    • +15 lb PR from last week!
    • Originally wanted 2 reps for a 2RM, but 2nd rep felt OK so I tried for a 3rd. Got it, but it was a little tough.
    • 420 lb is even higher than my non-paused front squat 3RM (410 lb), and the weight matches my 2 rep max, meaning I should go for another 3RM and 2RM on the regular front squat soon (on top of a paused front squat 2RM).
