I decided to test max front squat. Before the first clip of a 335xFAIL, I did 315 which was my old max. The second clip is 320×1, which is a a modest 5 lbs gain and a PR. It moved easier than it looked and I probably should have attempted 325.
Decided to test max front squat. First clip: 335xFAIL!!!. (I nailed dead nuts 315×1 before this.) Second clip: 320×1 a modest 5 lbs gain and a PR. I'll take it: a gain is a gain. Moved easier than it looked. ………………….. https://defeatgiantrobots.wordpress.com …………………… #531 #upperbody #wendler531 #notabodybuilder #trapsoverabs #powerlifting #powerlifter #frontsquat #atg #quads #legday #wheels #weighttraining #milwaukee #swoleandpasty #maxlift #1RM #testmaxlift #maxlift #pr #milwaukeefitness

I am not disappointed with the front squat max, but the bench press max. I’ve successfully benched paused 305 on the platform so I was kinda hoping to get close with a 300 lbs. I should have asked one of the bros for a lift-off. Oh yeah, earlier that morning, I had trained cleans and took some video, but I am not ready to share that yet as I am still working on it — I will say, it was very difficult for my first attempt.
Next week begins a new training block leading up to a meet on July 13th. Cant wait! It will be my first meet since February and the chest injury and I am going to go in with modest expectations.
