Squats were feeling great today. Not enough the capitalize "great" but it was pretty damn good.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Lots of Stretching.
OH Squats with Band - 1 sets/6 reps.
Squats - 20kg/6 reps, 75kg/8 reps, 75kg/ 4 dynamic reps, 115kg/6 reps, 115kg/3 dynamic reps, 155kg/2 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (with knee sleeves and belt) - 4 sets/1 rep/195kg, 1 set/1 rep/200kg, 1 set/1 rep/205kg.

Pump Phase
Squats - 45lbs/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps, 315lbs/1 rep.

...and that's enough. For the Pump Phase I went up to the main gym for a change of space. After the first set of 225lbs I had to move from the rack I was squatting in. A "one legged man" came in and sat down at the arm bicycle that was uncomfortably close to the rack I was in. I couldn't even strip the bar he was so close. Don't get me wrong, I think its great that he is in the gym working out, but... One more story to add to my commercial gym stories.
