I seldom do this but I forgot an import piece of lifting gear today. I left behind my knee sleeves. Oh well, I can still Squat with out them.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and lots of Stretching.
OH Band Squats - 6 reps.
Squats - 2 sets/6 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/2 reps.

Power Phase
Squats (with belt, no knee sleeves) - 405lbs/1 rep, 405lbs/1 rep, 405lbs/2 reps, 425lbs/1 rep, 455lbs/miss.

Pump Phase
Squats (with belt, no knee sleeves) - 315lbs/6 reps, 335lbs/4 reps, 335lbs/5 reps.

I was running short on time and I had to work so I cut it short. I trained at work today in a new rack and different bar. I found my stance narrowing again. It wasn't until after the double 405lbs that I widened my stance. 425lbs felt steady and controlled hense, why I went for 455lbs. In my knee sleeves 455lbs would have went up no problem. Still today's training was good. Bring on Christmas dinner!!!
