* PR for regular squats is 320x7. I am very pleased with 320x5 for several reasons:

1. Strength is very movement specific and I have been squatting almost exclusively with chains lately which is a different beast than regular squats.

2. I had at least one in the tank.

3. When I went for the 320x7, I purposefully was trying to hit a PR so I minimized fatigue leading up to that set. So in regards to this workout, I would have probably only hit 220 for 2 or 3 and 270 for a single. This could have gotten me another rep at 320.

Therefore, strength on regular squats has been at least maintained while focusing on squatting with chains.
