Hi Insta family 😊 another leg day done ✅😩😩😩 pic on left is from a few weeks ago I think,right is after today’s session.I can see there is progress.Because I hit a new PB 111.5kg for 4 reps,tried to film it but no storage 😩.It was tough,then did drop sets from 111.5kg -41.5kg and then collapsed on the floor & almost threw up.After a bit of a rest I finished burning out my quads in leg extensions with slow negatives & lot of squeezing.My legs are on 🔥 and struggling to walk up stairs.Time to rest and recover and have my magnesium sulphate bath 🛀.Hope u all have a blessed day #blessings#positivevibes#fitfam#mentalhealthmonday#squats#PB#deathbysquats
If you do squats alone in the gym and nobody is there to call you out on depth, can they even be high? Genuinely prayed with all my heart that I wouldn’t die on these. I haven’t failed a banded squat since the 340 and these are only 285, but since 235s felt heavy today, I still was pretty sure one of these was going down. Video isn’t to judge depth, it’s to have proof of how I died in case it happened and the police needed it. 🤷♀️🙈😬#usapl#5weeksout#deathbysquats#powerlifting#powerliftingwomen#cltfitlife
Man it feels good to be back in the gym!! After about 3 months out with getting back to work and running a jack hammer for almost 2 months straight, to traveling 3 hours a day for work it’s been hard to find the time and energy. But with another 18 months with a 3 hour a day travel it’s not going to get any easier. So today’s the day I said f@ck my excuses and get my ass back to the grind. What better way to get back at it then to start with “death by squats” and the 30 min deadlift challenge.
Fun fact: I hate HIIT. So much. So, so much. But I do it because it's good for me and the baby. .
If you find your knees skewing toward each other during your squats, use a band to help correct your form. (Fitness tip by the ever awesome @be_hard_2_kill ) .
I'm going to go pass out now. ✌

If you’re going to commit to something- do it whole heartedly. If it’s your relationship, your diet, your workout plan- whatever you say you’re going to do, don’t quit on it. It’s ok to be human and slip up but don’t stay there. Accept that you slipped up and recommit as soon as possible. Be a person who makes it happen and things will happen for you. #fridayatthebar and I’m in a practically empty gym.. great for me and all the weird noises I am making while I’m almost dying and working towards my goals 😆. With true commitment ..and enough caffeine anything is possible! #deathbysquats#girlswhosquat#fitnessgoals#itmustbesummer ☀️💦🏋🏼♀️
Went off program today and worked on 100 reps of squats with 315. I knew I wouldn’t hit a 10 x 10, but I didn’t expect fatigue to accumulate quite as much as it did. Fighting through those last few sets was brutal.
Probably wouldn’t recommend this structure honestly, but it was a hell of a challenge and it’s fun to switch things up occasionally. Now where’s my wheelchair for the next few days?
I am an absolute p*ssy when it comes to front squats. If you told me in order to make gainz on my back squat i had to do them outside in the rain, naked, and get an ass whipping on every rep, I'd totally do it. But front squats? Nah. Give me the smith machine and the wussy pad on the bar and feed me doughnuts between reps.
I have never done these consistently in my training because i despise them more than any other exercise but I'm committed to doing them while i run this intermediate program i just started. So here we go. Let's see if i get something out of this voluntary hell i signed myself up for.
Back Squats versus Front Squats. Which do you prefer?
I was TERRIFIED of performing Front Squats. The illusion of falling forward with the weight would psych me out before I even performed the exercise.
Now..... it’s an official part of my Leg Building Program, little by little. I’ve grown to love them.
My core and lower back feel stronger when switching into Back Squats.
Thank you @pantoja8443 for EVERYTHING you do. I hope I make you proud.
