    Exactly, as long as you get the required sets/reps. I've also gone for an extra rep or two on my last working set.

    Bench:
    bar x some
    135x8
    185x5
    225x3

    Close Grip Bench:
    225x10
    225x10
    225x7 (rested 10 seconds and got my last 3 to make it 10)

    Barbell Rows:
    185x10
    185x10
    185x10
    185x10
    185x10

    Today wasn't as explosive as I thought it was gonna be but it was still a good day. Next meet is probably gonna be in March due to craziness in my life right now. However, that gives me lots of time to put alot of weight on my total.

    Friday 10/5/12 - Squat

    Squat:
    135x5
    135x5
    185x5
    225x5
    275x3
    315x3
    365x1
    Working Sets (added belt and wraps)
    405(85%) x 5 x 3 sets

    Close Stance/ High Bar Squats:
    225x8
    225x8
    225x8

    I have never squatted 405 for more than 3 reps so I guess every working set tonight was a PR, LOL. Everything felt pretty good tonight. Form felt a little off still but I honestly think its no big deal and it will come back. Nothing terrible.
