Bench pressed up to 285x5. Wasn't as easy as I would want that weight to be but it's possible the thumbless grip kept me from seriously exploding the weight up. Next time, grip the bar hard. I'll go up to 295x5 and from there increase in 5 pound increments weekly while monitoring my shoulder health.

Speaking of which, I think I set its recovery back a little attempting 135 lb barbell skullcrushers. I got up to 5 before changing the exercise to dumbbells. Was seriously hard on the front delt.
