I was gone to Winnipeg last week and only managed one work out while there. Today I was back into the Powerhouse for a great squat work out.

Warm Up
Stationary Bike - 5 minutes.
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - 135lbs/10 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps.

Working Sets
Squats - 405lbs/2 reps, 425lbs/2 reps, 455lbs/1 rep, 455lbs/1 rep.
*Super Set the Following*
Lying Leg Curls - 3 sets/12 reps/90lbs.
Seated Leg Ext - 3 sets/12 reps/140lbs.
Standing Calf Raises - 3 sets/12 reps/300lbs.

Cool Down
Stationary Bike - 5 minutes.

425lbs for a double is a PB for me. I would have went 405lbs for a triple but I got too far forward on my toes while driving up. A good solid squat work out.
