Heavy Squats

I'm trying to bike to and from work while maintaining my current weight routine. So far things are going well but then again, it's only the first week. Tuesday and tonight I rode my bike. Today however, was heavy squats.

Squats - 135lbs/6 reps, stretch, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/4 reps, 315lbs/2 reps.
Bench Squats - 315lbs/4 reps, 365lbs/4 reps, 405lbs/3 reps, 455lbs/1 rep.

Core Work
10 sec Crunches - 10 reps.
Lying Leg Raises - 20 reps.
Elbow Plank - 1min 10sec.
Trunk Twists - 40 reps.

The squats felt really good. I making sure to take a narrow"er" stance. My legs cycling into work, after this work out, felt quite good. I was surprised. I was also supposed to do rack pulls but I was really short on time. Tomorrow is board presses.
