1 week out, peaking singles, squat and bench press

Sunday's squat singles did a good job of getting my body out of vacation mode and back into meet-peaking mode because things felt good tonight.  I was going to work up to a top single of 485 but shut it down early because I was feeling little back spasmy feelings in my upper glutes/lower back. It was probably a result of having to shovel the driveway for the first time this year earlier this evening.   Even still, 465 and 475 moved well and everything seems to be rounding into 1RM form nicely.  It'll be nice to compete as a 105 kg lifter without having to cut any weight and I'm expecting to peak right up to meet day versus previous meets as a 105 where I peaked a week out and then tried to hold on to as much as possible while I cut 7-8 lbs.

Bench press singles went well too.  My top single of 340 is the most I've handled in a meet peaking situation ever so I'm confident I'll hit at least 155 kgs for a new 105 kg wt class PR.

Squats:  135x5, 135x5, 225x3, low bar, 225x3, add belt, 315x3, 365x2, add wrist wraps, 405x1, 435x1, 455x1, 475x1, 435x1, 465x1

Bench Press:  all reps paused, 135x5, 135x5, 225x3, 255x3, 275x2, add wrist wraps, 295x1, 315x1, 335x1, 340x1
