So I had been thinking about it and this was a close one so some of you will probably be up soon with your feats of awesomeness and accomplishments but I’m bragging about George Franchock this week! I was walking around Monday on our squat day and what did I see…. well, none other the guy who couldn’t hinge at the hips and looked like a baby deer on ice skates on day one knocking out a set of 8 low bar back squats at bodyweight…. with great form…. to fully parallel and slightly below. George has been working diligently and just gaining a little more range of motion and strength every day. He comes early to warm-up and do extra mobility work after a long day and stays late to do additional work whenever time permits and now the results are there. He’s down inches in his waist, up inches across his shoulders and squatting like, well, like a healthy adult male should be able to squat quite frankly. So, “Hell Yeah, George! Hell freakin’ yeah… keep up the great work buddy!”
