Karen killed it yesterday at a Squat Off!!!! 51 reps with 185lbs!!
She read about it on line last week and said fuck it Im doin it! It was a set weight of 185 for the women, as many reps as you can do, winner takes home $1000.00! They had a pro bodybuilder, a top national competitor and then walk ins. Our friend, Shawna Mendelson, was doing it also, she is a world class powerlifter and record holder in the squat. Karen didnt let it bother her. She was second to go and banged out 51 fucking reps!!! It was insane. Some of the guys their had her pegged for no more than 15! Shawna got somewhere in the 30s and the national level woman, Bonnie, got in the high 40s as did Nicole Ball the pro. Karen tore it up! The other competitors were in the 30s as well. So she takes home the win and $1000.00! THe guys had to do the same with 405, thats a a lot of weight to have on your back! We met a guy by the name of Dave Smith from Philly, the dude was an animal, he got 23 reps, this other dude from Albany hammered out 27 and then Jose Raymond pulled out the win with 30 reps with 405, thats insane! All in all a good day and I hate bodybuilding events!
