Today I feel like a superhero. This morning I hit a new PR 1 rep max 400lbs on Back Squats. What an amazing day. Was told today that I'm gifted in Olympic lifting and that I have a talent for it. That was amazing and more than that I was more happy to see the look on my coaches faces. They actually seemed more happier than me. I love Crossfit and I love the community. I know I'm sleeping good tonight

Re: NEW PR ON HBBS 400lbs


I'm approaching 182.5/400 and racked 185 last night to get used to racking and holding the weight and to do jerk drives with.

Hoping I hit before the end of the year.

T-Rex might hate wall balls but he loves olympic lifts. 400 is a big lift and is probably just the beginning. Congrats.

Re: NEW PR ON HBBS 400lbs

Just so that this is said.... back squat isn't an Olympic lift.

BUT, nice job on the PR. Good work.
