The video gives a whole new meaning to drop the weight.

Great job, Amy and Tracey finished very strong as well…


285. New PR!

Amy, Your video is amazing! You are one talented girl!

215, 225, 235, 245 fail, 245, 255
thanks for the tips Gord.

95,125,145,175,185, 205, 215 (PR), 235 (FAILED) 225 (FAILED)


I tweaked my lower back slightly at 255 and decided to call it an early night. Back squat was feeling a bit off right from the start.

205/215/225/230/235/240/245/250 PR by 30 pounds
What the… this was like something out of the twilight zone. Everything felt so light! Not exactly sure what happened. Gord told me about the leading with the butt thing, and I had the bar slightly lower then usual. Good day I guess!

Thanks for putting in the overtime for the extra reps Gord.

LOVE the picture Katie! (and the red shoes!!!!) the videos are fantastic too!!! NICE WORK!
WOD: 3 sets 10 @ 95/2×5 @ 125/1×2-3 @ 145/1×155/1×165/1×170/1×175(f)
Thanks Gord for the tips! great class!

Katie I love that picture, it is awesome. Worked up to 175lbs failed at 180, left it at that as still recovering from the week. Great work today Krista. Thanks for all of the advice Gord. Congrats Francis that is a huge gain for a new PR.

Neil – 225 lbs 230 (f) – can’t seem to get pass 225
Judy – thanks Gord for all you help it was a great class

Krista, you are looking for dynamic eleiko.com
pretty sure you can just type in adidas weightlifting shoes and its the first choice that google will come up with.
Guys name is Todd, check the clearance shoes for some pretty good deals if they have your size. Enough people have these at CFC that you can probably try some on and find a pair you like
