5/3/1 – Back Squat: Cycle 2, Exposure 1

Movement Prep
Foam rolled for ~10 minutes, paying lots of attention to hamstring, quad, IT band.
Lax ball loving for ~5 minutes especially above and below the knee. Really went to work on the right leg.

Back Squats
Warm Up: 5 × 125, 5 × 160, 3 × 190
Work Weight: 5 × 205, 5 × 235, 11 × 265
Theoretical 1RM: 366

Felt strong up to the 6th rep, thought the 7th rep would be it, then caught my breath and then pounded out the remaining 4.
Am considering buying a belt and more 45lbs plates for this cycle I’ll soon be approaching 300lbs for reps.
