    Barbell back squat:

    10x225#
    8x315#
    4x405#
    0x455#
    I opened my knees too quickly compared to my hips and got stuck a little too forward, so I was forced down, sinking the bar onto the safeties.
    30x135#
    20x225#
    4x315#

    After months of squatting light due to ITB injury, it felt great to go 400+ pound again! I threw on 405 hoping to get 5 reps, but to my surprise, I was able to get twice that on my second set!

    Set 1: 405 x 8
    Set 2: 405 x 10
