    12/2

    Squat 395x5
    bench 265x3,3,3,3,5
    deadlift w/ 140 lbs band tension at top - 225x2, 315x2, 405x1, 455x1, 485x1 (harder than I wanted. Only wanted something moderately heavy here and I had to grind way too much.)

    Had a stomach bug today. Happy just to make it through the workout without crapping my pants or spewing. I have been working the banded deadlifts (the short bands you stand on) as one of my deadlift variations for about half a year. However, I find they are impossible to consistently load. Sometimes I can do 510+ bands and sometimes only 465+ bands, despite my pull w/ straight weight being no weaker. For that reason, I put the bands in the garbage can today after the workout. Next Friday's workout should be fun: 400x5 squat and 580 deficit deadlift are planned.

    12/6

    Squat 380 5x5
    Press 200x3 (failed 4th)
    db row 120 2x15

    Squats felt great today. By the time I got around to pressing, only the 55lb squat bar was available. Since I hate pressing that thing, I just loaded 200 on it and saw how many reps I could do.

    12/10

    Squat 400x5
    3.5" Deficit Deadlift 580x1 (PR)
    Speed Deadlifts 335 5x2
    Bench press 275 5x3

    Happy to get the Squat and deadlift I was aiming for on a day where I definitely wasn't on top of my game. Usually I can pull about 40 lbs more from the ground than from this deficit, so I'd estimate my deadlift at 620 right now.

    12/15 light recovery day

    squat 225 2x5
    bench 135 3x5
    pullups bwx5, bw+60 3x4, bwx5

    Pullups felt the best they've ever felt at any bodyweight. My legs felt like dried poo, though. Hopefully they can recover adequately for Saturday's workout.

    12/20

    Squat 390 5x5
    Press 190 3x4
    db row 120 2x16

    The 390 was no harder than 385 last week. That said, it was hard as fuck. Looking at a meet on 2/25/11. Might start scaling back the volume on squats via lowering the reps on volume day.
