The Race Is Over! Find Out Who Won the 550lb Back Squat Challenge: Adam Klink or Ben Smith?

Ben Smith and Adam Klink, the head coach at CrossFit Krypton, had a little friendly back squat competition with a big goal. Who hit the 550 kg first?

The guys started to train in September making small improvements every day until the winner was known.

Adam Klink posted his insane 550 squat yesterday. 

Ben Smith admitted his rival got there first and takes him as a big inspiration:

“OK @adamklink you win, that was crazy!! 550# (1/3 body weight?). Got me fired up! It’s inspiring watching someone set a goal and just get after it every day! Nicely done, SIR! 🦍”
