So, I was lucky enough to go on a road trip this weekend, to meet up with some people who know a thing or two about lifting. Their awesome strength must have rubbed off on me, because I was able to squat 225lbs!
It wasn’t the prettiest squat in the world, and I did get stuck at the bottom. And it took me 3 attempt. On the first attempt, I paused too long at the bottom, which is an on-going and seemingly incorrigible issue for me on my squat. On my second attempt, I got thrown off by hitting the rack, which I chalk up to being in a different gym setting and being somewhat sleep deprived.
At the end of the day, it happened and I feel bad ass. It’s a bit of a squat morning, but I think that’s the sign of a true max, so I will take it.
I consider this to be a significant landmark for girls, especially a new lifter like myself. Everything is lining up for my meet and I feel badass.
