So here’s today’s squat 1 RM - a 5kg PR at 121.5kg grin , at the end of my first full CFSB cycle. Been working on my squats trying different foot positions, back angles etc and now have something I feel comfortable with. This one was a struggle but I just made it. I notice my knees still track a little forward but I think I’m leading with the hips, depth seems ok and most of all I dont seem to have as much butt wink as I used to. Havent used a belt in a couple of years but I thought it would help for the 1RM attempt - it definitely felt more stable.

Obviously the form’s a bit wobbly as its a PR attempt but as usual I’m just looking for any feedback and if good enough to continue on with CFSB

Well done Rob, It was a max attempt to be sure. But as a Powerlifting Referee, I would have given you white lights For a properly executed lift. Great depth also, Your form looks spot on. The belt is always a good idea for max singles nothing wrong with that. Congrats on your new PR.OPG     p.s.  I also like that you have safety racks in case of a miss. Very smart on a max attempt without spotters.

Thanks OPG - I just need to know I’m on track as in the past my ego has been bigger than my form

GD - I’m in Sydney - unfortunately I won’t be dropping into Brandx any time soon !  However still getting a lot of benefit from hanging around here
