“Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.” – Charles Dickens
* Heavy As Possible
** Rest 60 Seconds Per Set
Completed: working with one of my favorite WOD partners, Nicole. 65lbs, then 75lbs., and 85lbs. At which point my strength failed on the down and I dropped the bar on the back of my neck. Yowzaaa. That didn’t feel so good. But after a good icing, ready for the week ahead. Nicole went on ahead to complete another set at 95lbs. She’s a total Rock Star. Always 10lbs. or so ahead of me and I love it, and her. She’s tall and gorgeous and strong and always encouraging and cheering the person next to her. A true gym beauty.
I don’t remember the last time I did an overhead squat, or the max weight. But I do remember a time when I first started trying them, it was with a green bar at 15lbs. and I could barely get into the squat.
