Charles and I were having some fun on Saturday and decided to have a “glute-off” (hip thrust contest).
515 was easy for both of us.
We both got 605 too – I think I did better with this weight than he did. *This is a hip thrust PR for me and Charles!
We both failed with 655, but I think he did better with this weight than I did.
I have several years of hip thrusting experience on Charles, and I weigh more than him, giving him the advantage in a tie-situation.
Who do you think won? You make the call!
