Race to 180kg back squat ARCHIVE

Postby thestoatyone » Sat Sep 04, 2010 1:45 pm

So who's first to get there?

I've had a few sessions above 140kg, and now I'm itching to get to 400lbs; So I'm looking at you Andy W.C., and you Ninearms, who's up for the race?

Boom!

add 2.5kg to it and you have 400lbs, one of the well established milestones for squat strength! :)

400lbs is 182.5kg? Damn, even further to go!

Oh well, it will fall none-the-less...

Ninearms could do it now if he had a go.

In my current state definitely not, but once I start getting proper sleep and food again it will fall. However, for the sake of this thread, let's just pretend you're right.

While lying in bed this morning, I thought about back squatting. Then I saw this thread, this must mean I have to consider to go for 180kg :D .

Laying in bed is the perfect time for crackpipe lifting goals :)

I'm currently not a contender for this, but I know Hayden was trying to get this battle going with me a little while ago.
