Heavy squats & deadlifts

Today’s workout consisted of heavy load today with both squats and sumo deadlifts, I used low bar wide stance squats because I am working on hip mobility along with the sumo deadlift. I have noticed that what I thought was my max effort, I could have probably went up in weight on my heavier lifts — so possibly next week I will check my 1RM’s for my lifts. Normally I would have some Tri-set exercises after the core lifts but decided to end my workout with some HIIT Training.
