1/23 – Squat – ME

10/10. Outstanding session. First run at maxing out ATG Zerchers and already matched my old, old PR from nearly 8 years ago. Definitely more in the tank, too. Speed squats were fast. Tried a hook grip on shrugs for the first time ever and had no issues with repping out 585. I will most likely continue with the hook for pulls going forward, providing my thumbs hold up.
