Heavy Squats & Walk Outs

Another great afternoon in the SANCTUM. My speed with heavier weights is getting better and I'm now working my walk outs.

Squats - bar/12 reps, 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps, Knee Wraps 405lbs/2 reps, Suit, no wraps 405lbs/4 reps, Suit and Wraps 495lbs/2 reps, 495lbs/3 reps.

Walk Outs - 545lbs/10+ sec hold, 585lbs/10+ sec hold, 635lbs/10+ sec hold.

I'll have a video later. I'm clearing up my hard drive.

I realized after I was done that 635lbs is the squat I need for National qualifying. The 495lbs squats were very easy. I could have done 5 reps for each set (but I don't compete for reps, do I?). Tomorrow is speed bench.
