I didn't really bury anything tonight. I was focusing on depth on all sets of squats, and upon viewing the vids in slo-mo, I thought I hit legal depth for the most part. The last 5X5 set of 380 was so hard, but I got it done. I didn't have much left, but i wanted to do a couple of singles at my potential opening weight for the meet. Even tho I was wasted, I thought I hit legal depth. I tried 2 different stances. I thought I hit a bit better depth on the "narrower" stance. On Saturday, I think I will bring in my stance for my mock meet squats. I think I will be able to hit depth better this way. Up until now it has been all wide stance squats.

I am also not feeling well, as I have caught a cold. My supercharged immune system seems to be fighting off tho. better this week than next I say!! I almost hurled after that last set of 380 squats.

I am quite confident I will nail all my openers on Saturday. Here is a link to the "my first meet" info for the CPU. It appears as though they will be more forgiving on my first lift if I tell them this is my first meet.
