ME Squats / Deadlifts

I'm working days this week so getting work out time will be a premium. I bumped up tomorrow's work out to today. Glad I did.

Warm Up - Stationary Bike - 6 minutes.
ME Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps (belt), 405lbs/2 reps (belt, knee wraps), 415lbs/2 reps (belt, knee wraps, loose suit), 455lbs/2 reps (belt, knee wraps, loose suit).
Deadlifts - 315lbs/3 reps, 3 sets/1 rep/405lbs (various stances).
Declined Sit Ups - 3 sets/20 reps.
Weighted Trunk Twists - 3 sets/30 reps/20lbs bar.

I feel much better about my squat than last week. The suit I was using is a size 52 NXG sumo deadlift suit. It seems to give a bit more support than my singlet. Not much. Everything else was good.
