With a full week off from Squats and lots of foam rolling to start today's work out, I was feeling pretty good.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and lots of Stretching.
Foam Rolling Calves and Hamstrings.
Squats - 65kg/8 reps, 65kg/4 dynamic reps, 105kg/4 reps, 145kg/2 reps.

Power Phase
Squats - 2 sets/1 rep/185kg.
At this point I wanted to try out my Inzer TRX Squat suit.
Squats (suit) - 1 set/2 reps/185kg.
The suit was too small and the reps were no where near parallel.
Squats (suit bottoms) - 1 set/1 rep/185kg.
Still no where near parallel.
Squats (knee sleeves and belt) - 1 set/1 rep/215kg!!!
Squats - 1 set/1 rep/185kg.

Pump Phase
Squats - 6 sets/4 reps/105kg.

I am very pleased with a 215kg Squat. My personal best is 220kg. I am well underway this year to squatting 500lbs (227.5kg). PS, the adductor from last week didn't both me at all today although I was still cautious of it.
