    Squats: 3x5x315

    Rough day. I did do some deadlifts and power shrugs, but everything felt awful. Hit my squat sets (which actually felt pretty good, relative to the other lifts) and called it a day. No lifting until Tuesday, so hopefully I'm recovered by then.

    Feeling much better, other than a nagging ab strain. I also started taking a few supplements based on Jordan's supplement guide.

    A bodyweight bench press is so close I can taste it.

    First real workout in my home gym. 6 days off due to sickness, teething baby, remodeling project, truck repair, etc. I was exhausted tonight, but had to try the home gym. Lifting felt ok, but I kept it short and light. Definitely a different feeling to things then at the commercial gym.

    Home gym again. Much smoother on racking/unracking squats this time; still getting the "muscle memory" built up for these basic parts of lifting. It's an adjustment since I've lifted on the same commercial gym rack for the majority of my lifting experience, but I'm getting there.

    My list of home gym needs keeps growing:

    - mark off my bar with colored tape or something. The black finish makes it a pain for me to get my hands in the right spots on bench, especially once the bar gets chalk on it.
    - replace incline/decline bench with Rogue flat bench or similar. The current bench sucks for bench press.
    - get a thinner belt for deadlift. I've always used one of the commercial gym belts as my Best Belt is too thick.
    - build some pulling blocks. I don't want to rackpull on the rack safeties, so blocks seem to be the proper solution.

    Deadlift: 1525, 5405
    Bench Press: 35210
    Pullups

    Set a deadlift PR. My calculated max is 550, but I thought that would be quite a jump from my last max at 505, so I split the difference at 525. Dumb. 525 broke off the floor so easily, I have no doubt that I had another 25 in me. Oh well. I still have 11 months to add 76 pounds. I am hoping to get my pulling blocks built this week, so I can get back to my alternating haltings/block pulls.

    Congrats on the PR!
