Entry #966

280 x 5 (forgot that I was only supposed to do 3)
320 x 4
360 x 5
> Smoothest and easiest set of squats I've done in quite a while. After months of changing forms and trying to find a sweet spot to accommodate my shoulder I've finally found my groove. I'm doing low bar squats now, too. All sets were ATG, since I'm descending quickly and taking advantage of the stretch-reflex to bounce out of the hole.

145 x 5, 6, 6, 6

Leg press:
5 plates x 10
> Just getting some easy extra volume in since I've been skimping on the accessory work for squat day lately. Wanna know what's sad? I can let the machine come all the way down on me and it's still not enough to equal the range of my squat depth.

RKC planks:
60 secs, 15, 9 

Using PWO shakes less and less, pretty much only on upper-body days. After this I simply had dinner.

Entry #965

Woke up at 5:22 today. 5 hours of sleep, but it was worth it to get my schedule back on a sane level where I'm not going to bed at 5 am. Felt hyperactive on the drive over.

Bench press:
215 x 3
245 x 3
280 x 7
> Last rep was tough.

Incline bench press:
190 x 8, 7, 5
155 x 8
135 x 10

Kroc rows:
125s x 20, 18, 15, 15
> Felt like I was going to vomit. Awesome. Still no straps in the mail and I forgot to bring my wrist wraps, so I gutted it out raw again. Next week I'll bring my own dumbbell handles and go much heavier. 

Preacher curls:
70 x 8, 5

Jacuzzi after. I felt dead and on the verge of puking and being in the hot tub made me feel like I wanted to take a nap right there, but after I stepped outside I felt perky and hyper again.
