12.5 isn’t new, surprised? You shouldn’t be, dummies-it’s simply a data point. Compare this year to last year and see if you’re better. Is it sexy? Not particularly, but at least we don’t have to test Fran next week.
Just finished 19 hours on the road, so you’re not getting any excessive words, just squats.
This is officially the biggest squat I’ve ever seen a non-specialist woman get. It’s Lauren Brooks and it’s THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN POUNDS. When I say “non-specialist” I mean she’s not a competitive powerlifter or weightlifter, as a matter of fact, she’s top 50 in the world in the Open. Side note: She’s probably gonna be pissed at me because she hit 320# but I felt it was a little short.
Jay Rhodes @ 440#. This is a 15# PR @ a body weight of 171#.
