Squats in the new rack

I really like my new rack. Here is a picture of the set up.
Yesterday was Squats. Still not motivated to go crazy but I felt much stronger yesterday.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - bar/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (with belt and knee sleeves) - 5 sets/1 rep/405bs.
*ample rest between sets*

Pump Phase
Squats - 315lbs/4 reps.

Walking - 2km, 25 minutes.

I really enjoyed squatting. The weight was enough to respect it but light enough to focus on some technical issues. I was interrupted during the pump phase so I called it quits. The walk after really hit my core and did in fact pump up my legs.
