Heavy Squats

I'm still working on speed with heavier weights. I need to trust my gear more and just drop right into it.

Z-Suit = I'm wearing an Inzer Z-Suit, why, for shits and giggles.
Wraps = I'm wearing APT Convict knee wraps.
Belt = I'm wearing my belt, duh.

Squats - bar/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/3 reps, 315lbs/2 reps (belt), 315/3 reps (belt/wraps), 365lbs/2 reps (belt/wraps), 405lbs/1 rep (belt/wraps), 405/1 rep (z-suit/belt), 405lbs/1 rep (z-suit/belt), 405lbs/2 reps (z-suit/belt), 405lbs/1 rep (belt/wraps).

Heavy Squats

I'm pleased with the 405lbs/2 reps. I dropped into the suit and rebounded up. With knee wraps and a decent suit I should be way up with this technique. I'll keep at it. I'll also try a different suit next time.
