    Front Squat PR

    So I hit 325x1 today.

    Video


    I noticed with more maximal loads, my knees come in a bit, but with lighter loads, I can manage. Pressing my knees out and spreading the floor has been in my head for a while. Tough, but still working on some technical things.
    My road to powerlifting:

    Bench: 255 (9/30/13)
    Dead: 515 (9/2/13)
    Squat: 435 (9/26/13)
    Total: 1205 lbs.

    Yeah, the idea of a break from the gym is now foreign to me.
