    I just finished box squating w/chains (200lbs chain and 360lbs bar weight) 560lb total for
    2 sets of 5 reps :) Belt and knee sleeves. 700lb raw will fall by Christmas! Anyways, I'm pretty happy about it and thought I'd share it with everyone here. :banana: Two weeks out until my next strongman contest and I feel great...I should be going in good shape.

    Well done.

    How did you do on the leg extensions?

    700 lbs. will be damn sweet.

    How much is your geared squat?

    I don't know, I've never squatted in a suit. I hit 610 with the belt and wraps a few months back, but I feel much stronger right now. Oh and my leg extensions are improving! :lol:

    Gotta keep those shaping exercises up.

    I've dropped squats completely, to focus on shaping exercises.

    Not bad. I am currently focusing on the the teardrop. Dumbell step-ups really hit that area hard!

    Good. Because heavy farmers walks mean nothing if you're weak on leg extensions.

    I'd use my chains more, but there's the simple fact that I can't bring myself to carry all that heavy shit in.

    Congrats on the squat :clap:

    I am destined for failure, then :(

    But, after putting on the suit a second time, I decided it's much looser than I thought...however that works. I was able to hit my usual depth in it at 165...and then worked up to 205 :)
    No knee wraps...can't wrap my own knees worth beans, I learned.

    And here I was -- all pleased with myself because I was able to squat my bodyweight (4 x 6).

    Now I'm just ashamed :oops:
