Back Squats 5x5, 2x2, 1x5
1.65, 2.90, 3.115, 4.135, 5.145, 6.150, 7.155, 8.65
Squats felt good at 145, and so tried 150. I noticed that after racking the bar, and forcing several deep breaths, I felt more confident in the squat for that weight. I repeated process for second rep, (two big breaths and confidence increased and completed rep. Same process for 150 and worked well. Must include this tactic in next lifting session

Med-ball situps 4x10
Russian twists with med ball 4x10
