Default Squat Fail

I spent about 4 days celebrating my 3 y/o b-day. Took him to disney, tons of gifts and cake

Last night was my first training day since thursday, and I did the following

Warmup:
- Parkour... lazy, turn and thief vaults
- Air squats for stretching to depth (about 3 sets)

Back Squats
- 2 x 5 @ 135#
- 1 x 3 @ 185#

225#
5, 4, 2 + epic fail (had to dump the weight after I couldn't recover from a forward lean).

Because I was video-taping, I ran to the camera to see my first warm-up set and noticed I was about 4 inches high, so I really focussed on depth... probably not such a good idea when working with your max load.

This was really discouraging. Now I'm going to deload back to 205 and start over again. I'm really paying for the teen days I only wanted to bench press

After that I did some 40# weighted chin-ups, with the following progression:
6, 5, 4, 4, 4
