Eric and I are currently participating in a year-long challenge with some close friends scattered throughout the globe. A few weeks ago, we were given the task to complete as many back squats as possible at our own body weight in one straight set. What soon followed proved to be so much “fun”, I decided to pass this joyous experience on to you.

Between the two of us, Eric spent a grand total of 6 minutes under the bar, banging out 60 continuous reps at 150 lbs. I on the other hand was able to eek out 87 reps at 110 lbs across nearly 8 minutes of continuous squatting.

Suffice to say, the task proved to be as mentally challenging as it was physically challenging. That said, a word of Advice, should you choose to tackle this challenge: When the blood coursing through your veins starts to feel like battery acid and you’re ready to quit, keep going… Victory is only a few reps away.

Here’s a snapshot of our last 3 reps; A little something to hopefully inspire you to step outside your comfort zone today.
