Rack pulls are one of the few exercises that I can do where I look like I am good. There is something between my simian arms and my low back that I can pull a ridiculous amount from the rack. I have ran out of weight before doing them. Now that was a couple of years ago but I sure do like them.

Lots of really cool stuff in this post. Helen didn't look too bad to me. Your first round was great.

Derek-Totally agree with you about rack pulls! Definitely will be seeing more of them, especially with CF Football's push/pull alternating days. Hope all is well, and best of luck to Tracy with her fitness endeavor!

3/7/2012 @CFFB

Back Squat-1, 1, 1, 1
45*8, 135*5, 225*3, 315, 365, 385 ties PR, 405# PR

Four rounds of:

*Happy with the back squat 1RM PR, 405# went up quicker than I thought. Yes, squatting 2x per week is definitely helping me out. I took it easy on the Press 5RM, as I still am babying my shoulder. Ring dips were tough, but I managed to fight through them without any bad reps.
