Had my first failure today, but not the way most of you are thinking. It wasn't a failure due to the weight being too heavy. As I was through my second set I felt a rip and noticed my pants had ripped right in the crotch area. Understandably I ended my set due to modesty reasons. Although, I think this weight would have been the one that would have pushed my capabilities. For the past 4-5 sessions the squats have taxed me systematically. So I believe it is time to move to a different program for my squat only.
I also was told by one of the stronger members of my gym that I had very good form on my squats. I'm very proud of this.

a. Really happy about the Press PR. Been wanting to look like a man while pressing for a long time.
b. The gym now has a gym slut. I noticed her before but I wanted to see if her antics would continue over a period of time, and it has. For those of you who do not know the gym slut is a woman (can be a man but that would be awkward) who flirts with all the stronger gentlemen in the gym. Typically the gym slut will just always happen to be doing something where the stronger guys are. Today the gym slut decided to walk over the squat rack and do 1 (one) extremely long set of stiff deadlifts. I will continue to monitor this situation as rarely does the gym slut work alone. It also should note that the gym sluts plumage is typically, well, its very sluttish.
c. A certain gentleman today did all of his work wearing one of the big chains wrapped around his neck. His work did not include dips, chins, or pushups which one can understand wearing a large chain. This certain individual did incline bench presses, upright rows, and pulldowns wearing the chain.
d. Two other gentlemen decided to use one of the bench presses to do upright rows. They stood on the bench and upright rowed. What the purpose of standing on the bench is? I have no idea.
That is all.

The squat was pretty tough today. I'm attempting to keep the bar lower on my back so I think this new positioning threw me off a little. I got the reps that's all that count.
My right wrist, which I injured years ago, has been killing me. It's hard to lock out the weight on the bench (although it may still be good in competition) and it has made my power clean rack very painful. I'm going to switch the power clean to the high pull next time around.

Squat- 280x5x5 (5x5 PR)
Press - 125x5x5 (5x5 PR)
The squats were difficult today. Last two reps on all the sets were grinders but I got them. And that is all that counts. The press wasn't difficult until the last set. And the deadlift was a breeze.
Overall, good day.
