When I was doing my job training for the Army I would train with a group of guys. None of them were consistent, and I would warn them when it was leg day with the telling title I constructed for the effort; The man maker.

Wide stance parallel box squat-
45x5
135x5
225x5
255x5
275x3

Wide stance parallel squat-
225x5
255x5
275x3
295x1
255x5 (Went super low on these. Felt good.)

Single leg step-ups on a 14" box-
45x5
95x10
95x10
95x12

Squats are still frustrating without safety rails. I need to bite the bullet and get them made. The 295 felt good. I would have gone for a deuce or even tried to go up higher, but god forbid I drop my weights on the concrete ground or hurt myself.

The step ups were a pretty good finisher. I think I prefer loaded walking lunges, but it's freaking cold outside, and screw that. Once I get better at them and can load them heavier I think it'll be a good movement.
