I squatted 275lbs this week.


At three working sets of four repetitions per set, this is a personal best.


The first time I went for it, I got nervous and looked down to see where I was going. Immediately, I lost my center of gravity, went off balance and started to topple forward.


My coach grabs me for support, yells, “Look Up”, and I regain both my form and composure to finish the lift, strong.


In between sets, he encourages and reminds me, “Chest and eyes up, always, when squatting.”


Good pointer to also follow in trying to move other burdens.
