The Rest Is OVER!!!

I took last week off work for several reasons so it seemed like a good time to let my body heal up. If today was any indication of what my numbers will be like after this break, YIKES!!!

Warm Up
Foam Rolling.
Extensive Stretching.
Squats - 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/8 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (belt only) - 5 sets/1 rep/425lbs.
*4 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Squats (raw, no belt) - 6 sets/3 reps/315lbs.
*2 minutes rest after each set*

Tonnes on hip drive out of the hole on the Power Phase. In fact the weight didn't even feel heavy until it got to my sticking point. But then, it just slowed down a bit. A really good point to start from again after a well deserved break.
