bands; zero tension at the top.

That was awesome to watch.  :D
