3/26 Squat Opener test..

Today Dan wanted to check his depth and test his squat opener plans.. So I met him at the gym for a second set of eyes..

He hit 365 with confidence, then 385.

It took us only 1 or 2 squats to get him to competition depth, but he always maintained good bar speed and kept his chest up at all times.. Great job Dan!

I took this opportunity to do a little back work myself, just to test the waters and see how it felt squatting, now nearly 3 weeks after my lower back Deadlift injury.. Good news.. No pain... I was able to work up to 275 for 2 or 3 sets of 3 reps.. Felt good and strong, and towards the end I felt confident I was actually hitting the bar with near maximal speed and power..and the lower back held together. I decided to end it at 275 on a good note, and save 315 for a new day!
