Some Squats From Cristi

Here is a video of Cristi Bartlett squatting. She did 6x6 on the squats, staying with 285 for her last 3 sets of 6. She has come a long way with her squats- she used to push off of her heels and drive with her head and chest instead of staying with the "lean".

Also interesting that because of some shoulder issues, she basically "high bars" all of her squats. I like her speed and the fact that she doesn't give up on reps. She has worked at it. Her 1 rep max is around 365, and  I forsee 405 in the not to distant future.

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
