Considering I could not squat with just the bar (45 lbs) in November, I'm pleased to announce that yesterday I squatted 175 lbs for 5. OH YEAH:) I think 200 lbs is going down in the next couple of weeks. It is amazing how quickly the body responds to being pushed. I love it! My legs and booty are loving it too...seeing some definite progress. Progress is what it is about, people.
