    Bench- I spent some time messing around with grip width and bar path because it just seems like my bench has dropped too much based on weight loss. I've only lost about 12-15 lbs but my bench seems like it's 25-30 lbs down. In the past I expected about a lb off my bench for every lb lost bodyweight.

    Bench, 1st rep paused @ 275 lbs-1,1,1,3. It seemed like moderate width grip with bar path going from sternum angled towards head, along with a big breath beforehand seemed to be most effective. I then used my wrist wraps, and found that made a big difference.

    Bench, 1st rep paused w/ wraps @ 275-3 Easy
    Bench, 1st rep paused w/ wraps @ 315-3 Still relatively easy, Rpe 8-8.5. This is a big improvement. I'm guessing that my weight loss affected my setup enough that it was throwing everything off. From now on I'll try to adopt the modified bar path and use wraps.

    Press @ 187 lbs-5 I decided to use wraps just to see if that affected press as well.
    Press w/ wraps @ 187 lbs-5. So easy I decided to go for a small PR.
    Press w/ wraps @ 195-3 (fail as wanted 5), 2. I think I was just too fatigued by this point.

    Quick bench @ 225 lbs-10,10,10 Rpe 8. I just wanted to get some bench volume in and really didn't feel like close grip.

    Cable press down @ 190 lbs-10,10,10 Rpe 9

    Squats @ 420 lbs-5 This wasn't too bad at all, I'd say Rpe 9.
    Squats @ 422 lbs-6 PR, 5- After 1st set went so well I went for a little 2 lb 6 rep pr. PR set was rpe 9.75 and last set of 5 was about RPE 9.75, but I was pretty fatigued by that point.

    Squats @ 340 lbs-3,3,3,3,3 Quick

    Conventional deads w/ straps @ 420 lbs-5,6 PR, 5. 2nd set Rpe 9.75, 3rd set Rpe 9.5. I saw that an extra rep would be a 6 rep pr so I went for it. It was tough mostly from a fatigue standpoint. Exhausted by last set.

    SLDLs w/ straps @ 240 lbs-10 Rpe 9.5 Really tired

    Shrugs w/ straps @ 240 lbs-15,15, 15 Rpe 9.5 Just worn out. Surprised I got through all accessory work today.

    Bodywt 220 lbs- Crap it's going the wrong way.

    Squats @ 435 lbs-4 PR. I just felt like hitting a pr. Rpe 9.25. Maybe could have hit another rep.
    Squats @ 455 lbs-3,3. Rpe 9.5. This ties my 3 rep pr.

    Dumbbell Incline press @ 85 lbs-0 Fail. I tried to get the dumbbells up to my chest after I was seated and couldn't do it. In fact I thought I pulled something in my shoulder. The setup for dumbbells has become more difficult than the actual pressing, and I'm afraid I'm going to injure my shoulders. I'm going to scrap the dumbbell work from here out.

    Bench @ 225 lbs-10,10,15 I'll just keep doing light work on bench for some extra quick volume.

    Conven. Deads w/ straps @ 440 lbs-3 PR ,3,3 Rpe 9.25. This is a strap pr where my strapless pr for 3 is 475 lbs. I was only keeping track of strapped prs when they broke strapless pr but I realized it was getting too hard to keep track which ones were with vs without straps. Now I'll just keep track of them separately for convenience.
