5/3/1 Round 2: Squat 3RM

All Notation: Weight x Reps x Sets

Parallel Box Squats: 95x5, 125x5, 155x5, 185x3, 210x2, 245x3, 255x3, 270x3 (Rep Out Set), 155x10x5

One of our close-knit group of 3 was headed back to the US today, so we went to dinner at around 7PM before dropping him off at Djibouti Airport. Since I got off watch at 4AM, had to get some sleep, and had a dental appointment at 2PM, I kept this workout short and sweet. Used the Boring but Big template: that's the 155x10x5 set after the heavy stuff. The 3 reps with 270 lbs were smooth and I didn't pull anything like the last session. Unlike the last time, I decided to do the BBB sets with 50% 1RM vice 60%. Even then, I barely got them done: my legs were fried and I felt like I had run a couple of miles.
