    Done...Not a bad day. The last set of bench was not my best, but i'll take it. I think my best rep set with 365 is 7 reps. So i'm not far from that at all. Tomorrow is a big day for squatting and deadlifting. I'm shooting for 5-6 reps with 570 and at least 4-5 reps with 625. I took video of my last set of bench and i'll do the same tomorrow.

    Done...Today was definitely a hard day. I got the reps I wanted, but I was hoping for one more on the squat. Oh well, maybe next time. The 625x5 looks pretty easy on video, but trust me, that last rep was tough. My hands were screaming!!! I'll try and get the video posted sometime tomorrow or Wednesday. I'm deloading next week so I won't be doing anything special. I'll be taking it nice and easy!

    A lot if it depends on how my back feels the day I'm lifting.

    Your deadlifts look absolutely dialed in! Nice!
