    Bench press

    45 x 10
    75 x 5
    110 x 3 - wavering all over
    148.75 x 2 - solid
    165 x 2

    185 x 5 - Sloppy bar path?
    167.5 x 5 - easy!
    167.5 x 5

    Notes

    Pretty good session end to end. Dropped the 3x5 and moved it to a single top set after the missed rep on the straight across sets last time.

    Interestingly (at least to me) this is a new estimated 1RM PR of 208 lbs / 94kg. Previous best was 190 lbs for a triple, over a year ago.

    Deadlift

    130 x 2 x 5 - really nice and on point
    190 x 3 - solid again
    255 x 2
    290 x 2

    320 x 5 - felt really sloppy

    Notes

    There was no way I was going to let myself reset below three plates, and the five reps went up. I've also (as said elsewhere) built a proper-like chalk bowl and figure out I need to latch in the right strap first on deadlifts.

    They felt a bit messy through the back. We'll see what the video looks like.

    You may want to cut down on the set up time for your deadlift. Especially those little false starts.

    Yea, I'm still learning strap use and not a fan of multiple setups. I'll get better.

    Bench press

    45 x 10
    75 x 5
    117.5 x 3 - left hand grip off and pinching the palm
    155 x 2 - right wrist twinge on rerack
    175 x 2

    190 x 5 - fifth rep was a real grinder!
    176.25 x 5 - Workin' in fine
    176.25 x 5

    Notes

    Ended up taking another two days off thanks to a severe mood dip that had me not eating for two days and my usual bimonthly Remicade.

    Got 190 x 5, a new PR where the previous was 190 for a triple in 2015. Not bad.
