I know that most of you will think this is light weight, but I think its a huge step for me. This morning my workout called for squats and stiff leg lifts. I work on my own as the guy I'm working with is in another city miles away, train through email and what ever. I normally run from barbells as I don't trust myself with them. I've been using the smith machine for squats.
So this morning, I bit the bullet and did squats for the first time at the squat rack using a barbell, max wt for me...145. Had no problem and used correct form and got a good pump. I'm over the moon I could do it.
