    Literally ate some raw oats mixed with milk and sugar as a snack to bring up proteins and carbs a little.

    Comments: Squats were hard, felt the "good morning". Didn't sleep to well last night either.

    45x5
    70x4

    135x5 @10 (whoops)
    135x5 @10 (ehh went for it)

    Comments: I pushed myself a little too hard.

    295x1 @10 (ftl)

    Comments: Had a real struggle locking it out for the one rep, and couldn't get it off the floor for another. I think I drained my lower back strength doing "squat-mornings".

    235x1 (good morning)
    225x4 @9 (counted it with 235x1)
    225x5 @9.5

    Comments: Actually felt my quads contributing to the lift with 225. Narrowed my grip width and tried to stay upright. Imma try to post a form check later for squats (on Powerlifting to Win Forums). 235 was too much for my legs to actually work for the full set I guess.

    2) BENCH

    45x paused 10 sec
    45x5
    70x4
    95x3
    110x2

    137.5x3 @10 (bad bar)
    137.5x4 @9 (my fav bar)
    137.5x4 @9.25

    Comments: I hate how I can only use one of 3 bars in the gym if I wanna get any work done. Anyways, my boy Caleb was awesome at giving the press command, so it went smooth.

    3) DEADLIFT

    145x4
    205x3
    235x2
    265x1

    295x5 @9.5 (ya boii)

    Comments: 300x5 is getting gunned down next week.

    Thanks. It always was a natural lift to me, as I have relatively longer than average arms and an otherwise-hidden aggression that I can tap into before I pull.
