2 weeks out, bench press and squat accessory

Had the opportunity to get to the gym today instead of tomorow so I decided to start my "2 weeks out" training a day early.  Banking an extra day of recovery should help since the meet is coming up soon.  I lowered the intensity of my volume work a little bit to serve as a very slight un-load before the final push to the meet.

Squat assistance work was pretty tough since I had deadlifted pretty hard only two days before.  Speed and tightness in the hole was dramatically affected so I kept the weights light on the sumo deadlifts and really tried to concentrate on form.  Lower back is still highly pumped so even the 60% intensity level was more than enough.

Bench Press:  135x10, 185x10, 225x5, 255x3, add wrist wraps, 275x2, 295x2, add belt, 315x2, just wrist wraps, 275x6, 275x5, 275x4

High Bar Squats:  135x10, 225x10, 225x10

Sumo deadlifts:  315x5, 315x5, 315x5
