Here we go again... back to having strength in the schedule. Every week we do a 20 rep backsquat- I am doing this 3x a week because I am terrible at them and, as noted with the open posts, I need to get stronger, badly. I have gone up 20lbs in 1 week- it is completely mental. My friend Amber and I were discussing that it seems to suck about the same as you go up in weight so we might as well go up. She is currently 20 repping my pr... I think that means I need a higher pr. :) I also pr'd my jerk this week- I don't jerk from a rack or block very often, but as you can see from my smile there's a really good feeling that comes from hitting a lift. Like really good. My jerk is not high compared to a lot of people, but as my sister reminds me, "up is up" and as long as it is going up I really can't complain!
The before and after.
