We have been back in the free weights gym located at the Brittany holiday cottage and both of us have retained our strength levels that we had prior to having a few weeks off.
I'm squatting 150kg for 8 deep reps while Naomi manages 10 reps for 110 kg using a shallower squat.
For the new season at the Brittany holiday cottage our intention is to purchase additional equipment for the gym, including a pair of 20kg disk allowing any one with the strength to squat 200 kg.
My goal will be to get up to a 200 kg squat next year - my personal best was 220 kg for 3 reps but I was 30 years old then.

Having a free weights gym located at the Brittany holiday cottages is a wonderful bonus for guest wishing to take a French holiday and have access to a gym.
La Forge is available to rent all year where as La Veille Maison is available just during the summer months.
