Training like a warrior!!! My lower back is still a bit weak from the Deadlift competition on Saturday so I wore my belt for all squats today. Not my heaviest work out but lots of sets.

Warm Up
Foam Rolling.
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (with belt) - 8 sets/1 rep/405lbs.
*3 minutes rest between sets*

Pump Phase
Squats (with belt) - 5 sets/4 reps/315lbs, 1 set/3 reps/315lbs.
*3 minutes rest between sets*

I really had to dig down deep to pull this one out. I wanted to sit and watch the Olympics and put off training. Glad I manned up and got under the bar. All the reps of every set felt heavy. Next week will be a different story I'm sure.
