My squats today were:

Bar x 10
145 x 5
235 x 3
325 x 1

375 x 1
375 x 2
375 x 3
375 x 4
375 x 8

On my last set I felt like I could have hit 15 (if it wasn't for my vacation food hangover, and inability to breathe). Everything from my CNS to connective tissue felt really good. I will definitely be trying this again soon.
That looks great!

The uber-body geek in me wants to know what the extent of the motor unit recruitment is with that protocol?
I do data bruh!
