How low can you go? All the way to the flo'? Can you bring it to the top?

So, my musical selection today may seen a little far fetched, but for today's wod, that really was the million dollar question..... can you get the weight all the way down and break parrallel before bringing it back to the top? That was the million dollar question because today was.... MY BELATED BIRTHDAY PRESENT! WooooooooT! MAX REP BACK SQUATS! WoooooooooT!

I worked in with the boys today and it was one AWESOME day... I had to lift and run because I was going to a wine festival yesterday, so I didn't see the final weights the boys used but they were lifting STRONG yesterday. Stewart, Sean, and Anthony all helped to get me to my max weight effort! Seeing as how my hamstrings are weaker than my quads (I'm very quad dominant) this should actually be a weaker move for me, but yesterday I was able to knock down some pretty serious weight. I still need to work on my form a bit. Once the weight gets heavy I try to stay too upright, but overall I had some good lifts yesterday. Check out the video!

This is the second time this week that I've PR'd on a heavy squat and I'm totally stoked about both of them. Saturday's a heavy lifting day! (Said with rugby chant enthusiasm! :) )

I'm sure that Mr. Rippetoe would be absolutely pleased with the form in that video... :)

Thanks Jerry! My computer was being spastic about the video, so I thought it was a Facebook one again... I will embed now... :)

Thank you for my belated birthday present... it didn't feel as good as the overhead squat, but it was still great! ;)

Nice work, Katie!

Seems you're back making progress, doesn't it?
