This is another in a recent string of huge PR’s for me so excuse my temporary pride. YEEEAAAAHHHH!!! Since switching my training to a more rest intensive style (1 day on/1 day off) I’ve seen nothing but progress in strength. Today’s jump from a previous best at 265 to a new best at 305 may be a bit misleading, however. Recently I’ve been doing sets of 3 at 265 without going up, so although I’d technically never done more than that weight, I knew there was a lot more in the tank. This much more I can’t say I knew. I’ve attached the video below and Justin from East Sac was nice enough to put together the clip above from the footage he shot. I never thought I’d ever squat with more than 300 lb over my head, but I guess that just goes to show that never is a funny word.

I didn’t condition tonight because the sectional WOD is looming out in Rocklin tomorrow morning. My boy Gabe from Stockton set the bar high with a big performance: 8 full rounds plus 30 DUs and 5 snatches. Hopefully the rest of us can represent Northern California just as well.
