Week 2 of Suit squats

Straight bar squats: 145 X 8, 235 X 5, 325 X 2, 415 X 1,
Ace briefs on: 595 X 1, 685 X 1
Ace suit bottoms: 775 X 1 really high
Straps Up: 865 X 1 really high, 905 X 1 really high
Straps down: 775 X 2 still way high.

Wheel barrow: 4 plates loaded on the closest peg to the handles for about a lap.

Having trouble getting comfortable with the notion of getting in the hole right now. It isn't the suit stopping me, so I will get over it and take one to depth eventually.

Good thing this is only a practice cycle....

Time to rest and relax and get ready for squats on Wednesday. Kinda hard to sleep when it is 85 in our apartment though. Yea, the air went out on Friday....asked them to fix it...no luck.....then they closed 2 days for the 4th and here I sit with no air still. Apartment living is great!
