I love back squats, I really do. I came to the workout thinking I was going to scale back on the number of reps, but due to the frenzied pace of the 12 o'clock class, I just went for the full monty. 50 reps is a lot. So is 40. So is 30. What did I sign up for? I'm really happy that I survived, cause my round of 20 reps @ 75#s was extremely difficult, that I was unsure of my capability of bangin' out another 10 @ 85#s. I did those last 10 in sets of 2, accompanied with a lot of grunting and grimacing. My legs and hips were just gassed at that point. With Patsy watchin' my back, I got through it somehow. 

Yesterday, Monday, was the first day of the Zone Challenge. My starting weight is 104.6# and my body fat is 25.4% per my bathroom scale. Last year, November 2009, I was 119.4#s and 31.8% BF. 

Let's see what happens.
