A Rose by any other Name

Yesterday, I walked over to my 6'0" tall, 150 lb boyfriend Bill. Upon reaching him, I took hold of his body and balanced him across my shoulders. I then proceeded to squat down and stand up. 5 times. Oh, and did I mention that he was holding on to 2 5# bags of flour?

Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it?

And yet, it's pretty damn close to the truth. Just swap out the 150# boyfriend holding an additional 10#s of flour and switch it for a 160# barbell. Doesn't sound nearly as impressive, though :)

Back Squats, 5 x5
130, 140, 150 (PR), 155 (PR), 160 (PR)

2009 is off to a good start ;)

Many thanks to the folks at Crossfit South Brooklyn!


  1. You = hardcore, me = jealous


  2. you should totally post a picture of your backlifting the boyfriend ... that would make the internet more awesome than evar!

  3. LOL - The problem with back squatting bill is that I don't know that I'd be able to maintain my grip :) He's a bit wider in circumference than a barbell :)

    I'm going to have to ponder the possibilities of this one.


What's on your mind?
