    1RM Back Squat
    315#…still more in the tank. Thanks Gilles and Gabe

    1000m Row for time

    TIME: 3:36…slower than last time, didn’t pace it right

  2. Back Squat 1RM
    115×5 – 140×3 – 160×2 – 180×1 – 190×1 – 200×1 – 210×1 – 220×1 (FAIL)

    First time squatting heaving in over 10 months, I was hoping to beat bodyweight (196) and I did! Little short of my previous 1RM but I suspect that’s gonna come back soon 🙂

    1000m row – 3:51.7 (~2 seconds faster than last time, but not quite PR)

    15 Box Jumps (24/20 in)

  4. Back Squat
    Build to a 1RM

    Not only was that a PR, but also the first time I’ve squatted over 125# (only tested 5RM and 3RM in the past).

    Thanks Amanda and Julie for sharing the bar!

    1000m Row for time: 4:07

    Thanks Blake!

  5. Fred

    Back Squat
    Build to a 1RM
    120(x5)- 145(x3)-165(x2)-195-205-215-225-235-245-255 (PR) -260# (failed but could have gotten it… gave up)
    Previous PR: 340#

    1000m Row for time – 3:35
    Previous PR: 3:37

    First ever double PR day, which is considered a PR makes it a triple PR day… LOL

  6. Heather Skeard

    Back squats
    Worked up to 195#. My old PR is 260# but considering I’m pregnant and cannot use a weight belt, I stayed light and made sure my back was good.

    Row = 4;09
    Same thing, not a PR by any means but kept a slow steady pace, I have a cold and didn’t want to cough and get sick 🙂

  7. Kevin

    Back Squat

    20# off PR, but exactly where I started last October.

    1000m Row
    3:21 (5 sec off PR)

    Body didn’t feel right. Heart was racing after the first 200m.

  8. Tina LeBlanc

    Back squat build to 1 RM

    35# – 5
    50 – 3
    60 – 2
    70 – 1
    75 – 1
    85 – 1
    90 – 1
    95 – 1
    105 – 1

    1000m row for time

  9. Shane Hayes

    Mob and Wu

    225 x 5/ 275 x 3/ 315 x 2
    365 / 405/ 435 / 455 x 1
    Matched my old pr, but they way they were feeling I wanted to go heavier… Buttt I bottomed out on the 455 and it took everything to stand that back up. So we will test after the cycle!! #roadto500lbs

    Row 1000m, 3:32
    I think my pr is 3:23
    So it was close to it, seemed like I may have started off a little fast.

    Thanks Amanda!!

  10. Jo

    Squats up to 205#
    Matches my PR from a lot of years ago so I’ll gladly take it considering I don’t workout as much anymore.

    Thanks for sharing the red bar Sam and props to Julia for her 20 or so lb PR 🙂

  11. Melanie

    Back Squat
    Build to a 1RM
    According to Mike, I actually had 165# on the bar instead of 155#..
    Soo I ‘think’ I got a really big PR 🤷‍♀️
    1000m Row for time

  12. Samantha Both

    Back Squats — I had just tested this the week before during the powerlifting clinic and was fasting, so I am not surprised it didn’t go swell. My 1RM is 190# but I do my percentages off of 195#.

    100/120/140/155/165/175/185 = Failed at 190 and didn’t attempt 195 as planned

    Row – 4:11
