Comments:

* I scraped my left front shoulder doing this last rep. I am still learning this exercise. Perhaps it was my technique or maybe the shirt I was wearing was notĀ appropriate for doing this exercise. Nevertheless, it is exciting to set a new PR and know that once I improve my technique I will lift some serious weight in the front squat.
