Squats (with chains)

Great training tonight. Decided to do my Pump Phase with chains. Let the fun begin!!!

Warm Up
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps.
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (with belt only) - 4 sets/1 rep/415lbs.
*5 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Squats + Chains (with belt only) - 3 sets/4 reps/275lbs + 120lbs chain, 3 sets/4 reps/285lbs + 120lbs chain.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

Power Phase Squats felt a little heavy but I was still able to focus on speed and control. This is a good weight for a while. The Pump Phase Squats were excellent. A little light at the bottom but much heavier at the top. 285lbs to 405lbs. Tomorrow training will include a walk to the Powerhouse and some Bench Press.
