Thanks :slight_smile: Definitely digging back squats. Have not trained it in years and I’m stronger than ever at it. Not sure if my body will allow me, but if all goes well I wouldn’t mind trying to train for a 600lb back squat. Cool number.

Above sets were all kinda meh. Feels super light in the hands but at the bottom my pecs are just incompetent and not really assisting like they should. As soon as it hits mid-ROM it flies up. Tri’s so dominant.

#997

@strongmanbrett was quite a set lol. I think I remember failing at 14 at one point in the past. My squat always sucked and it’s feeling pretty strong these days. Not sure what the cause of it is as I haven’t consistently trained the movement in a while.

Your pressing remains absolutely insane dude.

Merry Christmas Vinny!

@T3hPwnisher Hah, I’m actually super insecure about my overhead atm.

I’m vehemently upset I am not at 400lbs yet. I hit 365 3 years ago and I’ve put 10lbs on it since then, granted I had to take a break from the axle/barbell for a while to focus on log, but still…put over 100lbs on my deadlift and 80lbs on my front squat and the stupid overhead press is just floating around. Such a hard lift to get strong, even for me!

@duketheslaya Keep being a savage my friend.
