5 weeks out, Day 4, squats

My back was very stiff this morning and it took forever to loosen up so I basically did the bare minimum for my squat workout.  I won't be deadlifting until Friday evening or Saturday so hopefully the extra recover time will allow everything to get back on track.  I think this week is a pretty good sign that squatting 4 days in a row probably isn't a workable plan while I'm still on a calorie deficit.  I think I could do it farther out from a meet when I can keep the intensity lower but being only 5 weeks out, I've got to push the intensity up from here on in.  On the plus side, I was 229 lbs this morning so I'm still on pace to be comfortably below 231 by the end of November (provided I can keep things under reasonable control while in Las Vegas for 6 days two weeks out from the meet).

Squats:  135x5, 135x5, 225x5, low bar, 225x5, add belt, 295x5, 295x5, 345x8, 345x8

Leg raises:  20, 15
