    Bench w/ wraps, 1st rep paused @ 340 lbs-2. The spotter grabbed way early when 3rd rep slowed down so I can't even tell if I would get it. I yelled at him I had it but he had already grabbed the bar and helped move it about 3 inches. There wasn't anyone I knew around so I was stuck with unknown spotter, who of course screwed it up.

    Sumo deadlift @ 332 lbs- 4,4,4,4 Rpe 8. These are getting better and feeling more natural. There's definitely a sweet spot where the pull feels easier but I can only get it about half the time.

    Sumo Deadlift @ 395-2 RPE 8-8.5
    Sumo deadlift @ 340 lbs-4,4,4,4 RPE 8. This is starting to feel more natural, and I am using a fairly narrow stance for sumo with feet just outside hands. The cue to keep my hips close to the bar seems to help too.

    Sumo deadlifts @ 445 lbs-0,1,1 RPE 11, 9.75, 9.25 First one I didn't even get it off ground. I pulled feet in more narrow and got it up on 2nd try but only just barely. 3rd try I pulled feet just outside hands and it went up much better.

    Sumo deadlifts @ 355 lbs-4,4,4,4 I focused on getting tight and squeezing bar off floor and it went pretty well until last set when I was tired and had some form breakdown.

    Bench w/ wraps 1st rep paused @ 340 lbs-2 Fail- I wanted 3 but got stuck about 2 inches above chest, my common sticking point. I should have had this but I just felt off the whole session.

    Squats @ 335 lbs-8
    Squats @ 345 lbs-8
    Squats @ 355 lbs-8,8 RPE 9.5 but I was just beat by the end. I haven't had enough sleep this week due to family responsibilities and I think I'm just worn out.

    Skipped chins due to exhaustion. This whole session was a grind. I probably just need more sleep.

    Bench, 1st rep paused @ 320 lbs-7 PR. RPE 9.5 Spotter I didn't know tried to grab it when it slowed but I got him to let go before he helped. I later saw him struggling to bench 115 lbs so he was probably too nervous about the weight.

    Bench, 1st rep paused @ 320 lbs-5- Fail- I got it almost all the way up on 6th rep but it took so long I couldn't quite lock it out. I needed a break from bench so I actually did my squats next, then came back to get a 4th set in to get enough volume.
