Monday Max Effort Squat/Deadlift

Another Monday Max Effort has come and gone and I can't help but feel better for it. Here's how things went.

Squats - 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/6 reps.
*Knee wraps*
Squats - 405lbs/3 reps.
*Over a bench*
Squats - 455lbs/1 rep, 455lbs/2 reps, 465lbs/1 rep.

Heavy Walk Outs - 545lbs, 585lbs, 615lbs (12 sec hold).

Rack Pulls - 405lbs/3 reps, 495lbs/1 rep, 545lbs/1 rep, 545lbs/1 rep (8 inch rack).

Sit Ups - 20, 10, 10 reps.

Today's work out felt very strong. The squats are up and I'm feeling much more comfortable with the heavier weights. The rack pulls from well below the knee feel more productive than about the knee. High rack pulls became a method to injury. Better this way.
