2 weeks out, day 3, squats and deadlift assistance

Tonight's plan was to work up to a heavy squat single and then three triples with 75% in the deadlift.  Felt pretty tired all day just cause it's the end of the week but squats felt pretty good despite some nagging sciatic pain.  I decided against taking any ibuprofen before the workout in order to keep my training conditions more adverse than what I'd face on meet day.

Since I weighed 235 lbs today, my top single of 475 marked the first time I've ever hit 2xBWT in training.  475-480 or 217.5 or 220 kgs will probably be second attempt territory.  Instead of stiff-legged deadlifts, I just did some 75% triples in the regular, conventional deadlift.  I worked on my competition stance, heels close, feet turned slightly out, and got some good speed off the ground.

Squats:  135x10. 225x5, lowbar, 295x3, add belt, 345x3, add wrist wraps, 385x2, 435x1, 455x1, 475x1

Deadlifts:  315x3, 405x3, add belt, 465x3x3 sets
