    Fun morning with the 5:30am boys. Congrats to all – huge effort and focus…got goosebumps several times watching PB’s being smashed.

    CFT = 250

    Back Squat – 87.5
    Press – 42.5
    Deadlift – 120

    Stef reminded me I had done the CFT some months ago. Came home to check my journal and sure enough he was right. On 11/10/10 my CFT was 167.5 (60/32.5/75). Really nice to have a measurable comparison of my progress. Thanks for the support this morning Stef & 5:30am crew, it really helped hearing your cheers with the heavier loads.

    That’s a massive effort Laila, almost 50% increase in 5 months, Well done = ), I’ll be happy if i can get a 20% increase

    I’ll give you something heavy to move Michelle 🙂

    Awesome effort Laila!

    Who else has smashed their PB’s???

  6. Laila said

    Thanks Daniel! 🙂 My previous CFT was done when I first started at the Cell, my very first work out in fact. I was lifting very conservatively then. I was focusing on learning technique before I loaded the bar. So while it is 50% improvement, the margin is fairly significant because I had plenty of scope to improve. When you have something measurable like the CFT, you can’t argue the stats but in my case there is another explanation for the improvement. The next time I do a CFT, it will show a better indication of “true” improvement as I am now reaching my max in lifts.

    Good luck and have fun with your CFT – looking forward to hearing about your experience.

    Michelle, I love your spirit! Lots of people/athletes use injury as an excuse to remove themselves from training. You work straight through the injury, finding smart ways to train while healing. You are an inspiration to me!!! If a CFT measured dedication and effort, you would score off the spectrum! 🙂
