1 week out, day 3 squats

Tonight was the last heavy day before next Wednesday's meet.  Plan was to work up to three singles in the squat and then hit the whirlpool and steam room for more sweat adaptation.

The squat singles went very well.  The squat groove felt solid and speed was pretty good.  I hit the safety bar on the right side on my last single that caused the rep to slow down while I regained control of the bar but the weight itself felt very manageable.  Since the gym was deserted on a Friday night, I was able to flaunt the "no video" rules and get some video of my squat singles.  It's too late to actually adjust anything but I figured I might as well see what they look like now rather than take the chance of being surprised by something on meet day.


435x1, easy but a little high because it reversed faster than I expected



455x1, smooth and deep enough



475x1, hit the safety on the right so it stalled but it wasn't a grind at all

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