So, I had planned to increase my squats. Ended up being total crap. After warming up with a few sets of 135 and 225 I moved on to 315. No accessories - no belt, no wraps, etc. I was only able to do two singles at 315 and got pinned at the bottom. So I took two plates off and squatted bottom up from 225. I did a few paused at the bottom, then a bunch of fast 135s, then a bunch of 135s from the bottom, then a few more 225s. I'm pretty sure I've lost a lot of strength on this cut. Switching things up from straight powerlifting style to mixed BB style machine work hasn't been good for my legs.
Until I get my strength back I think I have to go old school again. Squat, bench, deadlift. Maybe 5/3/1 BBB. Then I can go squat Mon, bench tues, dl weds, bench thurs, squat fri.
