Squats and Bench Press with Chains

Today's work out was brutal. Temperature out side and in the garage is 27 degC. It rained earlier today so the humidex is off the charts. My guess is 33 degC. Not my best work out but I thanked my training partner for dragging me through it.

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

Power Phase
Squats (with belt) - 8 sets/2 reps/365lbs.
Bench Press  - (warm ups first) 8 sets/1 rep/315lbs.

Pump Phase
Squats (with belt) - 245lbs + 120lbs chain/3 sets/6, 8, 9 reps.
Bench Press - 3 sets/8 reps/115lbs + 120lbs chain/3 sets/8 reps.

Vicious work out. I constantly battled in my mind to find some excuse to quit. Now I'm plum tuckered out and in need of a nap.
