Breaking The 3-Plate Barrier: 315lbs x 3 Squat! (*Vid)

Thanks for reading! I'm currently prepping for SPF Myrtle Beach Full Power February 28th (I know, it's right around the corner). Last night I took my squat opener of 315lbs for a set of 3, which felt amazing considering 315lbs for a single has been my best raw squat ever.  This training cycle has gone amazingly well, and although I despise raw lifting, I feel like a 1,000lb raw total @ 148lbs is within reach. To get that I must hit a 350lb squat, 225lbs bench, and 425lb deadlift. There's no room for error; if I miss any one of my projected lifts, I won't make the 1,000lbs total.  Sweaty palms, Sweaty palms! I'm on track right now and feeling great, so let's see where this goes!

So, Matthew got me floor seat tickets to Jason Aldean for Valentine's Day. There's nothing like being able to sing my lil' off-key heart out... and no one can hear me! It was an amazing show. That was Awesome Valentine's Day Present #1. Awesome Valentine's Day Present #2 was a relatively easy squat triple @ 315lbs, which is nothing short of a miracle considering 315x1 was my best raw squat for years and years. I guess raw training is what you make of it, because even though I love geared lifting I'm actually seeing progress in my raw lifts (which will surely carryover into my geared ones). Here's how this went:
