Squat today felt more like normal. My left side is still bothersome but my knees, back, and thighs were in it to play. Here's how it went.

Warm Up
Foam Rolling - back and hamstrings.
Squats - 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (belt only) - 6 sets/1 rep/415lbs.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Squats (no belt) - 3 sets/4 reps/275lbs, 3 sets/5 reps/275lbs.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

All reps felt good although I am searching for depth on the Power Phase. When I dip below parallel I break tightness and my sticking point really shows. If I hit parallel and come back up it's a much better / easier lift. Something to focus on.
