Week 2, Day 1, squat sets of 8

My back muscles from top to bottom were still a bit DOMsy from Sunday's workout but it didn't inhibit my squat session tonight in a negative way.  Since I'm trying to increase work capacity and also 'toughen' up my squats a bit, I figured doing sets of 8 with a little extra fatigue would be a good exercise.

I decided to work with 365 for the sets of 8 and I was able to get through 4 sets before my form had deteriorated enough that the end of the sets were turning more into squat mornings than I wanted.  It felt good to get in some fatigued volume.

Squats:  135x5, 135x5, 225x5, low bar, 225x5, add belt, 315x5, add wrist wraps, 365x8, 365x8, 365x8, 365x8

Parallel grip chins:  5, 5, 4
