I know a lady at 37 years old who's probably at most 125 lbs, and I don't know what this translates to in terms of back squat (which I'm sure she also does), but she does a 600 lb leg press. Go speedskating.

Based on my experience, it'd be less than half that.

My max A2A squat is 335. My max leg press is 800 and would probably be substantially higher if I did them more often.

Still, very impressive numbers for a 125lb lady.

the Crossfit standards from Crossfit North differ somewhat from the numbers put out on Rip's Strength Standards.

Is there any interest in reconciling the the two standards?
