Another fun work out. Still feeling strong and the work out numbers still keep going up. My goals for the competition coming up in November will be a sure thing.

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Squats - 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/8 reps, 315lbs/4 reps, 405lbs/1 rep.

Power Phase
Squats (belt and knee sleeves) - 3 sets/1 rep/455lbs, 3 sets/1 rep/465lbs.
*5 minutes rest between sets*
465lbs Squat VIDEO

Pump Phase
Box Squats (16 inches) - 5 sets/4 reps/315lbs, 1 set/6 reps/315lbs.
*3 minutes rest between sets*

The 16 inch box squats were right at parallel. The 465lbs squats felt mildly heavy but very comfortable. Core work is the only thing left this week.
