Failed to deadlift 520 yesterday. Didn't even get a struggle out of it, I just mentally couldn't get it more than an inch off the floor before I'd involuntarily bail. Considering how easy 510 was last week I should have had this, but s'okay. When this happens I just move on to assistant work that makes my back strong and inevitably set a PR one or two weeks later.

Bench press:
245 x 5
280 x 3
310 x 4
> Pec tendon hurt a little on the first set only, as a result from jumping up from my last warm-up of 135 to 245. I usually throw a 185 in between there and maybe a 225 but was in a hurry.

Incline bench:
175 x 3 x 10

Kroc rows:
160 x 22
> Grip is beat up so I used a strap. Rather than try to squeeze out 3 sets I'm taking Kroc's recommendation of warming-up to one set.

At the park:

Incline push-ups:
25, 20, 20, 10

Inverted rows:
30, 25, 20, 11
