Max Effort Squats

Noticing a trend in competitions over the last while. Precompetition training has always gone good but I manage to peak a few weeks out. This time I'll drop a day of training and work out only one lift per day. Monday = Squats, Wednesday = Bench Press, Friday = Deadlift. Today Squats went well except I tweaked my lower back, again.

Warm Up - 6 minutes.
Squats - 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/2 reps, 405lbs/1 rep.
Squats in Gear - 405lbs/2 reps, 495lbs/2 reps, 515lbs/1 rep, 515lbs/1 rep, 525lbs/1 rep.
Walk Outs - 2 sets/hold for 10 sec/635lbs.

Right now I'm sore on my left side lower back. I took some prescribed anti-inflammatory and I'll take another before bed. Tomorrow I should feel much better. It was all worth it for the awesome work out.
