and didn't quite make it. I had been increasing my max squat by 5 lbs a week, but last night I was feeling good and decided to up my last rep by 15 lbs, up to 340.
First attempt I didn't even get close. I went down and lost it. Good thing Jason is such a big guy because he did most of the work helping me back up.
I waited a few minutes and tried again, focusing on powering back up when I hit parallel. I made it farther than the first attempt, but lost momentum right at the toughest point of the lift. Jason gave me a little help and I was able to finish but I didn't do it all on my own.
But trying for 340 and just missing is better than easily doing 330.
