    Squat - Bar x 10, 95 x 10, 145 x 10, 235 x 5, 325 x 3... add suit bottoms - 415 x 2, 505 x 2, 555 x 2, 595 x 1, 645 x 1... add straps and wraps - 685 x 1, 715 x 1, 755 x 1

    My Hamstring / groin on the left side was tight / cramping while warming uo... so I cautiously threw the gear on earlier than I usually would and kind of played it by ear as far as how long I would continue. Squatting went well, but I figured I wouldn't continue to push my luck and just foam rolled and hit the road.
