Re: Overhead Squat BW+50 lbs

Sarah - that's my CF PR shorts. I use them for the CF challenges, CFT meets, Fran and more
I do wash them though!

Re: Overhead Squat BW+50 lbs

Leo, that is awesome. I'm shooting for BW +50 lbs by the end of this year. I put up BW+10 the other day but lost it at the end when i lost balance forwards in the rack (don't have bumpers) and couldn't just step to regain it. Guess that means I'm only at BW+5 (my PR that day) I may be only 165#, but that video gives me real incentive to get your BW on that bar by Christmas.

Re: Overhead Squat BW+50 lbs

Tristan,
What helped me the most along side with CF was addition of various Carries on rest days.

Farmers walk, waiters walk, crossover carry - 100-400 meters with 30-65 lbs each hand. Nothing set in stone. Just whatever I felt like a particular day.
I think that made the difference.

Well, the deadlift is just about accurate.
