2 weeks out, squat and bench accessory

This was my last squat session with significant volume.  I felt a little slow and had to work around a small spasm in the piriformis/sciatic nerve area.  Got in some good work though and will be looking forward to the last week of training and meet week to get strong and fast.  Next week volume on my heavy squat day will be singles only and on meet week, I'll get in the gym early in the week to get in about 4-5 singles in the 90-95% range.

Hit some new volume numbers on bar dips, makes a big difference when I'm not pre-fatigued from bench pressing first.  The dips took their toll on the rolling dumbbell tricep extensions though. One more hard deadlift workout later this week.

Squats:  135x10, 225x10, 275x5, add belt, 315x3, add wrist wraps, 365x3, 405x2, 435x1, 405x3, 405x3, 405x2, 365x5

Bar Dips:  15, 15, 11

Rolling dumbbell tricep extensions:  52.5x 5, 52.5x5, 52.5x7
DB curls:  52.5x5, 52.5x5, 52.5x5

I've been told I resemble Grumpy Cat.  I'm not sure I see the resemblance...
