Squats and Bench Press

Squats as of late have been a point of frustration. Last night at 2000hrs I was extreemly motivated to squat and my numbers showed this. The first rep of my fourth set I feel a pinch in my left adductor muscle again. This shows me one thing. I'm not a young man any more and I have to spend time stretching and warming up properly.

Warm Up
Squats - 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/6 reps.

Working Sets
Squats (with belt) - 3 sets/2 reps/381lbs, 1 rep/381lbs OUCH!!!

Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 225lbs/10 reps, 3 sets/2, 3, 3 reps/315lbs, 1 set/2 reps/335lbs, 2 sets/2 reps/325lbs.

Eventhough I screwed up the squats my Bench Press was really working well. The best Bench I've had in a while. The pressing power is coming back nicely. Tomorrow, Deadlifts and Shoulder Press. Lots of foam rolling before Friday.
