Getting more used to the wraps as this is my 3rd workout with them and my 1st doing back squats. I'm pretty happy hitting 450 and it was actually pretty easy. I'm thinking I might be good for around 470-475 right now. Pretty stoked that I should have a 500 pound squat in me this year pretty easily.

The Saxon pinching was another story. My arms are a bit tender from yesterday, especially my triceps and I was having a good sweat wearing my hoody so it was tough getting a good bight on 'er. Next time. Overall an 80% day.

Here's my 445 squat. Either a tad high or right at parallel. Tough to call at that angle and with the clothing but it gives a good sense of how easy these are coming. I'm getting to find my form on these buggers :D
