tee_cummins- 771 and 810 Squat w/wraps at 235bw.... Called for depth on last attempt at 832. 429 and 451 Bench 716 and 755 Deadlift for a 2017 Total at 235lbs... Quite fitting for the year I've had. Second most I've totaled and most since injury... Skipped a 3rd, gave all I had on the second.

Bonnie Schroeder- 4 rep pr with 328

bonschroIf- I'm not mistaken, I believe this is a four rep PR. 328lb. Came back and hit it two more times, so 3x4 actually. It's amazing how great the third ones felt compared to how shitty the fourth reps felt. This isn't crazy impressive weight for me or anything but just another glimpse into the daily grind that goes into hitting those big PRs that we all love to share on social media. Embrace the tough training days, they're just another deposit in the bank. 9 weeks out.

Mike Tuchscherer- Front Squat 495x1 @8RPE

miketuchscherer- Front Squat 495x1 @8RPE. Took my bigger jump and it went alright. Kept the bar on my shoulders just fine. This is the most weight I've ever front squatted. I did get a little rounded over, but I think the load just caught me off guard. And that, boys and girls, is why it's useful to practice heavier singles. Doesn't have to be every week, but it is useful.

Jenn Rotsinger- Sumo deadlift tips

jrotsinger- Hopefully this will help those who struggle with the sumo deadlift. Often I see athletes who are trying to squat the weight up. You want to use your hips as a wedge and drive them between the bar and the ground. Open up your hips, tighten your lats and upper back, then push your feet through the floor. . And yes, I don't have AC in Florida
