Day 4 - squats

Best squat session since my knee injury. Ripped the crap out of 445. Stopped there. Being cautious, but this was strong! I feel like I am finally back. I think I could have hit 550 with a perfect knee. That's close to a 600 straight bar at 288 bodyweight after no heavy training in forever.

Squats
145 x 3
235 x 1
235 + 60 chains x 3 (3)
235 + 60 chains x 3 (3)
285 + 60 chains x 1 (2)
235 + 120 chains x 1 (2)
265 + 120 chains x 1 (2)
295 + 120 chains x 1 (4)
325 + 120 chains x 1 (4)
235 + 120 chains x 3 (6)

26 points

Total challenge points = 539

Inclines*

*denotes i have never maxed on inclines other than a 185x2 before. so used Wendlers max calculator to determine that 195 is my "max"*

26 reps with 82% of this(160x10,8,8) is 104 points

202+104=306/1000
