Last bench day before the comp.  Just doing paused reps until I get a weight that causes a bit of a grind.  I was training by myself today.

Bench press: 135x8, 185x5, 225x3, 275x3, 315x2, 365x1, 405x1, 425x1, 440x1

WideGripStrictChins: 2 sets x 30 reps

Very, very light squat day.  I just used this day to work on technique with a very very light weight(roughly 60%).
Front Squat: 135x5, 225x3, 315x2
Back Squat: 425lbs x 8 x 3 sets
Box Jumps '42:   5 reps x 2sets

Bench(pause):135x5, 185x5, 225x3, 275x3, 315x2, 365x1, 405x1, 425x1
I didn't feel very grooved in my bench I didn't want to go any heavier and doing more sets would simply add volume which I do not care for at this point.

WideGripStrictChins: 30 reps x 2 sets

Last heavy squat day before my competition.  Attempted more than I have ever attempted before.

Front Squat: 135x5, 225x3, 315x2
Back Squat: 405x2, 455x1, 495x1, 545x1, (add belt) 585x1, 635x1, 675x1, 710 x fail  (unrackin it it felt good and not overwhelming, it went down very nicely with good control...I think that i was analyzing too much on the way down...when I should have remained focused on standing up as well)  THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN.
