After last nights class a girl came up to me and told me she hit a PR. (Personal Record) on her back squat. She squatted 183 lbs. She did this on accident by miscounting what was on the bar. Pair that with squatting alongside another strong girl – the perfect storm for a PR and she didn’t even know it.
This same girl also came to us a couple of months ago post-knee surgery, wanting to get stronger. But we didn’t go from knee surgery to all the weights. It was slow, we built the foundation of squatting safely. Then went further with reps and sets. Then reeled it back when it hurt during some runs. But now, now she can squat 183 lbs. Has she arrived at her goal of getting stronger?
We might say so.
Or maybe she’s going to accidentally PR again, and again, and again.
