Leg day double 24 kg squats, belt squats, hip sled

This was a good one. Felt strong all day with a full hour stretchout and plenty of bodyweight squats during work as my "chair" position. This is getting better all the time. Some on toes, some flatfooted. Some toes out and medium stance, some close stance and feet straight ahead.
The 24's didn't feel heavy at all today. Not in the clean or the rack or the squat. THAT has been a long time coming. Just a good day.

Double KB Front squats
2 16's x 5 x 2
2 20's x 3
2 24's x 3 x 10 sets

easy peasy. Wore the Oly shoe and it was a smart move. Felt very balanced and solid.Didn't shift at all and left leg felt as strong as right.

Belt squats ( on 20 kg plates- 1/2 deficit)
36 kg x 12 x 4 sets

these were a bit tougher after the front squats. Had to go on the plate to get the bigger bell to touch the floor. Did the first set with the oly shoe then went to vibrams. Just felt right to do so. Used tug of war style and it is really helping.
had delusions of grandeur about 15+ rep squat sets but no go. Yet. :)

Hip sled
95 lbs x 250 ft x 4 laps

was thinking five as it was very very strong, even after all that leg work but I let it stay at four. don't be greedy. tomorrow is the real test.
Make sure to get on the floor and the roller tonight and unglue things
