    162.5kg zercher squat 3 sets of 2 reps. Paused at the bottom, no belt. I've been making great gains on this lift over the last week, over 10lbs increase.

    Getting closer and closer to double BW zercher squat. Few more weeks and it's mine.


    Now at 165kg 2x2 Came close to snapping my shit up in the hole

    The only lift I'm proud of at this point is a close stance, ass to grass zercher squat of 170kg x2 at 85kg bw. If only they held zercher squat competitions...

    Bench gains using HCT-12



    I've been making great gains using HCT-12 for benching lately. Hit a PR of 380 at just under 180 BW.
