New Back Squat PR 155kg or 341#

Last time I PR'd my back squat was June last year and then I injured myself falling off a pull up bar - but that's another story entirely. I am really happy to be back at this level :-)

Part way through tonight's workout, which was:

Back Squat 1 x 5 (155kg), so heavy singles, followed by Deadlift 1 x 15 (100kg) and finishing with - 3 RFT:

3 Clean to lunge 1 each leg – 45% BW – DB or Barbell - 40kg

3 Turkish Get Up (each side) 20kg

5 Pull Ups

Time: 7:47

and for Tuesday.
Deadlift 5 x5
130-140-145-150-155 x 3

Then 5 rounds of:
5 Wallball 20# to 10'
5 Power Snatch 20kg
Time: 3:06

I guess the girls think it's winter

Keep it up! That's an excellent PR. Have you tested any of the westside stuff that has started to trickle into Crossfit?
