Today, my goal was to hit 665lbs in the squat for 1 triple.

Front Squat: 135lbs x 5, 225lbs x 3, 315lbs x 2
Back squat: (no belt) 405lbs x 2, 455lbs x 1, 495lbs x 1, 545lbs x 1
(add belt) 585lbs x 1, 635lbs x 1, 665lbs x 2 (attempted 3rd rep but failed, VIDEO), 665lbs x 2 (grinded)

Finished off with some BOX JUMPS('42): 5 sets of 5 reps

Feeling pretty fried.  665lbs x 2 reps is still a personal best.....although i was hoping for a 3rd rep.
In October of 2009, at the 1st Raw Powerlifting World Championships in Russia, I squatted 667lbs for a very rough single....14 months later I can 'almost' do that weight for 3 reps.  This may seem like slow progress to some.....but believe me...when the weights are getting this heavy....THAT's PROGRESS!!
