Description: This is a video of the last squat of my leg workout today. I am slowly but surely getting use to having heavy weight on my back again. 2 years ago I took a break from Powerlifting two deal with some health issues related to myy scoliosis. I have been squatting again for almost a year now. For safety reason and to help prevent injury to my back on heavy days like today I use the Pendulum Power Squat Machine. It takes the issue of balancing the weight and allows me to focus on building my strength. I do use the bar and plates up to about 300lbs then I move over to this machine. Safety comes first! I hope to be back in full meets soon but I am not placing the pressure of a time frame on myself. When I'm ready I will hit it hard. I am 92-0 I've never been beaten and I want to keep my streak going so when I come back to full meets I will set my sights on the world record in the Junior Division and the Women's Open Division too. Til then I will train hard and continue my road to 100% recovery.
Description: Warm-up set with 185lbs for 10 reps. This is Amanda "Barbie Barbell" Harris age 20 body-weight 125lbs. This is her first squat session in over 2.5 years with free weights. She is wearing a new Inzer TRX squat suit (single ply) and the new knee & wrist wraps. Amanda plans on getting back into full meets in 2012. We have not set a date yet but she is anxious to get back to the sport she loves! She was given the green light just two weeks ago from her doctor to start squatting again. We will go SLOW and rebuild her strength and I am sure when she steps back onto the competition platform she will pick-up right where she left off.....setting new world records!!!!
Description: This is the second set of squats in her first squat work-out in over 2 years. The weight on the bar is 225lbs. She completes 10 reps with ease. Wearing a single-ply TRX squat suit, straps down. This is the first time in this suit and seems to like the feel of the new material. We will not push the weight up over 300lbs today, we just wanted to see how her spine was going to handle the work-out. Amanda took two years off from full meets due to a spinal injury from her scoliosis. She was given the green light by her doctor just two weeks ago. She looks good for a first time work-out in gear in over 2 years. Thank you Inzer Advanced Designs!!!
