Today was squat day, I am currently 4 days from competition day. I am ecstatic for this competition and the rest of the week is somewhat tapering for it. The rest of the week I will be working light weight for slow and controlled reps, working on for and a higher rep routine just to keep the muscles warmed up and ready to compete.
Today first I did:

135 for a set of 10
155 for 8
185 for 5
205 for 5
225 for 5 sets of 3 reps, this was the main lift that I focused on slow and controlled.
5 sets of 5 reps at 135 with resistance bands
I finished off my legs with:
5 sets of 5 at 135 with a short pause at the bottom
You will notice my workouts are now much shorter and easier in preparation for the meet Saturday. I will be focusing on controlled lowering of weight with a short pause then and explosive move upward on bench and squats. Dead lifts will be form and controlled for the week.
