    Not great, but getting better.

  2. Justin says:

    Short on depth on the first 2 reps at 315, so I did it one more time to get it right. Had every intention of doing sets across at 265, but felt good, so I kept moving it up.

  3. Jakub Sikorski says:

    265-265-265-265-275-285(old PR)-295(PR)-305(PR)-315(PR)-320F
    Same as Justin I was going to do 265 (90% previous PR) across but after 4 sets I decided to go up.

  4. Michael says:

    175, 185, 205, 215, 225, 230(X), 205

    30-pound PR at 225

    Jakub and Justin… Damn! Them’s some big gains.
    230 is 90% my PR.
    Should have dumped the last 230, lost lumbar extension but fought the weight up out of the hole anyway, really tweaked the back.
    Then, 185(10) Sort of a box squat set. Using a Med Ball instead of a box, pausing on the ball then firing out as explosively as possible. Back Squats remain my nemesis.

    my first time doing single back squats…so i had no idea where to begin.
    85-105-115-125-135(90degrees)-105-115×2. I’ll figure it out. Next time I’ll start at 115, then move on. My low back is my weakest link, however its getting stronger.

    225-255-275-295F-275-280-285-225/10. Todays PR was 285. Did 305 back in March…

    And there stands Russell on the CrossFit Main site!
    Hope that means a pass.
