SQUAT: Because Somewhere Out There A Girl Is Warming Up With Your Max

December 5, 2011 — Leave a comment

It's true. Even for me.

My max squat as of now is 440lbs. Here's a video of the legendary female power lifter, Laura Phelps-Sweatt, warming up with 420lbs, 470lbs, and goes up from there.

This girl weighs less than me too! (She's about 165lbs; I'm about 190lbs).

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
