My 2 New All-Time Personal Records

I had a phenomenal training week and set 2 all-time personal records.

First and foremost, below is a video of me pulling 535lbs x 2 from 1.5 inch mats. Considering my goal is to deadlift 530lbs from the floor this coming January, I feel like I’m in a very good position to do it. 

Next, here is a video of me squatting 335lbs for a pretty easy set of 4. Another all-time personal record, I was very happy with this and am excited to see what I can do at my next competition in January.

Note: My obligatory pre-PR dance celebration is included in the video. Prepare for the lolz.
