Over 6 months of Candito's linear program and miraculously still improving on squats... PR for a grindy 3x6 at 265 (previous 1 rep max from Nov.) superrrr happy with this progress😁

Those inverted barbell hip thrusts / inverted barbell push ups look solid! Form is a 10. Keep it up! πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ˜‰ #Repost @bitchwithbiceps ・・・

I guess anything would have counted for this,πŸ˜…πŸ˜… lol I've never had to do a heavy one rep max in front squat...well I hit 275lb yesterday for a pretty easy single! I'm sure I could've done more but I was feeling pretty awful last night 😭😭
My body is tired and I think I'm getting sickπŸ€’πŸ˜·...which is making my lifting suck. Hopefully I'll get better soon, gotta stay healthy for finals! πŸ’ͺ🏼 #EnterTRAINment 🦁
