Day 3 Pre Competition

I am Pumped Up!!! Today is the first day since Nationals I have put real weight on my Squats. Using the new form, wide grip, wide stance, flat shoes, I am getting much better hip drive and muscle activation. I have never felt more comfortable while Squatting. The power is certainly there.

Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - bar/8 reps, bar/8 reps, 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps, 430lbs/2 reps, 440lbs/2 reps, 455lbs/3 reps.
Bench Press - 135lbs/8 reps, 4 sets/4 reps/245lbs.
Deadlift - 225lbs/6 reps, 3 sets/3 reps/365lbs.

I was worried that I would fail with weight today but the opposite happened. Bring on World's.
