Good to see someone else who is into doing pullups / chinups like I am. I'm working at being able to do one arm chins to0, but I'm about where you are right now - I can only come up a couple of inches

power rack squats

I think it was....
bottom position 225x1, 275 fail
next 225x1, 275x1 barely
next 275x1, 315 fail
next 315x1 barely
next 315x1, 365x1 barely
next 365x1, 405x1 and quit with ROM remaining in 3 or 4 more notches. Must take it slow as gave self heart attack 6 or 7 years ago by jumping immediately to 600 quarters. Also now have herniated disc injury which feels OK after todays workout.

I thought the pulled muscle in my right lat/back was from negatives but now I remember.... I felt the sting when I missed the cue ball while playing billiards. I jokingly said at the time I thought I had just pulled a muscle. I had. I injured myself playing billiards.
