    didn't eat before the gym today. I think it's starting to have an effect on my lifting but work makes it hard with the hours.

    deadlifts:
    135x10
    225x8
    315x3 (felt really really heavy)
    315x5
    365x0 failed
    365x1
    365x1
    365x1

    I was so light headed from not eatting after the last 365 i basically blacked out and fell into a group of people.

    bb row:
    185x8x3
    205x5

    lat pulldowns:
    120x10
    130x6x2
    120x6

    DB row:
    75x8

    there were to gay guys who were just talking and not lifting and was incredibly annoying so I left.
