You Are Stronger Than You Think!
So I found these challenges on one of the facebook pages that I follow, Survival of the Fittest. Last week's challenge was to do as many reps as you could with your bodyweight on front squats.
So today I thought it would be fun to give it a try just to see what I could get! I weighed in at 123 today, but I decided to go with 120lbs because I thought I was really going to be terrible at these. I was thinking that I'd be happy if I got 10 reps.
Well, I guess I underestimated myself because I ended up getting 17 reps! I was pretty surprised with myself! :) It was brutal, though, especially since I really never do high rep squats ever!
