***This was a pretty good squat day for me.  The last time I did 650 for triples I stopped after 2 sets.  I felt as though I could have done 4-5 sets today.  On the first set I felt as though I could definitely have done a 4th rep and possibly a fifth.  The second set was rough on the second rep but it was technique not strength so I went for the third.  The 3rd set felt pretty grooved, slower, but grooved.  I did not do more sets because I want to attempt to pull 750+ Deadlift on Thursday and to squat in the 700s ball park on Saturday.  So far the two lifts i love are going very well....and the lift I loathe...well..not only is it my weakest link and lift...  Ican't train it until my damn shoulder gets better..... a 2000 lb total seems very unlikely without a bench press in the upper 400's dabbling on 500....and right now, the thought of my usual opener 440 lbs, sends sharp stabbing pains to my soul.  But bright side: I'M GOING TO SQUAT BIG AND DEADLIFT BIG!!  We'll see how the rest of this week of reckoning goes.

Compare to: a few weeks out from RUM5. Last December,  650 x 3 x 2 sets

I am over 9 weeks out from Clash for Cash.  So I have plenty of time to make more improvements.  At RUM 5 back in January, I felt as though I had that 738 lb squat on the third attempt...it was close......and I was out with a crazy back injury 4 weeks going into that meet....so I think I am on the road to a biiig squat given that I still have plenty of time....
