Squats in Gear

With the weight I've lost I know fit into my squat suits. Today was the day to play.

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps.
More Stretching.
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps, 405lbs/1 rep.

Power Phase
Squats - 445lbs/3 reps (suit bottoms and belt), 495lbs/2 reps (suit bottoms, belt, and knee wraps), 561lbs/1 rep (Inzer TRX suit, belt, and knee wraps).

Pump Phase
Squats (- doubled light bands) - 6 sets/4 reps/471lbs (285 to 375lbs).

I'm surprised how good the gear felt. The squats all felt high but watching the videos I was spot on. A really good work out.
