    Squats w/ wraps @465 lbs-3. PR. Rpe 9.5. Not too bad really.
    Squats @ 370 lbs-8; @ 325 lbs-10. Exhausting as always but took some longer rest periods here, around 12 minutes, which helped a bit.

    Press @ 225 lbs-1, 0. I had too much leg kick on 1st rep so tried to repeat it but failed on 2nd try. Not enough pressing is clearly the culprit here.
    Press @ 185-5; @ 135-12

    Bench @ 255 lbs-3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3 1 1/2 minutes in between sets

    Bodywt 235 lbs. Better starting cutting to make 220 lbs later this month.
    Deadlifts @ 505 lbs-3. Rpe 9.25. Maybe could have had another rep but it would have been an absolute limit grind so didn't want to tempt fate, injury-wise, since I'm planning on competing on Oct 26th.
    Deads w/ straps @ 405 lbs-8. Exhausting as always.

    Bench w/ wraps @ 360 lbs-2, failed 3rd rep. I got stuck on 3rd rep about 5-6 inches above chest. Usually I can lock it out then. Spotter said I had one side pushing on underside of safety pin. Haven't done that in a long time.

    Bench @ 335 lbs-4; @ 315 lbs-6; @ 275 lbs-10.

    I had to drop presses today as I was compressing 2 workouts into 1 because I won't get a chance to go to the gym for a few days.
