    7x195 - Damn this felt good today. 170 and 180 felt a little on the heavy side but 195 felt like 155... rep speed was good. Last rep was a little slow but I felt like I could have gotten another slow grindy rep so I racked it with one left in the tank.

    5x10x115

    Weighted Dips
    5x5 +45 lbs - These felt easier than the +40 lbs... may need to either up the reps or jump a little more weight.

The tweak went away about the 3rd set of assistance deads... Still really happy with the workout. Lovin deadlifts still!

    Hey Fooz. Yeah it was really only one day of back pain then it was 100% gone. I'm glad too cuz it didn't feel like a "normal" pulled muscle but it's gone now.

    And thanks yeah deads are still my fav lift

    2x215 - Shoulda had 3 or 4 on this... got a major cramp in my back during the 2nd rep so I just racked it. Bumped my assistance up since they've been way too easy. Still felt pretty easy... but a lot better though

    5x10x135

    Weighted Dips
    5x5 +45 lbs - The 5x10@135 made these a little harder but they were still doable and not too bad.
